Grey is the it color right now in design. Neutrals like taupe, tan, beige, cream & white are still in rotation but the trend is grey. Pale dove grey to dark smokey gun-metal grey are finding their way onto upholstery, walls, rugs and just about every surface in the homes of people who live on the edge of what is current.
This is the perfect color palette for my living room/house! The walls are already the dark turquoise. Gonna paint the stereo cabinet red, recover the chairs with yellow and cream, add a few grey side tables. and a few multi colored accent pillows to the cream couch I already have and it's done!
