inspiration :: rooms of gray
Wednesday, March 23, 2011 by {darlene}

I am thinking about gray walls for our living room.
Here are a series of rooms that are simply beautiful, and inspire me to go gray:

this photo reminds me of the bare whites and grays and browns of winter.

the rich gray adds the contrast of earthy modern to the illustrious and stately architecture.

I am adoring the antiqued pencil sketches that throw bright splashes of cream atop a deep, deep gray.

I love everything about the balance in this design. I feel a ditto coming on.

 I love this color. maybe too brown in reality, but, this may be the one… {color is Behr’s “squirrel”}

just a tic below black, this charcoal is nothing but pure drama.

I am continuing to notice my love for the combination of grays and browns. and these rooms certainly are amazing examples of that color combination.

I think I may have to go gray at fieldstone hill…

  • It's funny you talk of gray, because I just painted my bedroom Valspar's Mark Twain House Ombra Gray, and I love it!

    Check it out. http://thefleischhauers.blogspot.com/2011/03/bedroom-update.html

    By the way, I've never posted, but I love your blog! :)

  • oooh! perfect! i am planning on going gray here in my flamingo's nest!! i heart gray!i actually thought of having you approve my gray choice. i am going to change the "yellow" in my living room to a gray with maybe a hint of blue. why? because i love that color with accented orange…and it would blend in nice with my kitchen. or so i think. don't tell me if i'm wrong…lol

    I'm a big convert to gray. Some may say it's too cold but just look at the photos above. I beg to differ!!!

    Another good one, {dar}! (I'm feeling so special right about now…)

    Ha, my word verification was "cutlet." I just find that kind of funny.

    Martha Stewart would be proud – she loves gray.
