Can gray walls go with teal, cream and warm tones (beige, espresso brown furnishings?)

Want gray living room walls to add color and cool down all the beige and brown I have, but I have pale teal/gray and cream on other walls in an open plan on the main floor. I won't be re-doing the other walls. Can a shade of gray work with this color palette?

Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter to the rescue! It is an amazing color that changes with whatever it is paired with. Check it out I think this might just do the trick. I like the colors you have. :D

Some options... Looking at lighter-to-medium shades of gray and greige. (Please excuse my husband's hands!)

I think a broken finish (ie faux finish as in ragging, etc) would look great. THen you could tie in a lot of the colors and it would also look quite soft. If you want to really cool things down, why not go stronger in a teal or shade of blue green, like the pictures in the last post. That would look smashing!

I was going to vote for revere pewter as well! I am curious what the sherwin Williams equivalent is. I am sure you could google it. Edgecomb gray would be a bit lighter but equally versatile.

If you change out those lamp shades to some more modern drum shades you would have a completely updated look.
