grey on the brain

8.26.2009

My dear friend, Marianne, introduced me to the color grey. At first I wasn't so sure... and now I've become a little obsessed. I'm still on my white kick- but I love the gray seen in these photos. And I'm liking all shades of it- both warm and cool, light and dark.

Moving on from interiors to my closet. The new fall J.Crew catalog arrived in my mailbox yesterday. I tried to make myself throw it away without looking at it since I am on a shopping hiatus. But I just couldn't do it. I've added these two to my wish list (btw, I think Santa Claus reads my blog):

Kelcey Suede Ballet Flats

And look at this pretty shade of grey polish on Angela's toes. It's OPI Recycle. That will be something that I can add into my fall wardrobe that won't break the bank!

FANTASTIC images- especially the bedroom midway through. I love these! I think a little gray on the wall is even better than all white- soothing but still interesting!

I am a huge fan of gray! These pictures are great and the room with the chandalier is one of my FAVORITES. I will need to replicate when I can design my own bedroom!

When I got my first apartment I splurged on gray and white stripped bedding from Calvin Klein. It is a classic look and I probably should have held on to that comforter.

Love the rooms and your pedicure!

I really like these images, especially the dining room.

I got the JCrew catagloue last night and I threw it away before looking at it. But don't be fooled, I'm spending money elsewhere. I just couldn't add JCrew to the list.

I love the color grey! It is so chic and goes with everything. We recently did a post on grey interiors and getting to see other grey interiors is so fun! Thanks for the collection of photos!

I used to HATE grey, but now I think it's the most restful color. I'm so partial to greige. Redoing every room in the house in light greige (BM 1528 -- Early Morning Mist). Cheers (love your blog)!

Love it, love the whole post. I really love the white curtains against the grey wall and the J. Crew purse. I had a wonderful time today! We will have to do it again soon!

Renae said...

I like the gray as well...am thinking about gray walls and white linen for my bedroom!
Good thing I don't get J Crew!

Grey is absolutely my favorite color - the pics you found are great. I'm loving the grey accessories - it's such a good neutral but feels a little fresher than wearing black.

that gray bag is divine!

Michelle said...

I really love gray...especially paired with the crisp whites in a bedroom, like you have shown...also, our light here in Vancouver works well with it.

Best,
Michelle

I'm late to completely embrace gray too, but I'm really starting to fall in love with it. Love, love that bedroom. And the toes!

There is nothing better than a bedroom done in white and grey.
