I've got my eye on......

Here are some things that I have my eye one... aka "currently loving"....

I wonder if the design world is very slowly moving past cool grays?  For as long as I've been a designer grays have been IT. Erin (who owns Isabella) tells me of the days when dark chocolate brown and blues were the thing, and then came along gray.

I start to wonder because I have been SO drawn to warm taupe-y "French Grays" lately. Like this color:

I presented a plan to a new design client with this color for the walls:

And I loooooooove it! It's warm and cozy but still has gray in it.

Here is my favorite use of Brandon Beige that I have seen:

SO pretty. One of my lifelong dreams is to buy a brick house and paint it white. Someday...

For all of you out there who went gray crazy.. don't worry. It's not going anywhere ANY time soon. And remember, I'm right there with you:

But I've definitely had my eye on warm beige-y grays lately!

I also have my eye on plate walls. I love them (in dining rooms) and I really really want to do one in our dining room. I was hoping to do one before Thanksgiving, but I want to give my bank account a break after tiling the bathrooms. But someday!

The best plate wall ever:

Plates & a mirror!

I also have my eye on small Christmas trees lately! We are traveling for Christmas, and this year I really want to do a small, real tree sitting on the skirted table in our family room. 

I know these things are super random, but that's usually how my brain works ;)


  1. I love Brandon Beige too! I have that house photo saved.. and the brick house in my town I want to buy and paint white already picked out.. Great minds!

  2. that first plate!! can't wait to see yours come to life. we're also doing a small christmas tree and i LOVE the first image - thanks for sharing that great inspiration!

  3. where is the last pic from?

  4. I am with you....gray is here. And I am so glad that plates on the wall are kinda of back. When I started in the bus 20 years ago....we did a lot of that :)


THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate each and every comment.
