A Gray Backdrop

From Russell Lewis and Gemma Ahern's fabulously eclectic London area apartment, via The New York Times...

Don't the colors in this home pop so dramatically against the slate gray walls? I am very tempted to replicate their living room color scheme in my master bedroom. My walls are already painted the right color, and I have the yellow armoire... all I need are some creamy, textured elements and one standout florescent pink accent. Like maybe this guy?

FYI, according to the article, the paint color is Farrow and Ball's "Drain Pipe."

Ooooh I love the pink and yellow against the dark gray. I have my dining room painted that color. Maybe I need to step it up a notch with some color like this room. So great!!!

Maybe not in a London flat, the city doesn't get much light to start with so the interiors are dark, but the color combo is ingenious and would look awesome in an appartment with ample daylight!

ahhh this is sooo me. my guest/dressing room is painted a similar gray and i'm in the process of revamping it up with splashes of color so good inspiration is always needed. you must get the pink pig!

i just painted my living room a moody grey and the ceiling a darker grey, looks stunning. i love how they have offset all of that grey with those punches of bright, vibrant color. it perks up the grey. great post. i found your blog through the deco detective's blog :)

Love that first pic! The color of the walls offsets that yellow pic perfectly!

I would think gray would be too dark but they've all added great pops of color.
