Grey furniture: How to style it across your home

Grey furniture is a trend on everyone’s interior design list right now. Modern, sophisticated, and incredibly versatile, there are plenty of stylish ways to bring grey into your dining room, bedroom, living room – anywhere across your home.

From chairs and tables to sideboards and display cabinets, bringing painted grey décor to your interior design is a great way to update your style while keeping a timeless look. We’ve rounded up everything you need to know about styling grey furniture across your home.

Dining room furniture: Subtle hints of grey


When it comes to dining room furniture, focus on things that have touches of grey. This will give a subtle, modern feel into your room. Using hints of grey here and there make sure it’s never overbearing.

The St. Ives natural oak and grey dining table and 6 chairs makes a light and open setting for a comfortable place to eat. The dining table balances smartly painted grey legs with a natural oak surface, with its natural wood grain. Paired with grey painted dining chairs that have contrasting cushions, these blocks of colour and texture break up the overall look, adding interest and texture to your dining setting. Coordinate your layout with a large grey sideboard along the wall. This brings the look together while also providing useful storage.

Light walls and floors will allow your grey furniture to stand out in a Scandi inspired setting, and a round grey dining table will instantly make your space feel open and welcoming. If you want to create a formal atmosphere, place a dark grey rug beneath your table and paint a feature wall in a deep shade of blue or burgundy, for a strong look.

Cosy and modern: Painted grey bedroom furniture

When using grey furniture to style your bedroom, think about the mood you want to create. In a country-inspired bedroom, introduce light grey furniture and team it with pastel shades such as powder blue or a lighter, chalky shade of grey.


The St. Ives range of grey bedroom furniture enables you to coordinate across the whole room, keeping the look effortless and natural. You can match a sumptuous grey bed with a blanket box and wardrobe, and other essential pieces that suit the size of the space. Soft lines and a matt finish give a calming effect, and will instantly make your bedroom feel cosy and welcoming.

Choose a grey sofa for the living room


Grey sofas are incredibly versatile, from the silver end of the spectrum to rich charcoal shades . They can be used in many different types of design schemes. Styling a grey sofa with light wood flooring and minimalist décor works well in an ultra-modern living room – think pale walls with prints and a modern light fixture. Alternatively, pairing grey with a painted grey bookcase and antique-effect accessories helps you create the perfect balance of town and country living.

Grey works well with a variety of colours, so if you fancy a change in years to come you can easily change the wall colour to make an entirely new look. By thinking carefully about how you introduce grey furniture into your home, you can make an interior look that brims with style and character.
