Gray – stone, elephant, dove, Dior, asphalt, slate, silver, steel, cement, anthracite, smoke, pearl, dust, driftwood, putty, charcoal. All these words are used to describe one of my favorite colors. It can be moody and calming. Grays are another way to go neutral depending on what you pair with them. Below are some of my favorite fall gray rooms.
A room designed by Mary McDonald for the Greystone Estate show house.
Thom Felicia designed the above bedroom.
Silver Gracie wallpaper in a dining room by Andrew Raquet.
Both rooms above are in Monique Lhuilier’s home featured in Elle Decor.

Pops of gray:
The above room by Todd Romano works with tans, caramels,a nd ivories with a nice pop of deep charcoal grey on two club chairs.
