Grey love…..the new white?

It seems to be that every lovely neutral room that catches my eye at the moment, has touches or shades of grey¬† in it….I have spent the last couple of days going through one of my favourite blogs Greige . This blog is gorgeous and full of the most inspirational images about……..yes……. grey in all its shades and hues….

I found these two images below on Greige and I was just bowled over by the gorgeous dress which I believe is vintage Dior…how can anyone go wrong with Dior…..

Then I also found¬† this magnificent room……

This room really speaks to me…in a calm , peaceful, harmonious way. The other thing I love about it is the textures….the rug combined with the linen upholstery make this room tactile and interesting, despite the muted palette ….and the books….need I say more?

I am currently working on a home for a client with a French feel and I want to show her this image for inspiration…it is exactly the look we are trying to achieve….a relaxed family home with a French flavour and a lived in feel.
