baby pillows Unstoppable Colour Trend Grey 3 - In The Lounge funny cushion covers

I just can't see my world ever living without grey - not after this years unstoppable colour trend has inspired many a home makeover in the last 11 months or so. Saying that, I have always had a thing for grey - but now it just seems to be so much better appreciated in a range of decorating styles, that ideas for using this hue are pouring out of home decorating sites and magazines - the world is hooked!

With oodles of new inspiring interior design ideas, grey is going to be around for some time. Why not get your way with grey - check out some of our favourite looks for the lounge today! In the loungebaby pillows, try a serene and casual mood by choosing grey curtains that are almost white. This light and airy grey or off-white can help to open up a small lounge or simply make it lighter and more welcoming.

In a traditional styled room, paint the other features with eggshell white - skirts, doors, window frames, mouldings, fireplace etc. etc. White furniture will improve this idea and really make the room crisp and fresh - use slip covers if you need to hide bright or heavily patterned sofas and chairs.

You will need a touch of black or better still - a dark wood to ground the room. We would suggest having a delicate coffee table central to the room and matching side tables. A dark wooden floor would also improve the look - why not create a zone by using a neutral floor rug under the coffee table?

Never underestimate what grey can bring to the home and how well it brings a room together; you can work it into almost any existing décor or style. We saw quite a lot of grey paired with yellow in the summer - a bright acid yellow was the preference against a dark, smoky grey. For the end of year, yellow is still around but its darker - a mustard tone for example and is set off with lighter greys.

It's not done often this colour collaboration - which makes it all the more stunning when it is. Start with pattern, a focal wall dressed with a light grey and white patterned wallpaper we are loving the re-emergence of paisley prints right now. With a white sofa against this focal wall, you can dress it with mustard yellow cushions and white textured throws (plus additional cushions in white for a more relaxed look). Look for grey fabric for the same mustard grey at windows. Carry the grey out with accessories to decorate the coffee table and a grey rug to ground the white sofa and furniture.
