This warm, midcentury modern living room is filled with preserved, original details. Crisp, white walls pair with natural wood accents around the door frame and windows, as well as the light-toned hardwood flooring. A comfy gray sectional sofa rests beneath a long gallery wall filled with the homeowners favorite memories, while a big round globe light brightens 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.
Close to the kitchen and breakfast room, this living space is a great place to relax with friends and family. A plush, leather sectional with bright red accent pillows offers a comfy spot to sit and enjoy a movie.
