a restful combination...



I'm a push-over for art and for gray and this bedroom has both. Designer Charles Spada used BM Stonington Gray (HC-170) on the walls.

This has become what feels like the summer of the- bedroom- that-will-never-be, at our house. We are working on our master bedroom and are in the home stretch, so all of these pretty details are exactly the inspiration I need. How thoughtful of you to know! ;0). I really happen to love what's going on with the artwork in this serene space.

Thanks! -nelya

beautiful!! and thanks for telling us the name of the paint color. that was my first thought, "what color is that?!"
and the art arrangement is perfect.

I think that a home can never have too much art.

what a gorgeous room - I love the floor to ceiling framed art and the burnished gold colour of the frames adds some sophisticated warmth - so pretty! : )

ooh gray and gilt!

that furniture and lamp are too much!

Naomi@ThirteenandSouth said...

I like art above the bedside table. Yes its a bit obscured by a table lamp- but it makes for such a pretty vignette!

shari @ little blue deer said...

Lovely rooms, Donna! I am really liking white art with gold frames lately, it's a really chic alternative to typical black frames and matted art!

Sarah @ Maison Boheme said...

I love the vertical trio of framed art in the second photo. I never think of hanging something so low on the wall... but I love it here!

Fringe said...

Indeed. Restful and timeless. Fine, white bedding is always right.

Stacey said...

This bedroom = quick and deep slumber. Love it!

tinajo said...

Oh, right now I´d love to take a nap there - lovely room! :-)

the vintage wren said...

Lovely, I could totally take a nap there right about now.

Jane (the girl in the brick house) said...

So elegant and restrained - lovely!

Leigha said...

Oh, I adore that wall color. I wonder if it takes on the gold undertone of the accessories under incandescent light at night.
You might have to add this color to your post about gray paint...

sarah, flourish design + style said...

Agreed. The art in the first image, love the scale. xx

Julie Holloway said...

love that little ensemble next to the bed...the table, the lamp, the art. So pretty. Oh, and I meant to tell you one of my favorite grays: Orion Gray by Ralph Lauren Paints. Pretty dark...but dreamy! We used it in our last home on the kitchen island and in the guest bath. I also love Rustoleum's high gloss gray spray paint.

Grove House Design said...

Lovely, no doubt. What I really love, though, are the gold accents. Too many people are afraid to mix metals (gold and silver / gray) but I think it's fantastic. Gold weighs down the gray and stops the room from drifting off completely. And the gray lightens the gold. A perfect balancing act - ying and yang.

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Donna, I love the gold frames against the gray walls!

Mona Thompson said...

Your titles are always so descriptive. I love that bedroom. I'm about to crawl in myself and that one sure looks good. I really love the huge art.

Will @ Bright.Bazaar said...

So serene and calm! Nice find, Donna!
