Pale Gray Living Rooms

If you don't want to paint your living room white, but want to keep the space nice and bright, pale gray is a great alternative. It provides a nice neutral backdrop for your furniture and art, but still makes your trim pop. Light gray isn't simply a blend of black and white; it's actually quite complex. Depending on the time of day and amount of light shining in, gray can have a range of color showing through, from a pinch of pink, to a hint of blue.
