I like these gray-painted, shaker style kitchen cabinets but now I realize how hard it will be choosing a finish for hardware. Do you favor brass with gray? Or the silver tones?

my son's height measurements and hand prints
from age one to 17
Next month, as my only child turns 18, we might be making his final measurement marks on our hall wall.
Between college applications and yearbook dedications, it's fair to say that I am an emotional wreck.
You may have seen our 'growth wall' here before. It's just extra special to me right now.
If you have a young one, start a growth chart!

I found this quote from Elaine Griffin recently while going through some of my old decor magazine tear sheets:
"Time and money are inversely proportinate -
to spend less of one you must always spend exponentially more of the other."
So true, don't you think?
I'm a really big spender of time when it comes to decor.
More fun that way.
What about you?

Now that my master bath re-do is a re-done, my kitchen is screaming for a little love. For months, I have been combing colors for that 'perfect gray' cabinet color. But lately....I'm seeing some wonderful gray on kitchen walls.
Makes me go, "Hmmmm."
What about you?
Do you tend to like gray better for kitchen walls? or cabinets?

Above the bed, a vintage photo of Edie Sedgwick, 'muse' to Andy Warhol,
and the ultimate NYC party girl during the '60s.
It's not just the neutrals that I like in the bedroom of Michael Leva's NYC apartment, as recently published in Elle Decor. I was also struck by that oversize black and white photo of Edie Sedgwick.
I like how the photograph dominates the room and really is the statement piece there.
