1. Pick a Gray and Run With It

This living room by The White House Interiors feels light, bright and sophisticated thanks to the use of similar shades of pale gray across all the surfaces, from the walls and the built-in shelves to the upholstered furniture to the carpet.

A smart way to make a small space feel bigger, this design trick is often used with a very dark shade highlighted by light accents, but it works equally well when reversed like this.

To replicate the look in your home, choose one shade for the main elements in your room, be it light or dark gray, but ensure that you break it up with accessories, as demonstrated here by the black-framed coffee table and the wood-framed mirror.
