Have you been watching The Block? One of my favourite things in terms of the decorating is Josh and Jenna’s grey-wall theme running through their house. I love grey walls. They look so sophisticated paired with more grey and ivory, but if you want colour you can add green or pink or lilac or orange (yes, just about anything!), and that will work too. It puts me in mind of one of my favourite grey bedrooms:
I love the darker grey silk curtains and the muted grey rug. And that bed is pretty special, too.
Who doesn’t love Hamptons-inspired decorating (above)? What does it for me here is the scale of the pieces: big, chunky grey console topped with giant glass lamps and big pieces of coral. My house used to be completely ‘Hamptons’ style with a bit of French provincial thrown in, but I’ve moved on to a lot of colour and a sort of crazy fusion of Hollywood Regency and Chinoiserie. This pic makes me want to go back!
To me this dark grey is a little more masculine. Love how it works with the gold touches, the mirror and that great chandelier – so glam!
