Gray. Brown. Gray and brown. Kind of gross. Sounds like some dirty old mud puddle. I never thought these two colors could work... but I think I found a way. It's not just anywhere, either; it's in my living room.
I have gray walls, gray curtains, and a gray rug. My furniture is a tweedy tan color, and I have gold and bronze accent pillows. I SWEAR to you I am not insane, though. This color collection may not be for everyone, but it works for me.
The secret to having gray and brown in a room together is an accent color that compliments them both. I chose shades of orange, particularly, tangerine.
I found this fantastic shade of tangerine fabric to make accent pillows with, and while it doesn't match my orange hounds tooth foot stool, I actually do like the way they look together.
I love the warm orange and brown tones together...
But I also love the orange and cooler greys together. I even love the cooler grey against the warm wood floor.
So I'm curious... do you have any non-traditional color combinations in your home? What are they?
