Gray is the New Black

Gray is such a wonderful neutral base color to work with.  It is a color that is not too harsh, or too subtle.  It is a prominent color that works well against any color in the rainbow.  Here are a few examples of some interiors using the color gray.

Living Room Furniture Placement

When space planning your living room, it is important that the room be balanced in scale and that the space arrangement allow for proper circulation.  Here are a few furniture placement measurements for you to keep handy:
1) It is best to leave at least 18″ between your sofa and coffee table.

2) If you have furniture adjacent to your sofa, it is wise to leave at least 20″ between the two pieces for easy access.

3) Although we have done a blog on area rug placement, a quick measurement to remember is the space between your wall and area rug.  If it is a large piece, it is visually better to leave at least 18″ of space between the wall and rug.
