Montage: 54 Living Rooms with Gray Sofas

Why gray sofas? First, I apologize for missing two days of blogging. I took a quick day trip to Connecticut to visit a friend. A friend who has so much faith in my taste that she has hired me to decorate her gorgeous new apartment in New York City. You didn’t realize that I’m an interior designer? I’m not! This very loyal friend is confident that through my writing and research, experience overseeing the building and renovations of my own places, and years of absorbing interior images, that I can do this. Or rather, we can do this. It’s definitely a collaboration. And really fun.

I’ll mainly be choosing furnishings. The project doesn’t involve any construction, kitchens, or bathrooms. The apartment is brand new and will be delivered finished and pristine. We  will pick paint colors, wallpapers, rugs, and furniture. The budget is similar to what I would spend if it were my own home, which makes it a lot easier. I’m nervous, but excited.

We’ve decided to go with a gray sofa in her living room. We’re thinking about a serene white and gray scheme, or white and gray with green accents. The dining room is in the same space, so we can play with that too. I’m sure I’ll be treating you to a lot of posts inspired by our deliberations and eventual decisions.

  1. Congratulations and good luck! What a fun project.

  2. Charcoal tufted velvet (on chesterfield-ish sofa) is top 5 on things I love the most. Love the images!

  3. Gail

    Sound like a lot of fun! Grey and white leaves room to add almost any color accent and the ability to change the accent color ona whim, FUN!! Have fun!

  4. Sherrie Lucas

  5. Evelyn Downtain

    I have peach colored walls and a traditional charcoal sofa and love seat! What color window treatments and rug should I get! Please help

  6. Hi Evelyn, I’d keep the window treatments neutral in gray, and do a neutral, lighter colored rug. You can add more color if you want with pillows.
