Ashley's "Complements with a Touch of Gray" Room

Complements with a Touch of Gray




Atlanta, Georgia



Colors Used

Walls - Behr Stone Hearth Accents - Lime Green and Candy Apple Red

Color Inspiration

Both my boyfriend and I are artists so the use of color in our house is a must. This being the first house we have owned, we went crazy with the colors. I chose the dark grey to set a backdrop for the various pops of color I already had in the our furniture and accessories.

Color Tips

Even though color theory can be a bit overwhelming for those not familiar with it, I highly recommend doing a little research before diving into choosing colors for a room. I am a big fan of compliments and how they make a big impact with just a few pieces.

Love it! Hoping one day you will paint the dining room to compliment the living room. :)

Nice accents! Definitely brings out the colors with the dark wall.

I live in Atlanta and need so much help decorating my house...I'm jealous. I really like your boldness in choosing such a dark color, it came out very well :)

This room is so personal and organic, which is what I think makes a great room.

The only downside is that the rest of the house looks so boring in comparison...maybe you just haven't got that far.

Ok. So I know I know you, but this looks so much better than the other entries! I also have pops of color in my house, but not as balanced. This room is so simple and bold. Logical yet creative. Love it!

Looks great! I'm loving the art, especially the piece behind the couch.

I think you should paint your dining room the same red as the rug in your living room! :)
