Grey

Or is it...gray? The grammar experts tell me it's either.

It was while shopping for towels that I first realized I have a new obsession with the color grey. We were long overdue for some new master bath towels so I decided to stop into my favorite Homegoods store. For several minutes, I stood in the grey towel section choosing a small variety of towels...excited to get them home. As I was walking away I realized....my bathroom is not grey. It's tan and blue!

I blame it on feeling overly tired, all the time lately. That moment in Homegoods is when I realized I have a grey obsession, and I also have an obvious mental block as to which colors are actually in my home. And so I walked around our house taking a true inventory of my grey obsession.....

 The same day I towel shopped I also completed a couple of quick projects. One was purchasing {grey}scrapbook paper and putting them in white frames(no clue where we will hang them).
 I used the same {grey} paper to cover the letters above. After I applied the letters to the wall I stood back and once again realized....our kitchen is mostly tan/beige.
 The tiles sort of look grey, but in person they are all beige or tan.
 
 Most of the accents I have around are grey....bags, containers, etc.

 That same shopping day I found these {grey}rolls of wrapping paper. I had the idea that I will line the back of our china hutch with the paper. Thankfully, we had just painted our dining room grey.

Does grey match tan? It wouldn't be my first choice of colors to combine, but it's growing on me. Maybe grey is the new white?

When I think of grey, it usually profiles alongside a bright colour (in my head.... and in my closet, now that I'm thinking about it).

I have no idea if it works with tan or not, but I'm sure someone with a bit more knowledge will come along soon. :-)

I do love the grey letters against the (sea green?) wall though...

I agree, Ruth....bright colors with grey works so well.I love grey and yellow together. :)

Funny, I was just thinking to myself yesterday....I don't have any grey in the house. I decided it's because I always end up leaning toward blues. I think it's a mood thing with me. I love grey decor with bold colors. Jeff Lewis always used it so perfectly. Xo friend!
