sweet serenity {slate+taupe}

The juxtaposition of warm and cool colors is so appealing to me and the perfect way to create a soothing, unpretentious and inviting space. The ideal palette to come home to after a hectic Monday.

I am so in love with pic #2. That cool grey couch and dark stained concrete floors. Not to mention all the cool wood pieces. Stunning.

I so agree with you I like warm colors but needa touch of cool to balance it. In fact I wrote that very sentence in the post I did today. Kathysue

What a lovely combination...zen-like without being boring! Love the global look of the drum tables & rug in the second image.

That headboard is insane....I just love it! Makes me want to go shopping in some of my favorite Antique shops! I always try to use a balanced combination of warm and cool colors together. That always makes for a great feel to any room!

Those bed side lamps in the lonny shot are so glamorous, I'll have to go back to lonny and try to find where those beauties are from. Beautiful post Blair
