Gray + Gold

March 23, 2010

A gray + gold color palette for an interior is sophisticated and timeless.  I can envision an entire home in this palette – of course, varying the values and combined with rich textures and finishes.  One could also incorporate an additional accent color if desired but it’s definitely not needed.

Love the style of this room – and the chevron pattern wood flooring is fabulous!

Pale cool gray walls and drapery are warmed up by the gold tones of mirror and wood.

Crisp. Fresh. Warm. = perfect bedroom.

[note: I would be a little scared of those mirrors while sleeping]

A neutral palette of  grays is relaxing – the accents of gold add sparkle and a bit of drama.

Gray washed woods and gray carpet are refreshed

with yellow lamps and gold chair upholstery.

Relatively formal dining room yet the colors impart a laid back, subdued vibe.

Ok, it’s not quite ‘gold’  but I love this yellow door with the gray painted brick!

This Manhattan living room by Nate Berkus (I believe) for Billy Joel is

gorgeous and classic with a modern feeling.  Love it.

The color scheme can also be done high contrast and be quite bold.

    oooh, love it all! I painted my front door Saffron last fall to cheer up our grey brick home – It was wonderful on bleak winter days –
