One of the best ways to jump into charcoal gray is with a gorgeous sofa. The visual weight of charcoal is the perfect match for a tailored sofa. Mid-Century Modern inspired sofas are especially well-suited for charcoal gray, with a nod back to the menswear of that era. Room & Board's Andre Sofa in Total Charcoal is a stunning example of how charcoal should be used on a sofa. The clean lines and appealing charcoal fabric, make this sofa the #1 reason to love charcoal decor. If you're not ready for a new sofa, charcoal accent chairs can easily refresh your living room style. Wallpaper has been back in vogue for a few years, and stylish new offerings are appearing every day. The wallpaper trend at first was a little timid, with delicate brocade designs, which were lovely, but almost apologetic as if they weren't sure they were welcome in your home yet. As the wallpaper trend took off, the patterns and designs became bolder and brighter, and even darker. This is why the Paradise Charcoal Wallpaper by Llewelyn-Bowen earns a spot on the list of favorite charcoal decor. The tone on tone design of this swanky wallpaper can bring charcoal onto your walls, even as just an accent wall.
The modern or minimalist space practically begs for bright color, even with cherry wood as the key feature. Hint at country-meets-city with Kelly green walls. Striking yellow strums a sunny, fresh-air note. If your home is Asian or Mediterranean inspired, take an adventurous color journey with bold orange walls highlighting red focal walls as the backdrop for culturally correlating artwork, tile and textiles. Before committing to any paint, sample it on opposite walls for color trueness, and to see how it visually cooperates with the cherry wood. Cherry red and green are natural partners. Cool cherry beds have a pink beige undertone that creates complementary contrast with carpet in warm greens, like olive or spring green. Soft contrast ensues by pairing a bed in warm cherry with olive carpet, while carpet in cool mint green contrasts with cherry beds of either tone. But a cherry bed with carpet in robin's egg blue has a fresh look. Medium purples are too close in color, but when paired with lighter shades, such as lavender, a cherry bed contributes to a harmony of red bedroom hues.
Arrange your bedroom furniture to fit the available floor space, leaving a minimum 3-foot clearance for major walkways and in front of sliding glass doors. If you place your medium-toned cherry bed in front of a window, the natural light will likely accelerate the wood-darkening process. Place a comfortable armchair diagonally against a bedroom corner to provide a convenient spot for relaxing or reading. Select a striped upholstery fabric in muted greens, yellows and reds to enhance your cherry bedroom furniture hues. Beige is a neutral, often among contractors' favorites, earning it the title "builder's beige." Occasionally, it's perceived as bland -- but combined with cherry wood, the look is harmonious. Warm, sandy yellowish brown sits near warm red on the color wheel, making them analogous colors. Achieve a slightly cooler, more modern note by opting for greige -- a gray-beige mix. To bring out the brown notes in your wood, go with an icy-blue white paint. Or achieve a clean, contemporary air with pure white.
