Charcoal, this darker neutral is one of the most versatile of the bunch. Pair is with other easy foundation tones or any shade of pastel. The most modern neutral, charcoal gray looks great in dining rooms, living rooms and even nurseries. Here's how to use it best. Charcoal gray may be a neutral, but it's also a statement. It's bolder than its lighter brethren; more modern than its neutral cousins, the beiges; and less dramatic than black. True gray (or achromatic gray) is a mixture of black and white. It has equal values of red, green and blue (RGB), and thus no hue. Off-grays — what we most often use in decorating — have very subtle but important differences in the values of red, green and blue. Cool grays are noticeably blue, green or violet. Warm grays are noticeably pinkish or brown and may have yellow tones.
Paint walls lavender-gray and install low bedside tables in high-gloss white, black or wood. Hang large abstract canvases in shades of purple and lavender as the focal point in the room. Add a silver-gray rug or carpet. Embellish the room with groupings of two or three metallic accessories or one large sculpture. Enhance the art by focusing light directly on it. Add two rectangular accent pillows for clean, straight lines. Use furniture with straight lines and keep clutter to a minimum in this space. If we look back, we'll see that purple is the color of royalty. Cleopatra's favorite color was purple and numerous other personalities fancies this shade. Purple has remained very popular and nowadays it's one of the first choices in interior design.
Light wall colors -- creamy ivory, almost white, barely yellow, light caramel -- provide an ideal backdrop against medium-tone cherry bedroom furniture. As the cherry wood ages and darkens, the color contrast between the light walls and dark furniture becomes more striking. Create a focal point by painting an accent wall in sage green. The red tones of the cherry wood and the muted green feature wall visually balance each other nicely because red and green are opposites on the color wheel, making them complementary decorating hues. Layered window treatments add function, style and texture to a bedroom. Install window shades that are woven from natural grasses, wood or reeds with a hint of red to enhance your cherry furniture with an earthy texture. Hang curtains in front of the woven shades to create a layered, stylish appearance. Select white sheers to brighten medium cherry tones with a light, breezy feel or choose silky lined draperies in muted green to heighten the furniture's elegant appeal with luxurious fabric in a complementary hue.
