Every year when spring begins to shine, we start getting the urge to redo our space and add some kind of colour change or new decor element. This year, we’ve been thinking a lot about how wonderfully smooth and calming grey tones are trending and how great they look in decor schemes with other neutrals and with pops of colour. That’s why we’ve had our eyes peeled fro tips, tricks, advice, and resources on decorating with charcoal grey, which is our favourite shade in particular.

Then, before you start adding anything, we’d suggest looking through something like this discussion featured on A Shade of Teal that talks about different ways to accent a room with charcoal grey. Depending on how thoroughly you accent your room, you might hit a level of grey inclusion that you like with simple decorative details before committing to something bigger like, say, painting your walls! Perhaps you’ve already painted your walls a stunning charcoal grey that you’re very happy with indeed but now you’re looking for other ways to lighten the scheme a little bit, just to make sure the space has good balance?

That’s why we quite enjoyed the way Chicly Poised depicts and talks about the idea of pairing a smooth charcoal grey element in your colour scheme with a visibly minimalist style in terms of shape, materiality, and detail. Choose a piece with some pattern or texture and pick furnishings that have clean, linear shapes and metallic elements and, voila, you have a minimalist room that suits your charcoal grey hue perfectly! For many years, the standard in carpeting was to choose a colour or shade that was actually lighter than most of the pieces in the rest of the room in order to keep things feeling open. Ever since we saw this feature on Houzz, however, we can’t stop thinking about how much we adore the idea of making the carpet a dark charcoal grey and adding lighter details and decorative elements for balance.

The stunning grey on the floor appears to ground the room, making it feel anchored and cozy rather than dark or heavy. Then we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how The Spruce lays out some charcoal grey do’s and don’ts in a really simple, more straight forward way in order to help you keep things grounded and smooth but also light and open.

In that case, we think you night really appreciate some of the information and advice found on this piece by Homedit that talks about some ways of incorporating your favourite grey into a smaller private space without making it feel too dark and closed off. They’ve used charcoal grey as the base and then chosen a strongly popping dual colour scheme and picked patterned and visually textured piece in both of those shades so that they contrast and blend well all at once.

Perhaps you are interested in the idea of adding another colour or shade to your scheme besides just charcoal grey and cream but you’re feeling more subtle and you’re just not sure that a bright pop is quite what you’re looking for? The charcoal actually appears to pull out grey undertones in the blue itself, making them blend beautifully even as the lighter shade provides some contrast. In fact, pairing certain shades with those greys now can hearken back to previous decades when it was popular, giving the whole place a stunning vintage vibe that’s at once old fashioned but also somehow contemporary thanks to repeating trends. We’re big fans of the way they used overarching concepts we’ve talked a lot about, like shade balance, keeping things light, and adding pops of colour, by using charcoal as the exterior base, white for the trim, and a lovely teal for the door.

Would you actually prefer to think about, consider, and learn more about all kinds of ways that charcoal grey can be incorporated into your exterior decor scheme specifically, since you’re having trouble making decisions? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll really enjoy the discussion happening on Homedit that includes taking a look at things like the way very dark charcoal as a base might be offset by adding details in lighter stone.
