Grey living room decorating ideas pictures

Now that I’ve kind of changed direction with my living room, I’m trying to figure out exactly what I want to do with the walls.  I’ve known from the beginning that I wanted some kind of wainscoting or trim design on the walls, and that hasn’t changed.  But now that I’m not doing the teal walls, and I’m opting for more of a neutral wall color with possibly only some slight contrast, I’m not quite sure exactly what kind of trim detail I want on the walls.  So I went in search of inspiration.

I could still go with the original idea of a traditional wainscoting on the bottom and grasscloth on the top.  Y’all know I love grasscloth!  And instead of doing the teal grasscloth like I had originally planned long ago, I could opt for a more neutral color.  The neutral grasscloth would give some beautiful texture to the walls, and a slight contrast with the wainscoting, without being a jarring contrast like the teal and white grey living room decorating ideas pictures I currently have.

Or, of course, I could forgo the grasscloth idea altogether and just do a wainscoting on the bottom with a light/neutral paint color on top.  I love this particular wainscoting, and especially how they wrapped the chairrail about an inch before the window trim.  Such beautiful details!

Another idea, kind of building on the idea above, is to not only have the picture frame moulding below the chair rail, but above the chair rail also.  Of course, the ceiling in this picture is very tall, so they have two additional sections of picture frame moulding above the chair rail. My ceiling is only eight feet tall, so I’d only do one section above the chair rail.

Here’s another example that shows just one additional section of picture frame moulding above the chair rail.  This has such a classic and elegant look!  I also think it might visually extend the height of the ceiling.  Possibly.

And one more example of that in white.  I think this might be my favorite, but I’m still not quite sure.

And then another option is to use that idea, but add grasscloth inside the picture frame moulding.  I do like this white and gray, but I would opt for something with a little more neutral with less contrast — perhaps even a grasscloth that’s very similar to the wall color so that the only difference is that the areas inside the picture frame moulding have some beautiful texture.

A simpler idea that still adds an elegant touch is to do tall rectangles of picture frame moulding without a chair rail.

And building on that same idea, this one has two layers of moulding on each rectangle.

And finally, this has always been one of my favorite designs.  Of course, this staircase is just a touch grander than my house.  😀

But here’s a dining room with a similar treatment.  If I did this one, I would do it all the way to the ceiling rather than using a chair rail high on the wall like they did in this dining room.

So those are a few ideas I’m tossing around in my head for my living room and entryway walls.  There are two main walls where the trim design would show — on the long entryway wall, and on the long wall that is between the living room and the kitchen, and that second wall is the first thing that people generally see when they walk through the front door, so I want it to look really nice.

Decisions, decisions!  :)
