Decorating with grey is a clear thing as this color is good for everything: walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, upholstery and accessories, just vary the shades to get what you like. If you want something airy and neutral, choose dove grey, if not – charcoal grey is right what you need. Black will also look good and contrasting with grey and yellow; if you want a lighter look and airy feel, add white or cream. As for yellow, this color is more difficult to use it right and not to get a tasteless result or not to make your living room too bold. If you already have a gray living room, you can add just some yellow accents that can be changed for other when you are tired of them: a console table, a couple of frames, a mantel, pillows and throws. You can also add some bold yellow artworks and stools or ottomans to enliven the room.

Such a bright and light-filled room often looks a bit cold, so the designers opted for pastel furniture and décor. The furniture is modern, simple, partly from IKEA, which is a symbol of timeless Nordic décor. Pastel pillows, banners, chairs, wall and fireplace décor spruced up a cold space and turned it into an inviting one.
With this in mind, we return to our reality. Now that summer is over and we hurry towards wintertime, outdoor canopy beds are put aside for an encounter with cozy canopy beds in the bedroom. Feathered beds used to be frameless bags filled with feathers that had to be fluffed every morning. Now we indulge in soft but sturdy mattresses with luxurious bedsheets under breezy canopies.
Extravegant and flamboyant floral wall art is fresh. There is something refreshing about the beauty of natural flowers (without wanting to sound too flowery). If you are a person who appreciates the intricacies and facinations of living world, a large wall painting or print could add that inspirational edge which your bedroom has lacked.
