Grey Bedroom Ideas

From atmospheric dark grey to light pastel grey, here we show you how to choose and update your bedroom with grey

If you’re looking for grey bedroom ideas, you’re in good company. On-trend grey is fast becoming the ‘new magnolia’ and seems to be everyone’s colour of choice when it comes to decorating. High-street and designer outlets have cottoned on to this and are bursting with grey in all its multiple gradations and across every conceivable product – the only difficulty will be deciding what’s right for you.

 

Take your style into consideration when planning a grey colour scheme. If you prefer a modern bedroom, you may want deeper, more dramatic shades of grey. Team them with metal and glass for an industrial edge.

In a country, vintage or traditional bedroom scheme, bring in gentle powdery tones of blue or pink to temper the grey. One of the joys of decorating with grey is its sheer versatility – it looks great in absolutely any style of room as you will see with our grey bedroom ideas below.

1. Paint a panelled wall in a sophisticated grey 

Wood panelling painted in a serene shade of grey provides the perfect backdrop for a sophisticated master bedroom. The wood panels helps to add a nod to coastal style, without being too OTT.

To add a further elegant touch two wall pendants  in chrome provide a hotel-like lighting solution. Mounted either side of the bed they make ideal bedside lamps. Chrome is the ideal choice of metallic to keep the grey tones cool. Crisp white linens layered with soft grey cushions and throws adds to the well put-together look.

2. Choose warming grey tones for a feminine feel

A grey that airs on the side of lilac can instantly lend a softer edge to the overall look in a bedroom. In a feminine feel boudoir you’re best to opt for warm shades that have an undertone of pink to ensure the grey feels warm, rather than cold. Team with rich golds, blush pinks and pretty florals to add further warmth.

 

3. Invite a cosy feel with warm greys

Make a room feel inviting with a warm grey that mixes well with other neutrals for a comfortable layered look. Tints of yellow can give these deeper greys a greenish hue, which touches of red can make them look brown through to purplish in some lights. Add pops of black, khaki or olive to green-tinted hues, or nude beige. With red warmed tones, try lilac or rose. Warmer greys can be used anywhere you want to create a cosy, enveloping feel – perfect for a north-facing room that needs the chill taking out of it.


4. Choose a chic combo

Muted and mellow, this chic combo gives pink a whole new gender-neutral identity. Whether you’re a fan of industrial chic, modern country, Scandi style or classic elegance, this colour pairing can be adapted to suit any taste. Blush pink and grey is such a delicate combo. Add luxe with pops of polish with metallics like gold, brass or copper which work well with this pairing. The trick is to treat them as a finishing touch to help lift the scheme and prevent it looking flat.

5. Select the right shade of grey

Picking a grey for your walls is rather like choosing a white paint – there are far more to sift through than you might ever imagine. To get the best look for your space, try out plenty of samples on your walls and see how they work in different lights before committing. This soft grey sits beautifully with luxe cream furnishings and comforting textiles, creating a harmonious scheme.

Don’t feel that you have to ban bright colours from a grey room, though. With its neutral look, grey is super versatile and works well with many a block colour, as you can see in this stylish room with lime-green accents. Choose tactile fabrics and opulent furniture designs to make your scheme feel special – this chaise longue is definitely on our wish lists.

8. Give grey a rustic feel

Grey schemes can be totally sleek, but they can also be charmingly rustic. Immaculately painted walls don’t need to be paired with glossy furniture – distressed finishes look amazing, too. This room has a beautifully Scandi-country feel, and the ‘marshmallow’-like bedding and soft-coloured accessories keep the decor natural and relaxed.

9. Be inspired by hotel chic

If you love a hotel getaway, why not create some of the magic back at home. Signature pieces such as textural wallpaper, framed black and white prints and an upholstered headboard will make you feel like you’re on a city break every day of the week. In this stylish room, a mixture of subtle patterns and block greys act as a neutral base for the standout monochrome bed, which keeps the scheme classic and totally contemporary.

10. Search for the blue tones within grey

Accessories such as cushions have a massive role to play despite their compact size. In this room, their impact is two-fold: first of all, the block-coloured blues pick out the blue tones in the grey wall paint; and secondly the hello cushion adds instant modern appeal. Not bad for such small objects.
