37Wood Against Grey
In a room with lots of wooden details like ceiling beams or the cupboards, grey would be a complementary yet contrasting color with its cool tone against the warmness of the wood, adding depth and dimension to the room, and balancing everything out.
Using only grey in a living room may not be a terrible choice after all. Using different shades of grey along with patterns and textures is enough to design a homely place with a masculine look.
When a room has an amazing view of greenery, you can opt for keeping the room fairly simple with whites and greys to draw attention to the view with big windows, bringing light to the room.
