color crush { shades of gray }

This may seem odd to some, but I love the color gray. I prefer it to black any day. It is softer on the eyes and has a calming effect. Just take a look at my blog for instance. Wouldn't you agree that the gray text I chose is much more soothing than black text.?

When it comes to home decor, the same concept applies. Black is timeless and will always add a level of sophistication and drama (when done right).

However, if you are craving a softer look, I recommend taking a chance with gray. Here are some of my favorite spaces that use various shades of this underdog of a color.

There must be a reason I keep seeing it everywhere.
