So much good stuff I don't know where to start. The blue/gray sofa, the giant white coffee table..the orange lamp..love it all!

The various shades of gray create comfort. I could so unwind in those rooms.

Will @ Bright.Bazaar said...

Love the grey walls and charcoal sofa. The bright orange lamp is sexy, too!

Naomi@ThirteenandSouth said...

nate berkus sure loves that black and white madeline weinrib rug! (and so do i)

How fab is that orange lamp against the muted gray setting!!

Privet and Holly said...

Ah, gray..... a perfect reflection of the rain outside my window, right now. I could use that orange lamp to brighten things up! All gorgeous images to ponder and dream about.

Thank you for this! I need it right now because now our walls are gray and I don't know what to do next! These are all gorgeous and inspiring!

Those rooms are heaven on earth!

Windlost said...

Hi Donna, thanks so much for dropping by!! I have not been blogging much lately or reading many blogs, so I am so thankful people are still dropping in on me. I often take a quick peek at your blog but have been bad about taking time to comment. You always post beautiful pictures, many of which speak to me - you have lovely taste indeed. Love all these pictures. I love when gray goes to blue - adore those slatey gray blues most of all!!

That first photo you posted I have a copy saved also - I looked and I had it cited as coming from the UK website House to Home....I once posted this room as I loved the symmetry but use of different mirrors etc. on either side.

Take care! xo Terri

OH MY GREY HEAVEN. I love grey. I love all those images and have a few of them in my design files.

Thanks for all the great eye candy.
Love your blog.

XOXO

Mona Thompson said...

Great stuff. How is it that a lot of the images I am most drawn to while following all of these blogs are nothing like my own home? What does that say about me? I have a beautiful new home that I just moved in to in January. I start second guessing myself as I see all these lovely images. then I walk through the rooms I have created and say to myself , but this is who "you" are. I've been thinking about this a lot lately. Not sure why I got off on all of that. Probably because I really enjoyed this post.
