1. Pair a grey sofa with blue accessories
Contrast a grey sofa with blue accessories through your cushions or vases to get a taste of this colour combo in your living room. Try a brilliant blue like cobalt for a pop of colour and bring in light wood accents to keep the look fresh and contemporary.
For a coastal-inspired feel, go for light blue tones like turquoise cushions on a light grey sofa. If you have some wall space, display artwork that picks up these blue hues as well. Lastly, let in plenty of natural light to create a relaxing, breezy space.
2. Go luxe with blue and grey velvet sofas
For a glamorous take on this colour combo, anchor your living room with sumptuous blue and grey velvet sofas. Keep to cool undertones like charcoal grey and navy to set the mood for this elegant look.
When styling velvet sofas, create a high-end feel by layering in luxurious textures like silk cushions and rich dark wood finishes. Top it off with gold accents for a dazzling touch.
3. Accent blue and grey with yellow
Uplift a grey and blue living room by working in a warm mustard shade or a cheerful yellow like Pantone’s colour of the year, Illuminating. Cushions and throws are easy ways to test this vibrant hue – look for soft fabrics like velvet or corduroy to keep it cosy.
A palette of grey, blue and yellow can be distinctly modern and stylish in the living room when done right. With a light grey sofa as your neutral base, mix in deeper shades like navy blue and marigold yellow. Then complete the look with a neutral rug and a contemporary oak side table.
4. Let a blue sofa stand out in a neutral room
Make a blue corner sofa the focal point by keeping your living room in a neutral palette. Go for white walls and curtains so your centrepiece pops. Stick with modern accessories in light tones like a slim white coffee table and cream rug. Then layer your sofa with grey cushions and a faux fur throw for softness.
5. Style grey furniture against a blue feature wall
Paint a feature wall blue to give life to your grey sofa. Style the space with modern touches like a glass coffee table and geometric rug to get a cool contemporary look. You could even hang a large art piece on the accent wall for more visual impact.
But if you prefer more drama, try wood panelling a feature wall in a rich midnight blue. Keep the look understated and sophisticated with a grey velvet sofa and silk print cushions.
