It’s official, grey is the new beige!
But is this just another passing trend or is it here to stay?
We can’t really know for sure, but what we do know is that grey furniture is as beautiful as any other interior design trend that has come about in recent years.
And for that reason, we’re going to pin this one as a trend you’re going to want to get in on, joining the rest of the experts and professionals in the industry.
This is more apparent if you love cool and calm colours in your home that allow you to create a relaxing atmosphere whilst not sacrificing much in the way of practical design or style.
Grey bedroom ideas
We’ll start in the most thought of place room in any home; the bedroom!
Grey bedroom furniture can come in all shapes and sizes, typically items like grey oak furniture usually do the best when it comes to styling and adding practicalness to your home. Grey bedrooms also include grey bedding to allow the colouring of the room to stay consistent, even with the focal point piece - which is no surprise, your bed.
Grey rooms don’t only have to feature grey colours, that would be absolutely ludicrous since no rooms look good with just one colour being featured - it is important to feature other accent colours like yellow, reds or even blues to help make it easier on the eyes and not to overuse the colour...let's talk more about this.
Not just grey
It is important to understand that you can match in with other colours, perhaps having a grey and rose gold bedroom to show your more light and relaxed feel intertwined with a more bolder and eye-catching look; which can be great if you’re looking to add grey bedroom furniture sets with rose gold accent pieces.
Alternatively, you could feature a light grey bedroom furniture or even a dark grey bedroom furniture in your personal haven; perhaps mixing in the styles of grey together alongside something like white to get a grey white bedroom that constantly features a calm and welcoming atmosphere at no cost of being overwhelming.
Other great matching colours can be things like;
- Navy blues
The list just goes on, grey has almost become the new white or black; in the sense that you can match it with almost anything.
More than one style
Grey oak bedroom furniture usually gets pinned with the whole modern style and we’re unsure why this is. Perhaps it's something to do with today's market or just the stereotype around colours like grey and white;
Regardless, we are here to tell you that grey works with almost any style of furniture
Whether you’re looking to add modern grey bedroom furniture in the style of grey oak bedroom furniture which can replace your current decor or if you’re looking to add grey shabby chic furniture such as a grey shabby chic mirror - you can be reassured this grey coloured trend will tick all the boxes for your interior design.
On top of that, you can even look to add french grey furniture to your light grey room which will give you an expensive, elegant, yet calm feel to your interior.
Be sure to add accent colours
One of the most popular styles of grey bedroom furniture sets are ones that feature an accent colour like yellow.
The reason that grey and yellow bedrooms are so popular is that each colour features such opposite characteristics that they end up working so well together. Does that mean yellow decor is back in?
But does it mean it can work with this new great interior design trend?
You could even do things like adding grey bedroom walls to a grey and red bedroom, this way you can simply add accent colours to get your desired look.
A pink grey bedroom is also up there with some of the odder but eye-catching looks you can pull off with grey furniture.
Finally, a cost-efficient decor trend
Keeping up with design trends can be annoying, for both you and your wallet.
Thankfully, with the grey wood bedroom furniture, you could most probably be able to get away with turning your current oak furniture into grey painted oak furniture.
Although this is not ideal since you may not do a very good job and you would make a mess of your intended grey bedroom designs and ruin already perfectly good furniture.
Grey painted bedroom furniture can be a tricky one to pull off, so you should probably leave furniture designs like that one up us, the expert; HomesDirect365.
The way you would go about this is by adding grey wood bedroom furniture to a primarily grey themed bedroom and then you would add grey pink bedroom decor in the style of accent pieces like photo frames and wall mirrors to help achieve the desired look.
Grey bedroom inspiration - some of our favourite pieces
Hopefully, by now, we’ve got you thinking about what sort of bedroom design you’re going to want to end up with. Whether you’re going with one of our suggested modern grey bedroom ideas like rose gold and grey bedroom or a grey and yellow room, you’re going to want to add pieces that can give you this desired look.
This is where we can help…
The following are some of our favourite grey bedroom set pieces that can give you your desired look.
Grey Bedroom Wardrobes
Alongside a modern grey bed, grey bedroom wardrobes are also a focal point piece if you choose the right one.
Some wardrobes can look overwhelming in a small grey bedroom, so we’d recommend opting for a single one if that is the case.
Other than that, you can’t go wrong with adding a large wardrobe to your grey and wood bedroom if you seek to get the grey interior trend everyone can’t seem to stop talking about.

