CRAZY FOR COLOR

ADD A LITTLE DRAMA
 
In decorating its not the objects as much as the contrasts that make a room interesting.  
There are a million and one ways to decorate a room, but unless you have a little drama - a 
strong contrast - it can still be boring.

COLOR CHALLENGED


PERSONAL COLOR PALETTES

Source
Are you a green person or a blue person? 
 Do you like neutrals or whites? 
Do reds make you happy? 
Do you love pink?

Color is personal -  It is individual
A look in your closet will reveal colors
 you know you look your best in
and colors that make you feel good.

Why should decorating your home be any different?

WARM GREY



SO MANY GREYS
I read that this particular hue is spelled G-R-A-Y in America and G-R-E-Y in the UK.    Looking at this manor house, I can see so many shades of gray in the stonework - warm griege, light gray, medium, charcoal and even a little bluish or greenish tint now and then - they all look perfectly beautiful together.

CHARCOAL GRAY MASTER SUITE


LISA'S BEAUTIFUL BEDROOM SUITE

I am way behind on posting on the projects I currently have in the works, but here are some photos to catch you up on Lisa's Master Suite....

I posted about it first here:

We chose a palette of charcoal gray, white, pale gray and beige with deep dark woods - a very soothing, serene color scheme.

UNFORGETABLE GRAY


MORE QUESTIONS AND MORE ANSWERS....

I don't want to seem like a broken record because I recommend gray so often.  It may seem I am stuck on one color, but I'm actually not.   Gray is so versatile - nearly every color has a gray version.
