benjamin moore's gray owl




Two different versions of the the Chicago apartment of Lauren Gold, design director for Nate Berkus Associates. The first one from several years ago, and the second from the current issue of Lonny.

The wall color in the second image is Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl OC-52.

Donna, We love to see different versions of the same space and how it evolves over time. The current version of this space is our favorite. Have a great day! Angela and Renee

So glad the mirror stayed! It is amazing and makes a statement in both rooms - totally love the new one, however!

I much prefer the second image! What a difference a lighter sofa makes. I prefer the painting and the rug isn't so bossy. gorgeous! :)

No. 2 - cosier! And I like that the b/w combo moved from the floor to the wall.

Hugs to you,

I love how she evolved the room.

There is the coolest new interior design store in our town and the colors are all in the cool family. Lots of gray!! Thought of you!

What a lovely change. The black/white floor in the old room would have put me in the nut ward. Amazing what only a few changes can make. xx's

Fun seeing these side by side. I had to read to know which was the updated. They are both beautiful.

I prefer the second design. Funny! Growing up my mum changed our house every two years as well. I had at least 8 different bathroom colours.
