I made a collage using a blush, gray, black & white color scheme and mixed different styles for seating. Adding a throw of sorts to any caged seating makes it more comfortable and withstanding the use of sofa or dining sets adds interest. Try swapping out the head chairs of a formal dining area or adding a bench to one side of the table. Mixing tables or lamps can also keep a space eclectic. The goal in design is to make a space feel collected over time and not bought in one store.
I created a bathroom in a simple white and gray palette with silver and mercury glass accents. I opted for a decorative mirror versus a medicine cabinet. It’s one of the easiest way to update bathroom and something I blogged about here. I wanted shine and a hint of sparkle with classic designs like the floor mat which looks like marble. A pedestal vanity with space to hold some pretty decorative perfume bottles was a must. I can’t stand a pedestal sink that barely has room for anything other than soap. To continue with the feminine vibe I went for a beautiful lace shower curtain. The marble modern clock echos the mat and marble sink. I really like this space.

I find this hue a beautiful neutral that’s fresh and modern. It compliments any color and I think it will be something I won’t tire of. I can’t wait for the raspberry and plum tones of my bedroom decor to stand out against a charcoal gray backdrop. What do you think?
Have you used this in your home? If so, what colors does your gray contrast with?
I could live in any one of his designed homes and be happy with life. The homes have comfortable looking seating that you want to lounge on but the spaces aren’t overwhelmed with things. It appears the choices of decor were carefully selected leaving a very clean look…
The molding is beautiful and gives so much character to the home. Love the arched entry. But with modern furniture, it feels fresh and not dated in time. I know a lot of people frown upon painting wood but I would totally do it too. To me, I appreciate the details more when painted white or black.
