monday color combo

happy monday readers. i love gray. you do too, i know cuz you have told me. i have color combo'd it many, many times. here, here and here. oh and here. this combo of RED and gray boders on too 80's to be good. but..BUT it can be pretty. as we have seen in previous posts gray can pretty much rock any color. and with red i think the gray tempers it. and on the flip side of that red can bring some life to the coldness of an all gray room.

I usually steer away from red and grey and but this makes me rethink things.

Are you going to write about the Fangtonio Project that aired last night?! I hope so!

I love that red velvet chair with the grey pillows, and your cobweb photograph--stunning! BTW, file this one under unintended consequences... I think I told you that I watched every one of those Design Turd episodes in order to better appreciate the talent that is Jenny. What I neglected to mention is that my boyfriend also sat in on these and developed an affection for Antonio. Yes. Really. Last night, after having completed the usual Sunday night TV, he flips the channel to HGTV specifically so that he can watch Antonio's show (and possibly also to make me grind my teeth). A monster is born!

Red has never been one of my favorite colors, but you definitely made it pop with the grey!

My favorite color combo!! I am doing it in my living room based on a vintage lamp I spray-painted red and how fabulous it looked against my grey walls. Hotness!!

Yup, one of my favorite gray combos! That third photos is what started it for me.
