I’ve already given you one option on how to update your color scheme from warmer beige tones to cooler grey ones.
But suppose you don’t want to go dark.
Suppose you want to go gray, but you like light and airy. You're not into the drama that a high contrast can bring.
Use a beige and gray color scheme by modifying your palette with fabrics that combine the two.
If you have neutral upholstery, or cream or ivory or beige, you can make gray your accent color. There are lots of new fabrics out there that combine beige and gray to make for a fresh look and a cooler palette. You'll be surprised how a warm, neutral room can cool down by purposely applying gray (as an accent color) with beige.
So feel free to keep that beige sofa or beige floor or beige paint color and simply change out a few things to gray.
Below are some beautiful examples of a beige and grey scheme. Enjoy!
