monday color combo

how 'bout this gorgeousness this morning? i have gathered (humbly so) the yummiest gray and white decor the interwebs has to offer. i believe everyone needs a little gray and white in their home. AND!!! you can throw any color in the mix and it still looks good. so go ahead all you white wall lovers (that would be me), throw some charcoal up on the walls and behold it's awesomeness and then pat yourself on the back for being so brave. you won't be sorry.

i love grey..not the light grey or battleship grey, but a lovely charcoal grey...but my husband is bemoaning that it's the new chocolate brown (ugh)...i fear he may be right. which also means, no pretty grey walls for me =( i wonder if these photos could change his mind?

We are redoing our home, one room at a slow-ass time. I can't commit to any one color because I love them all, but I constantly lean towards some sort of grey. Thanks for the inspiring pics. Methinks that's the way to go. In one of the above comments, it was mentioned that grey is becoming the new chocolate brown. Does that mean choc. brown is out of style? That was a color I was thinking about for the master bedroom (a la P.S. I Love You.) Say it ain't so!

I just got grey paint for the BF's office, I really hope he gives it the OK and lets me go for it :)

I know I always say this, "beautiful and great combo", but this one is definitely, hands-down my all-time favorite! I'm a grey and white girl. Yes, I admit it, I've come clean! Colors be-gone, give me my grey and white now and always.

P.S. Where did you find the beyond cool grey and white bean bag like seats? I need one for my lil' crumb!

I LOVE, like absolutely LOVE this palette that you have put together :) I never tire of gray and it's ability to calm and look so peaceful with nearly any color, artwork, and pattern.

I was also wondering about those seats, as well - they look so comfy!!
