My (Not So) New Favorite Color

I guess I’ll make it official and admit my obsession with grey. The love affair has been brewing for a while. I love it in interior design and I love it in floral design…

I’ve always been drawn to the grey tones of dusty miller, certain succulents and brunia berries so it just thrills me to see floral designers using them in fashion-forward arrangements and bouquets.

Last summer I painted the outside of my house grey…my bathroom is grey (and turquoise)…my new sheets are crisp white cotton with slate trim…our TV room sofa is a graphite leather sectional…and from the looks of these pictures, I’m destined for a greyish kitchen!

Anyone else feel the love for grey?

love those kitchens. I'm obsessed lately with dark grey wall color.

Thanks for sharing! Never thought much about grey colour but am totally rethinking about it now! Also notice your blog background is in grey :) But I am blaming you if I start an addiction for interior design pics and blogs..

um.. YES! Don't post things this beautiful--it makes me hate my home.
