I have had a grey obsession for many years now. In architecture school, you learn that architects all wear black. While this is probably 90% true, and I definitely own key black architectural attire, I often dress in all grey. Additionally, my house is about 90% grey, hence the instagram photo that may have led you to this post. But I recognize that I am not alone in this grey obsession. Researching a variety of interiors these days, the color grey is abound, and it looks fabulous! Whereas many buildings have long been grey, thanks to concrete, limestone, and steel being key exterior architectural materials.
The thing about grey as an interior design element is that you can use just about any color as an accent and it will be perfect every time! That's why I am a huge advocate for selecting grey major pieces, such as sofas, chairs, even rugs. Then whenever you need a style change, you can change out pillows, arts, and accessories as you wish. Of course, in my own home, my pillows and accessories are all mostly grey too. But, hey, I already let you know that I'm obsessed!
I should also point out that yes, I spell it with an "e" GREY... Most Americans spell it GRAY. I think it's much prettier with the "e," and I feel that it makes it that much more mine.
Here's my round up of some stunning greys that I think are doing a great job at doing what they do:
1. A dark grey wall helps makes the white art, linens, and Louis Poulsen lamp pop.
3. A medium-light grey linen sofa will never go out of style. How awesome is that large scale ombre art?
4. A lovely grey, muted bathroom is the perfect place to relax in the tub/shower after a long, hard workout.
5. An all exposed concrete building is more than alright with me. It's one of my favorite things!
