Color Fun Friday! Gray is the New Black!


Piet Mondrian's Gray Tree

Gray is timeless, practical and solid.  It mixes well with any color. Gray can have a cooling effect when placed next to other more vibrant colors. It also has a stabilizing effect, making vibrant colors stand out while muting their vibration. Use gray as a cooling background for any space and then infuse pops of color throughout. Any color will work with this great neutral. It’s currently very trendy…check out the great spaces below.


I really like the use of a neutral palette is this living room. The red accents are a  great compliment the space.  I’m really diggin’ that lamp!




This living room has a really nice calm vibe. The accents bring in some liveliness and the wood furniture brings in warmth.




The white looks extra bright and clean against the all gray backdrop. I’m loving that detail on the ceiling.




This living room has several different tones of gray throughout. It has a classy yet relaxed vibe.  That tree stump is a great looking piece!




This modern space looks great with the stone faced fireplace as its focal point. I don’t think gold would of been my go-to for a accent in this space, but I think it gives the room some warmth.



This room feels so relaxing! I can see myself gettin’ cozy in this bed. Layers of gray in different shades and textures. Oh la la!




This wallpaper is gorgeous! Enough said!





I like how this gray wall frames the lighter colored bathroom beyond it.  I love the brass details and the clawfoot tub in the bathroom too!




The gray sofa and and area rug stand out against the white backdrop. The awesome raw-edged dining table gives the open space the warmth it needs.




I just love this idea! The back panel of the kitchen island is painted with a gray chalkboard paint. So clever!  I’ve always loved the wood/industrial look. Works well in this kitchen!




Do you have any great ideas for gray spaces? Do tell!

Color Fun Friday! Downtown Brown!


Brown is a warm and safe color. We all have a desire to have natural things around us. Brown is often the color we call wood or timber, it is grainy and fundamentally earthy. Because it is natural it goes with almost any color which makes it great for use in our interior spaces.


I am in love with graphic print wallpaper.  Such a cool retro vibe.



Um. Can I live here please? I’d settle for a visit…you don’t get more “one with nature” than this.  All the warm tones and textures are just amazing. And the view! To die for…



This one also has a great view!  The warmth from all the surrounding wood on the floors, walls and ceiling makes this space very inviting.




This feels super rich with the use of the chocolate brown walls and dark wood floors. I like the stark contrast of the white lines and lamps.




I can see this space in a beach side property. Like the feel of all the different textures and the olive-y green wall. The wall color works really well with the brown/neutral palette.




This office space has a very natural earthy feeling to it. It definitely feels more on the masculine side. I bet most women wished their mans “man cave” looked like this.




The space feels lux to me.  I really dig the blue accents. They compliment the brown palette beautifully. Catch a glimpse of the Saarinen table? Remember my crush?




This screams fun…the contrast of the white really makes it pop. It is a mix of quirky and sophisticated. I like the addition of the bright pink for that “pop” of color.




Orange is prob one of my fav combos with brown.  Add in a Ikat print pillow and I’m sold.  I like the mix of prints in this space.



This is a great dining space.  Again, there’s a nice mix of neutral colored textures.  I just love the brown/white chevron print covered dining chairs.





I’ve always been a fan of a neutral palette for any space. Especially with browns/beige’s.  It is so easy to introduce pops of color when you have a neutral canvas. What color is your favorite space?
