'dior gray'





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.....

I don't know what it is, but it is "the perfect gray".

I'm betting that he mixes another color in with the stock color.
And yes, I'll be tuning in to see what he has to say. Loved him on Oprah. {Matter of fact, I only tivo-ed her show in the last few years in JUST IN CASE Nate was doing one of his make-over shows!} Great rooms, full of Nate. B. influence!

A perfectly warm gray that works with cool tones as well. I love it. Wish I knew his secret....

Rhetorical question of the day - Why do I love staggered stripe rugs so?

Can not wait for that show! Maybe he cuts the paint by 1/3 with white?

Great gray! I prefer a bit deeper, but I like this one! That fur throw reminds me also of my fave designer, Ryan Korban!

That rug is a Nate Berkus signature. SEXY. My favorite thing is that little brown chair in the bedroom corner. Ive seen it before but I cant remember where.... Restoration or something? I dont know...
