A Day in Gray

Cheetah10

I have a HUGE obsession with the color gray…literally, an obsession.  The entire inside of my house is gray and I even just bought gray pumpkins for Fall. So I knew when I saw this gray leopard print sweater I had to buy it! Not only is this sweater seriously so comfortable but it is on sale for under $20! It is perfect for a casual day or even dressed up with heels. I am currently living in these jeans and boots which I love, and this sweater vest is perfect for a Fall day to warm you up without having to wear a heavy jacket. To top off this outfit I wore this chain necklace studded with gray stones that you can mix and match with multiple outfits.

Going… Going… Gone?

While perusing on my phone last night, I found LOTS of items I have blogged about available AND on sale!  I am a huge fan of numerous sites that offer “events” lasting 5-7 days with great deals on home products galore.   One of my absolute favorites is Joss & Main.  The downside is that they are only listed for a short time and they go FAST!  So, here’s my great finds this week!

NOTE: Some of these events expire tonight!

Home Sweet Home

This quite possibly may qualify as one of my least colorful and most “mild” design posts to date.  However, it’s a great visual for the oh so popular grey paint colors.  Over the summer, I chose all of the finishes and colors for a family member’s new home being built close by.  She wanted something fresh and modern yet keeping with the traditional Craftsman style…

EXTERIOR

For the siding, I chose Dovetail by Sherwin Williams which is a really beautiful cool gray with slight blue undertones.  The trim and vinyl soffets are Linen.  I wanted to create an eye catching contrast between the siding and the stone so I chose a very warm colored stone called Pennsylvania by Centurion.  The stone is a “ledge” style which gives it a more rustic look.  This contrast between the cool siding and the warm stone is striking.  For the door, I wanted to have some fun and add my signature pop of color so I chose Waterscape by Sherwin Williams.

House 22

House 33

INTERIOR

For the interior of the home, I chose to stay with the same color scheme for a unified look and a very neutral palette.  Once again, the contrast between the grey walls and the white trim gives it a very fresh look and feel.  All paint colors listed below…

As I talked about in my Welcome Home post several weeks ago, in December 2013 we found our dream home.  The problem was that my head saw our dream home yet our eyes did not.  After having described what we were looking for in mega detail to our realtor and looking at tons of homes in a thirty mile radius, I’m pretty sure she thought I’d lost it when I fell in love with this one.  Beautiful property- check, privacy- check, good “bones”- check, fresh/clean/my style/move in ready- ummmm no.  Honestly, I think that’s what I loved most.  The fact that we could renovate and make it our own little wonderland.  As far as the existing color scheme, I’m pretty sure fall threw up in our house.  The walls were every shade of burnt amber, pumpkin, spice, forest green, apple red and everything in between.  So first things first, PAINT!

IN PROGRESS

The overall look I had in mind was “Hotel Chic”.  We have quite a few friends and family who stay over often so I really wanted a room that felt fresh, clean and chic.  Think checking into the W Hotel in Atlanta for a night, open the door to Room #345 and voila!

I chose the same paint color we have throughout the home for the main walls in the room.  Make sure and read “Ponder-ing Your Wall Color?” before you go and buy this paint color.  No seriously, read it.  All of the paint colors for this room are listed below.  Anyways, I wanted a neutral color on the walls and then a pop of fun on the accent wall.   I also have a love affair with black ceilings.  It is so chic and fun plus it adds height to a room and a modern elegance that I just love!  For that pop of fun, I found this amazing gold wallpaper called Petal Pusher (Gold) from Hygge & West.  We have teamed up with Hygge & West to offer all of our readers a discount!

THE DETAILS

The room was painted, the wallpaper complete and now it was time for the best part…  all the details.  First I found this GORGEOUS Chandelier in a silver leaf finish with gold accents that accentuated the gold wallpaper just perfectly.  I then found a beautiful cool grey velvet that has the same undertones as the ceiling paint color for the ottoman and headboard.  I had these pieces custom made for the room.  There is just something about tufted headboards that make my glamorous alter ego smile.

Next up was the bedding and drapery.  Since the walls and ceiling were busy and I wanted a very fresh look, I chose simple white window treatments, as well as a white quilt and shams.   This also gave me a good white canvas to add a pop of color and print with the pillows.  You know how I LOVE a good pop of color!
