GREAT ways WITH GRAYS

GREAT ways WITH GRAYS

 

Hi All.  How’s your Friday going?

Well, finally Spring has arrived . . . or at least is very close by.
While we’re all glad for better weather,
many are anxious for other changes as well.
At our house, we want to paint the main living areas.
Wait, let me rephrase that.
We both want new paint, but Hubs wants me to be the only one painting.

While we usually lean towards browns and beige,
since our BATHROOM CABINET PROJECT,
we’re going for grays.

So I’m heavy into research for gray combinations.

True, gray tones are trendy right now.
But it’s not at all new in interior design.

In the 1950’s, gray was very popular combined with a dusty pink,
or with a low intensity turquoise.

Think “Poodle Skirts“.

ARTZZLE.COM

BETTER HOMES and GARDENS online,

BHGartzzle.com

has a wonderful article on how great gray is to use,
with nearly any accent color.

Here at our place we’ve decided on two tones of gray,
a light neutral and a mid-tone, darker shade.
As for accent colors, well . . . that’s gonna take a while yet 🙂

Have a great weekend and as always . . .
don’t stress too much, just start it.

There are lots of fun links today, so check them out!

The Art Part

Many of you know that the name “Artzzle” comes from my philosophy that “Life is a Giant Puzzle of Art and Design” and I like to help people put the pieces of their homes together (that plus the fact that Art is a fantastic alpha and topic search word!).

Cruising the St. Cloud Summer Art Crawl last week was almost over-stimulating for us. And I realized that to this point, Artzzle has concentrated more on interiors and design than art. So you’ll see a new tab on the menu now, and I’ll be on constant search for interesting items to feature there.

Of course “Art” means many things to millions of people. My first thoughts always go to painting and drawing, but there are so many other areas to explore.

Please suggest any topics you’d like to see featured. I like new ideas!
