Can you detect the Nate Berkus influence here? This is the apartment of Lauren Buxbaum, one of Nate's design assistants. The walls are no doubt painted the 'dior gray' that Nate is so fond of. It's inspiration originated from the light gray color Christian Dior used in his dressing rooms.
I love this light and water-like color. It's beautiful with that pumpkin pie color that I like (on the sofa in the living room and chair in the bedroom).
Now, babies, all we gotta do is get this color! Benjamin Moore has a Dior Gray -2133-40 but it seems to be much darker. Does anyone have Nate's secret gray? Maybe he'll spill the beans on The Nate Berkus Show coming this fall.....
