Grey Palette Makes for 'GREYT' Rooms!

Designer Thom Filicia
If you love a neutral grey palette for a room, check out these 'GREYT' designs by Thom Filicia.  Thom appeared on Bravo's Queer Eye and recently launched a line of fabrics for Kravet.  He has a signature style that's a combination of modern with classic touches.

The spice brown base cabinets add warmth and texture to this modern kitchen.
The gilded mirror is a spectacular focal point that shows off well against the steel grey walls.

Mix it Up - Cool Grey with Warm Neutrals

Grey is a popular color this season and I've fallen in love with the combination of cool grey paired with warmer neutrals! The warm tones add a cozy feeling to the soft cool grey in a room.  Take a look at these images to get ideas about how you might like to use this color combo in your home.

These icy and warm grey geometric accent pillows mirror the colors of winter. They work great with warm browns and other rich colors.

Artist Stephanie Wheeler used a cool grey, blue and warm brown palette in this abstract painting.  The colors blend harmoniously and the dark frame adds the contrast needed so the art pops against the geometric wallpaper.

This cool grey lamp can be paired with any color to blend or stand out.

If you love grey, I'd love to help you find ways to bring this color scheme to life in your home.  Tell me how you've mixed it into your world so I can share your ideas with readers.
