This transitional living room has a gorgeous gray, white and beige color scheme that gives the space a soothing look and feel. The white wainscoting and tray ceilings adds an elegant feel to the space.
"I love gray — I think I always will," says interior designer Lexi Westergard. "However, I am definitely using it differently than I have in the past. I still love it for bathroom cabinet colors, pillows, rugs and accents. I am loving more of a greige or white for wall colors. I think this year we will see white as the dominant, go-to neutral color for walls."
If bright white walls are a bit out of your comfort zone, try a warm gray tone that’s light enough to almost look white, like Lexi did in this living room. She chose Benjamin Moore’s Classic Gray, one of her favorite paint colors.
A mix of patterns in a neutral palette adds visual texture and tactile appeal to this eclectic living room. Gingham curtains dress the windows, while a contemporary sofa is paired with graphic-printed throw pillows. A gold vase adds a metallic note to the space.

Traditional Living Room With Soothing Neutral Palette
Light-filled living spaces open up to each other, creating an easy flow throughout the home. The home was built in 1902 and still highlights its classic architectural details, like the coffered ceiling and French doors.
The first room enters from the grand foyer. The living room is designed for social gatherings whether it’s a weekly book club, a knitting circle or a wine tasting. But far from formal, the space – thanks to a soothing color palette and whimsical, unexpected touches – invites all those who enter to grab a seat, kick off their shoes and relax.
A relaxed oversized chaise is the perfect spot to take a break, read a book or steal a nap midday. Floral curtains flank the window and inject bright color into the gray living space. Built-ins provide plenty of storage, both open and hidden.
Soft neutrals ground this transitional living room, and subtle blue accents bring soothing splashes of color to the space. A comfy sectional provides seating for a crowd, and windows help create a bright, light-filled atmosphere.
