I have been dying to pick new couches for our living room. We currently have hand me down old navy blue recliner couches from DH’s apartment. I hate them.
We went shopping and chose a set we really like but I’m concerned about it clashing with our wall color, which is grey. Our tables and shelves are all from ikea and are their dark black/brown color.
We like this couch and the coordinating chair (chair looks small but its actually oversized)
Do you all think this will look nice against a grey wall?

I am in love the couch and chair. I can see why you’re concerned, but I am one of those visual people. I have to see it to be able to make a decision.

@Rouquine: yea im visual too. too bad there aren’t any rental programs so I can test it out. lol
I’m unable to post the color because of the way behr’s website works. I put it in google images and this came up tho, not sure how accurate it is, color-skewed monitors and all.

I also wondered if gray and tan will clash when painting my office (my house has warmer neutrals, so I ended up choosing a griege), but I looked up some pix on Pinterest and found quite a few examples where it looked nice. I think it depends on whether your gray is a warm gray or cool gray. And even then, it still could work.
Love the furniture set!

Sure it will work, as long as you have plenty of windows/light in there and use some other things to pull in the grey. Grey is a pretty neutral color anyway.The worst that can happen is you have to paint the room again,right?
I googled beige couch/grey walls, and look at some of these examples of all the colors used in combination.

i think that tans/browns and greys goes together well!

This might help you. In our house, we have grayish walls throughout the downstairs and a tan couch. I think that it really works! We added a bright color (yellow) to keep it from being too plain.
Idk why this photo is so grainy. Sorry!

Take some leftover paint, paint a large swatch on a piece of white board, and then take it to the furniture store to hold up next to the fabric swatch. Or ask the store to lend you a swatch of your preferred fabric and bring the swatch home to see how it goes in the room.

I vote that the furniture is cool, you should buy it, and the worst that happens is you spend $100 and a weekend repainting!

I also have gray walls, and we do also have a very light tan/beige oversized chair.
This pic isn’t so good, but you can see that cream/light tan/beige goes nicely with gray, at least IMO, haha!!

@almostmrsj: omg DH would kill me if we had to paint again. we painted it gray in august lol
@AnnieAAA: yess, that looks great!!!! I wanted a lighter couch to brighten up next to the grey walls and dark furniture and thats exactly what it does in the photo, tho our living room is much smaller.
@MrsR4ever: its from american signature, not sure where your located. I know most of their stores are on the east coast and not that many
