Gray Matter

I've been working with a client in a modern space and have been spending a lot of time sourcing items for the black, white and gray colour scheme.  Gray has become my new black!  I've been loving everything I'm seeing in textiles, wallpaper, metallics, floors....

Gray is like a chameleon blending in with its surroundings while creating a calming backdrop for almost any colour to thrive.  It can be modern or traditional.

Gray can add a sense of patina a historic quality associated with nobility and elegance.

Gray can be organic .... allowing the natural essence of wood to take center stage.

Textures come alive in gray hues, velvet is inviting, silk is brilliant, wool is enveloping.

  Gray has overcome austere and ambiguous conotations to become a star in the design world,
I'm happy to have it in my creative repertoire.
