If you ever plan on channeling your inner love for Mother Nature, spicing up your room with green is the perfect choice! One would ask, “Why?” It simple – green is refreshing, inspiring and calm; just like Mother Nature. And as much as green is a great color to choose, pairing it up with other colors can be quite a task. Adding hints of grey may actually do the trick though. Even though grey is not technically a color, it’s a great choice for basically anything. It’s fashionable, it’s hip, and just like black and white, grey never goes out of style.
A grey living room would look both formal and stylish, and adding different hues of greens to it, makes a whole lot of difference. Grey may be a tricky color to pair with, but when mixed just about in the right amount; the space you are designing will make anyone speechless. Today, we will be showing you that even when grey are not really that dynamic for a color, adding some greens as accent will definitely create a great focal point. Check out the 15 Lovely Grey and Green Living Rooms we have prepared for you!

This somewhat traditional living room is an example of how an unusual color like moss green can go to the wall. Accent walls are great, don’t get us wrong, but moss green is not really that much of a favorite, but pairing it with grey furniture, everything seems to work out just great!

Green is perhaps the easiest hue for the color-shy to accept. The reason: It anchors the natural world around us, and we’re used to large doses at a time. Lay the groundwork with accents, such as these throw pillows and vase, then gradually tiptoe into a stronger scheme.
