Hi, i would go red, paint one wall red and the rest a lighter colour - throw a couple of red cushions on the sofa - - maybe get a really busy rug - then pillows should be plain - just my thought !!

Do you need a rug? What's in the rest of the space? Since the sectional is large and the coffee table too, it leaves just a small area where the rug would show. If you want a rug, go for a solid color because a pattern would be difficult to see under all of the furniture. Otherwise, save the money.

I would go for black and green yellow pillows and other objects in this beautiful living room,
to add contrast and emphasize the modern aspect. Hope you like it!

I think your first step would be to anchor your seating area on a large area rug. Here are a couple of pics to indicate the size you need. Search the box above for gray sectional under photos and you'll get plenty of inspiration for your space.

I don't care for the rug, either. Your first pix…I like the idea of no rug. I would concentrate on wall color and throw pillows. Could the sectional be rotated so that the chaise runs under the window or would the back of the sofa interfere with the flow into another room?

Hi! in my opinion, a black rug would fit perfect.

This is the best space to work with because it's empty. I'd start with an accent wall on the opposite side of the window. Start with the paint colors first then start tying in the accessories. Whichever color you decide on the accent wall; incorporate that color in your accessories. I’d also include neutral colored flowing drapes, from top to bottom.

hi, sorry dont like the red rug either - maybe leave the rug out and splash colour with your cushions and one wall bright colour .... the coffee table is large so maybe a rug is not needed

You've got oodles of options here - you need to ask yourself - what colour makes you happy - and what is the style or image you want to portray.

Do you want to inject colour, or do you want it to stay neutral?

Give me some more feedback and then I'll send you some inspiration.
I'm not a big fan of red and grey - not enough "life" to it - unless you push the red raspberry...

Below is a photo of building a neutral scheme either colourful, or neutral - let me know which one appeals to you more - lots of colour, a little colour, or no colour - photos below are pretty much describing the two variables of lots of colour or not colour - they can equally be as interesting, you just need to design it correctly!
