So, you invested in sturdy gray furniture and you can't afford to replace it all, but you really need a facelift in the living room. An area rug with lots of color like this one with the dark and light gray, blue, dark and light plum. Change out an overhead light fixture for one such as my blue one that adds shape, color and character to the room. Another light fixture for a table top brings in two of the new colors with the base and shade. Glassware such as vases always brings in nice color and sparkle to a room and gives it a lift. Using silver as an interpretation of gray will also add some gleam. Then, of course, add lots of throw pillows in your chosen colors to mix and match and make a statement!
