Jo Simmons added this to Colour: How to Layer Tones of Grey for Depth and Harmony16 Jan 2015

Contrast light and darkBy using the same colour, but in both its palest and deepest incarnations, you can create a rich, contrasting look that is still harmonious and coordinated. Here, grey is used throughout, but the woodwork sports a deep, rich version, while the walls and soft furnishings are far paler.

Be a friend to fabric. Upholstery fabric doesn’t need to be very light to stand out; it just needs to be set against an even darker background for contrast. The neutrality and scale of the delicate gray-on-gray pattern on this settee may have faded into the background of a beige or light gray wall. Do a piece like this honor by setting it against a dark backdrop where it can become the star of the room.
