GET THE LOOK :: HEAD-TO-TOE GREY

the-the-look-head-to-toe-grey

First Birkenstocks, now endless layers of grey? Seattle sure seems to be right on trend these days, doesn’t it? But when you actually live in the grey (or with the guys who are still wearing socks with their birks) the trend doesn’t always seem quite as appealing. However – being a black-and-white girl myself, I happen to […]

    I thought it was silly when I heard grey was going to be a huge fall trend, but now I’ve found my closet full of it. I ADORE that chunky grey knit in the second photo.

ROOM OF THE WEEK 5.27

4643652190_4966646055

The boy and I have been talking about moving this summer, and the very idea has me dreaming of new decor for our living room… This room just found itself in first place for inspiration. I know what some of you are thinking… this is on the verge of boring. But, actually, it’s just ripe […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK 3.11

Apologies for the delayed room today! I thought I had the post all scheduled to go, but it never went. However, I do believe that this one was very worth the wait!When I initially started collecting inspiration for my bedroom last summer, I was convinced I wanted to do shades of grey and coral… what […]

    BEAUTIFUL! How much do you want to cuddle up with those throw pillows. This space is the perfect balance of comfort and sophistication.
    Love it!

    This is truly a gorgeous room, what I wouldn't give for those giant glamorous french doors! They are amazing :)

    Now that's a room I can see myself living in. What a fabulous coffee table—droooool. Love the feature wall colour too. Love it all.

    I so agree with you…really random selection of furniture but it works really really well. I too question that light fixture over stove top … but am so in love with that soft blue under the sheet of plexiglass.
    Nice post!

    Beautiful space! I so badly wish I could peak behind the glass wall and see the hidden part of the space. Perhaps the home for all the cabinets/kitchen stuff that doesn't look quite so pretty? Or maybe an office area? Dying to know! Marija

    Soooo worth the wait!
    Fantastic light streaming thru those windows! Love the back splash in the kitchen for a pop of color. All the wood accents, the few pops of color and great textures, make this white room warm and cozy.
    Great find!!

    I think the "lamp" in the kitchen might actually be an extractor fan. If so I think that they are making some really lovely fans these days. If it is just a lamp then I think it looks a little odd.

    I absolutely LOVE the color scheme and that huge mirror is a fabulous focal point. I'm not crazy about the touches of warm-colored wood, i.e. the two occasional chairs, the wooden table, the chess pieces. Maybe its just not quite the right finish or something… But overall, an inspiring image!

    loving like 80% of the room, especially those throw pillows and the chess pieces! the grey/coral ottomans are kinda throwing me off though…I would have done them in a matching fabric, or maybe just one corla-upholstered bench?

    thanks for sharing (and hope all is great with you!)

ROOM OF THE WEEK 2.25

This week’s room is going to be a little special… not because it’s ultra fabulous or extraordinary, but because it’s mine… all mine!Well, let me rephrase that.. it’s ours. Me and the boy’s. We started with beige walls and a mattress on the floor and made it this! A peaceful little haven (especially compared to […]

    Lovely lovely lovely! I definitely needed some inspiration- I've got a bedroom makeover in the works.

    Is that a little gold leaf above the window? I love the little touch of shimmer up there- very unexpected.

    This is gorgeous. Our master bedroom is currently a shade of mocha which is nice but I'm already for a change (we only moved in last August).

    Charcoal is the way to go, I think. I'm going to email you :)

    So so lovely! I wish my bedroom looked just like this. I don't have the energy to paint a rental just to repaint when we leave, but perhaps I could incorporate some of your great choices into my home, specifically the lamps! Could you share where they're from (both silver and glass)?

    Follow up for the ladies who've asked… the paint color is Valspar Lava Stone, the gold piece above the window is a four-leaf clover, I used a simple spray paint for the knobs in 'brass' (much better than gold), the lamps are pier1, and the 'for like ever' poster in gold (yes, gold!) and cream was a limited edition run that they did years ago… I don't believe it's available anymore. Thank you all for your wonderful comments!!

    I also love that paint color – tried to get that exact look years ago and ended up with a periwinkle! Dig that lamp on the dresser as well. Lovely room, nice work.

    Cass this is amazing! You did SUCH a great job. It's so serene and complete. I love that ikea dresser with brass knobs. All that white against the grey is perfect. The lamps are adorable, too. And the four leaf clover is the perfect detail touch.

    I'm really really impressed, but not surprised because after all it's YOU!

    Have a great weekend!

    I love this so much! I have a very similar grey in two of our bedrooms but I wasn't brave enough to do all walls, just one wall in each room. I loved it so much I did it in our kitchen too. Love that poster, another purchase I need to make! Love your style!!!

    Cass, it looks amazing. I love all of the small details you put into the room. I've been wanting to paint our apartment for a long time. It'll have to wait until after the wedding but you gave me inspiration to start thinking about it.

    Hope you have a fabulous {playful} weekend!

    It's lovely! Love that you went with a dark gray. I used something similar in my kitchen, the rest of the house lighter gray when I moved in my new place a few years back–have not regretted it. Looking forward to seeing more!
