Still spot

Posted on Tue, 10 Jul 2012 by midcenturyjo

I’m lost in the London listings on onefinestay. “A fresh alternative to a hotel for a short stays, live like a local without compromising on service and comfort.” May be a slogan but it seems to be true. Look at this oasis in the bustling city. Love the grey walls (the listing says duck egg blue but my monitor is definitely reading more grey… I’m fantasising about that blue though), the pared back furnishings, a scattering of vintage and the historic details. Simplicity and style. So refreshing. Excuse me while I pop over to Beresford Terrace for a few days stay. I really need to straighten that sofa cushion ;)<

Neutral perfection

Posted on Fri, 9 Apr 2010 by KiM

When I found the following home on AT Casa my heart just melted. I am craving neutrals these days and this home REALLY does it for me. Beautiful natural fabrics, everything bathed in whites and greys, all giving an air of romanticism and serenity. *SIGH* It’s PERFECT. (Photos by Andrea Martiradonna)

More black and white (and grey and lavender)

The other day a reader named Bo sent us this link to a black and white home on a Swedish real estate site. I thought it was a cool pad, but then while perusing the site I came across this home that really got me going. I LOVE the location, the open layout, the fresh colour scheme, the whitewashed wide plank hardwood, the grey trim, the black Smeg, the viewwwwww…….(thx Bo!)

Grey living room

Andrea of for me, for you emailed with a contribution to my grey post from the other day. Check out this glimpse into her home, complete with some mid-century classics THAT SHE FOUND ON CRAIGSLIST FOR $170 (FOR BOTH CHAIRS!!!). Everyone could use a little Cherner and Saarinen in their lives don’t you think?? (Thanks Andrea!)

Grey, my favourite neutral

Posted on Tue, 20 Nov 2007 by KiM

Update: Our friend Drey of bijou kaleidoscope just introduced me to the grey living room of Kim from Four Beds Two Baths, as seen above. LOVE IT! I always loved a teak credenza against a grey wall. Thanks Drey and kudos Kim!

My sister was talking to her neighbour the other day about grey walls. Her neighbour said grey walls were cold and depressing. I SOOOOO disagree with her, and so much so that I had to post some photos of grey rooms to prove her wrong. I LOVE grey, but I admit, choosing a warm grey can be difficult. But I think you can do alot with furnishings in a room with grey walls. No matter what the shade, as long as you throw in lots of creams and nice plush fabrics (faux furs in particular), or some pops of colour, like orange or yellow (both of which I adore with grey), you can’t go wrong. To me, if a neutral is what you’re after, think about using grey instead of white. Didn’t you know grey is the new white? 😉
