Modern Gray Interiors

Modern gray interiors sometimes get a bad rap as being cold, sterile and institutional.  No doubt some people are drawn to that steely gray with undertones of blue, but I’m not one who will ever be comfortable in a residential space that may be even remotely reminiscent of my 7th grade gym.   You don’t have to look far into my former blog posts to know that I actually love designing with grays, but I blend layers of gray tones, starting with something a little more complex and warm,  and then inviting shades of browns and tans to pepper the scene.  The result is much more dimensional and inviting.

The thing I like most about this color palette is that it is equally gorgeous in a very contemporary space, a shabby chic cottage, or a traditional living room.  And while most people assume the colors of nature to be greens, yellows and reds,  grays and tans are all around us in the natural world.