These accent pieces are perfect for finishing the look in your haven, along with adding decorative and practical style - something that most furniture may not be able to do on its own.

Grey chest of drawers
For storage and for looks, adding a shabby chic grey chest of drawers to your bedroom is another great way of completing the look you desire.
And because of the adding tabletop space, you can also use it as a place to add your accent colours like the yellows, whites and even blues, which we discussed a little earlier.
Here are some of our favourite chests that we think will get you the look you need:

And lastly, adding one of our oak grey beds to your home will give you a focal point piece that is going to be able to further accentuate the grey colours and any other accent colours you may already feature.
There are quite a few choices you could go with, depending on the style of your bedroom and the rest of the home;

Whichever grey painted bed you choose, it will more than certainly give you the look you have been seeking; consequently, it is probably the most important piece in your room if you’re wanting to pull off this look.
Grey living room ideas
Continuing on from the bedroom we have arguably the second most important room in the home; the living room.
This is another great place for you to express your grey living room ideas throughout. Since they're plenty of colours that go with grey, there will be no shortage of ideas in terms of both the grey decor and grey furniture which you can feature.
Just like a bedroom; not just grey
Just like we discussed in the bedroom, it is important to know that you don’t just have to feature greys of all shades to achieve the hottest design trend of 2019; you are able to also feature accent colours like reds and blue to get the desired look whilst still having a space that is calming and relaxing.
There are plenty of modern colours schemes for living room, some of these colours schemes for living rooms consist of;
- A grey and brown living room
- Blue and Grey living room
- And even a grey and cream living room
These are amongst the ‘tame’ range, you could go for pinks and purples if you’re wanting more of a bold look.
Helping to add to the grey style, you can also add accent pieces like grey wall art to be placed on grey walls to help accentuate this particular look.
Alternatively, if you don't want to convert your living room colours to only featuring grey and another accent colour, having something like a grey feature wall will allow you to set a focal point in your room - this is beneficial if you want to complement some grey furniture you have picked up from HomesDirect365.

Don’t forget about the dining room
Moving on from grey living rooms, one of the areas of the home we’d finally like to mention is the dining room. A place where we can spend a lot of our time with friends and family but one we necessarily don’t think of decorating immediately; lounge and bedrooms usually come before this.
The dining/kitchen area can feature many different colours, this is down to the drawers and worktops which may already be in place as well as the electronic applications that you have previously added.
Because of this, mainly due to the preinstalled drawers - it can be hard to get the complete grey look you seek.
So in this case, we’d recommend doing one of the things we’ve mentioned previously and that is to blend the grey in with another colour such as white to make up a white and grey dining set for instance.
Alternatively, you could feature a white table and grey chairs so that you can add more focused look to this room, ideally you’re wanting to match the whites with other whites in the room, say the walls or ornaments.
Grey dining room inspiration
Just like we’ve done with the previous rooms, we’d like to point out our favourite grey furniture and decor pieces so that you can get that grey look you have always wanted.
Grey dining room table
Adding a modern grey dining room table to your dining area can be a great way of adding a focal point piece to the interior. To further work on this you could make up a grey dining table set when combining grey table and chairs.

Grey dining chairs
To put with your grey dining room chair, grey dining room chairs can help to further emphasise the feel you’re going for. However they are not necessary to complete the grey look; if you’ve already got a grey dining table in place, they can make for a great addition nonetheless.
