Gray and Brown Home Design Inspiration Board

Not sure if my mind is craving constant stimulation or if I’m just not boring, but living in a monochromatic space doesn’t juice me up.  They’re absolutely gorgeous when well designed but it’s not what I want surrounding me in my own home.  I do love a beautiful neutral space but I like the dynamics of contrast and the way depth of color creates shadows and highlights.

This gray and brown home design inspiration board illustrates how beautifully you can create a neutral color palette with opposing hues that take advantage of those visual highs and lows, keeping us interested and wanting to revisit.
