    Nothing gives your bedroom more sophisticated serenity than a palette featuring beautiful gray hues. Take notes from these soothing sanctuaries to create your own dreamy space.

    Walls in "Silver Cufflink" by Ralph Lauren give this bedroom a luxe, glamorous feel that's embellished with piles of soft bedding and pillows. Liberal doses of white on fabrics and wainscoting balance the dramatic grays.

    Upholstered white wall panels stand out beautifully against gray walls in this spacious sanctuary. Juxtaposed against the espresso-hue wood floors and bed, the gray and white gains appealing drama. Walls are painted in the urbane "Chelsea Gray" from Benjamin Moore.

    Feminine Mystique

    Gray can be considered a masculine color, but when teamed with white and a hint of blush pink, it goes just a bit girly. Curves on the svelte iron canopy bed and sumptuous fur on the bench play up the sexy vibe. Walls are "Anew Gray" by Sherwin-Williams, artfully enhanced by hand-chalked tree silhouettes, covered by a protective glaze.

    Calm on the Horizon

    Pale gray walls wrap this master bedroom in elegance and tranquillity. Darker gray on the bench, headboard, bedding, and rug bring depth to the intriguingly layered palette, which is complemented by white and cream. Want the wall color? It's Horizon OC-53 by Benjamin Moore.

    Enchanting Escape

    Shimmery sateen bedding and draping bed curtains give this neutral bedroom plenty of romance—and infuse just the right energy into peaceful layers of gray and white. The soaring bed curtains also build height, playing off the eye-catching chandelier. Its dark tones echo the coffee-color bed frame and balance the room's bright whites.

    Layered in Luxury

    Gray-and-white bed linens and a tufted headboard induge the senses with soft textures and intriguing patterns. The metal canopy bed introduces more gray—but this time in shimmery metallic tones. The black-and-white Art Deco bedside cabinet contrasts beautifully with the canopy sheers. Count on black to always lend a rich, grounding note to a gray-and-white scheme.

    Pattern Play

    Gray, white, and a touch of cream team up in this elegant bedroom. Luxurious linens dress the early-20th-century four-poster, which features a visually striking fretwork headboard and glimmering silver-leaf finish. Deep-gray wool sateen drapery panels decorated with geometric borders and backed by ivory shades frame matching bedside tables.

    Touch of Gray

    White rises to the starring role in this airy master bedroom, while gray plays a smaller but still vital part. The winter white on walls and fabrics is warmed by classic pearl gray on pillows, chair upholstery, and a border on the bed curtains. White with clean undertones serves as the perfect backdrop for wood tones. Here, it lets an antique writing desk and mirror frame shine.

    Cocconed in Comfort

    A marble-like patterned fabric wraps this bed in textural gray and white, and sets the palette for the entire room. Nickle-gray curtains behind the bed soften the space, as do an abundance of pillows and linens in coordinating hues. A framed sketch above the bed continues the graphic look, while an antique demilune table injects contrasting ornate curves.

    Rock the Block

    Color-blocking is a great way to bring a contemporary touch to a classic room—and if you love neutrals, blocks of gray and white can't be beat. Here, the hues dress draperies and bedding in soft sophistication. An upholstered headboard and rustic bench add even more layers of texture.

    Color Balance

    Gray and white are equal partners in this airy bedroom, where "Whale Gray" blocks complement a libel dose of "China White." (Both colors are from Benjamin Moore.) Patterns and textures on the bed coverings, moldings, and even the herringbone floor layer in extra interest.

    Keep Calm—and Classic

    "Ashley Gray" by Benjamin Moore, a muted gray with olive undertones, covers the walls in this tasteful master bedroom, where a luxe four-poster in dark, dramatic tones takes center stage. Pillow coverings play off the hue of the bedposts, while white on moldings and window muntins keeps the vibe airy.
