First you should remember don’t use gray as the accent color, which will make your room appear dirty. But it can be used as the basic or dominant color with decor in bright colors. The following bedroom color ideas may give you inspiration.

1. Bright color bedding and carpets. These decors with bright colors are best recommended to go with a gray wall. Using gray as the background and bright bedding and carpets as the accent decors is a very good method. Shags in solid color, especially bold neon color ones always goes well with the color gray.

2. Furniture. Bright and striking colors like white, green, red, orange, seashell and moccasin are great choices to go with gray. So choose furniture with these colors to be consistent with the wall color and other decors.

3. Curtains in bright colors. A drape of color will do lots of good to your gray walls. So go with those bold, bright color curtains and window shades.

4. Ornamental items. Ornamental items like decorative ottomans, lamps and tapestries can change the atmosphere of a gray bedroom if they are colorful, bright and bold. But don’t add many colors to your bedroom. Otherwise your bedroom will be too dazzling, which won’t help you fall asleep quickly.
