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.

Can’t Get Enough Emerald Green!

It’s the color of spring, growth, renewal……prosperity.   Physiologically emerald green helps our bodies relax and find equilibrium.  Psychologically we associate green with nature and we are more calm in its presence.   So it’s no wonder we feel so wonderful when we wrap ourselves and surround ourselves in green!

Funky Artistic Seating

I have a passion for seating.  My husband will attest to that.  He’s the guy that drags all of the extra chairs to the attic until I find the perfect home or fabric for them.  Seating is essential to comfort and function, and it creates a sense of welcome to visitors.  But it can also have another important role in interior design; that of artistic focal point.   Every room needs that little something that says WOW and for centuries chairs and settees have found their place in the history of design from as far back as the Greek Klysmos chair.

Today’s marketplace is bursting at the seams with daring seating from the eco-friendly to the minimalist to the extravagant and even the comical . . . . . .
