gray pinspiration

all from here...
and it's worth the visit.

a few gray kitchens... case you need a little inspiration.

antiques with a touch of modern

Atlanta Homes Magazine
Bill Ingram and William McLure/Bill Ingram Architects

I'm crazy about the vintage elements in this 
Designer Show House room; the black and white 
pillow adds such a fresh touch, doesn't it?

Details: A Gardner's NYC Apartment

I'm crazy for all the neutral tones and collected 
details in the Upper East Side apartment of floral 
arranger and terrace designer (terrace designer? I want that job!!) 
Michael Walter, owner of Lexington Gardens.

loot vintage rentals

I love all the antique and vintage stuff that  Loot Vintage Rentals of Austin, Texas
has to offer for event rentals.

I especially like this canopy with chippy vintage columns and white silk netting: 

Imagine using these chairs and/or sofas for a fun party:

or these tables:

and accessories:

Such terrific vintage stuff.
Makes me wanna find an excuse to have a party...

gray kitchen cabinets in a renovated barn

A farmhouse style kitchen in a renovated German barn.
See the story and photos in the New York Times.
(The kitchen and bath are the best parts.)

a gray swedish interior

I love these monochromatic gray rooms in Swedish antique dealer 
Alexander From's home. See more here in the recent Lonny.

On a Glamping Picnic...

I'm longing for a glamping picnic...
 full of natural linens and white cotton canvas.
 Just the thing to cool me off from this southern summer heat...

Thank you, RedEnvelope, for inviting me to participate in your
Anatomy of a Picnic Project!

Here's hoping your 4th of July is a picnic!

natural linen on the table...

photos from Rough Linen

I'm crazy about the natural linen tablecloths from Rough Linen
sponsor of a perfect gray. They are available in standard sizes, too,
but aren't these custom linen cloths just
wonderful at this wedding reception?
