I am personally in LOVE with the color combo of grey and white right now. It's not as harsh as black and white, and it can be very chic. I think that this combination could work for just about any room in the house, but today I've looked at it for your living room/ den.
This board is slightly more feminine, using furniture with thin legs & curvy forms, but I don't think that when put together with everything else that it would necessarily be a feminine room. A chunky coffee table or end table could offset the delicate furniture very nicely.
I have also added a couple modern colors to the mix to make the room more "now" than just the classic grey and white. I've added an eggplant purple and a yellow gold color to the mix. Keep in mind that the addition of "yellow gold" does not prevent you from mixing in a few silver pieces, as evident in the chandelier shown on the board.

In this situation, I think that you would do best with a soft grey wall and a slightly off-white trim color combo. You could add a wonderful eggplant chaise, or pair of footstools to throw in more color & accent with dark wood (even as dark as black) for the coffee table, television stand, etc.
I love this combo & would really love to use this in my house... if I just had an extra room....
