Home Décor Ideas: 5 Modern Grey Sofa Colour Scheme Ideas
The most popular sofa colour choice without a doubt has to be a grey sofa. Of course, there are multiple shades of grey to choose from, so a grey sofa certainly isn’t a bland choice for your home. We also think it provides the perfect neutral backdrop to any colour décor you fancy, making it extremely versatile; plus, it has longevity because you can update your décor around it without having to buy a new one. Here we explore some of our favourite grey sofa colour scheme ideas.
Black and white monochrome décor is striking and modern. It’s best to keep your space clean, simple and uncluttered, and introduce bold geometric shapes for maximum impact. Wall art can be a very effective way of continuing the monochrome theme. Monochrome décor makes a great backdrop for a grey sofa.
There’s something incredibly calming about a neutral interior, and a grey sofa is the perfect starting point for this colour scheme. The rise of the ‘greige’ trend has seen many Instagram and Pinterest boards full of these muted, subtle tones. To continue the natural theme of the décor, opt for a lightweight, grey linen sofa to perfectly complete this décor look.
If you live in a modern home or one with strong architectural features, then an industrial look could be the ideal backdrop for your grey sofa. Consider exposed brickwork, matte black metalwork and chunky, rustic wooden surfaces. Our new Johnston sofa is shown here in Heritage Herringbone, Harbour Grey, with an exposed brickwork wall.
For some luxuriously dark décor, how about being brave and painting your walls a rich, elegant navy blue. Paired with tan leather accessories and golden brass elements, a navy backdrop is a stylish choice for a grey sofa colour scheme idea. For that added touch of luxury, a grey velvet sofa like our Ferdinand corner, pictured here in Cotton Velvet, City, is a perfect choice.
For a more feminine interior look, grey works beautifully alongside a soft, dusky pink palette. Pops of white enamel and acrylic lift the overall look and help to create a modern, bright interior scheme. A soft grey wool sofa could be the perfect choice against a pretty pink backdrop.
