While most people think gray walls would be depressing and dull, if it’s done right they can add drama and mystery to a room. Here’s what to do:
1. Contrast Colors

If you have colorful furniture or accent pieces, pairing them with gray walls will really make the colors stand out and make the room more visually interesting. The bolder the colors of your furniture, the more dramatic the effect will be.
2. Add Accents
If you don’t want a whole room to be painted gray, paint only one wall to accent what’s on it, either a window with a stunning view or a piece of art you love. It will draw attention to the area without being ostentatious.

3. Add Wallpaper
I love how the gold-colored pillows tie in nicely with the lamp as well as the gold touches on the flowered wallpaper.
