shades of gray {dream home 2011}

The 2011 Dream Home certainly shows off every shade of gray—from deep charcoal to pale pewter. If you are looking to add this color to your home these rooms provide fantastic inspiration with their textures, treatments and pieces.

What about these rooms inspired you the most? I particularly love the textured walls of the office and the antique mirror mounted in the fireplace.

I love everything about these, but I have to say what stands out the most is the artwork above the fireplace in the third picture and various little pops of color such as the flowers, greenery, and lemons.

Just beautiful! And so timely. I just bought a home and decided on a palette of taupes and greys/

I especially love the use of textures - the stainless steels, metals and metallic printed upholstery. Inspiring use of of grey in so many different ways!

It is all about textures since color is not a major component. Love them all

I love gray and changed the wall colors in my house from vanilla to light gray, it really gets more sophisticated and cool. Nevertheless, after some years of drapes in shades of gray, gray rug, it screams for some pops of color, specially in Summer.

That kitchen! Gorgeous!!
My house is all grey and white except for the kitchen which I need to tear down and redo with an expansion.
So that kitchen is perfectly inspirational. I love the round rings of the chandelier... I wish I had the height to install that!

The giant book in the first image is so cool! I love the mix of cement greys with a more pewter or mauve kind of grey, it's a good mix on tones!

The overall design of these rooms is hypnotic, I can imagine myself feeling sleepy just by looking at it. The gray color makes it so somber but really stylish. Even the chandelier looks like a pendulum.
