It's the new white


It's official! Gray, is the NEW white! And here is another perfect example of it used beautifully by Carrier and Company. Design team Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller have pulled together an inviting palette with grays, bleached wood, natural steel and poppy. In the living space open to the kitchen area, they paired gray with icey blue. One might think it would come across a little too industrial. But this home has all the industrial elements paired with soft touches, to create a comfortable balance. The Wrought Iron Coffee table with distressed would top says, "eat dinner here" You know the gray is dark enough to withstand a little abuse. This home could be casually elegant with slipcovered cream linen everywhere, but instead gray creates the exact same effect with 1/2 the maintenance. The formal dining room does what is should - highlights a beautifully crafted table and set of chairs. It's a little minimalist, but something tells me the view behind the windows and doors will add to the ambiance.

  4. I have a pair of sunglasses with gray lenses and I love the way everything that is white has a gray-ish cast over it. Even on the sunniest of days, it sort of reminds me that clouds do have silver linings. I love that open kitchen lounge room.

  5. I love grey :-) We have a lot of grey in our house, including the hallway, which is a great light grey (Pratt & Lambert Windham).

    I think grey is so pretty and soothing. And it works well with so many other colours.
