    A perfect grey {in the bedroom}

     We've just (finally!) finished painting our bedroom - a long overdue little project that ended up taking much less time than expected and had me wondering why I hadn't just got it over with much sooner. The rather drab taupe has been enveloped by a soft silvery grey and already the room feel so much lighter and brighter. I noticed right away that I could turn the dimmer down even lower, and the whole room had a beautiful glow. I think every bedroom I've ever been able to paint myself has been either a soft blue or grey shade - they always feel so tranquil and restful to me. 

    Unsurpisingly, one of my all-time favourite bedrooms is in this shade as well. Staci Edwards recently invited me to share one of my favourite spaces and I chose Katie Lee Joel's Manhattan townhouse. Designed by Nate Berkus, I loved it's updated traditional romantic style. I think this guest bedroom would be such a serene space to start or end your day. Nate chose Benjamin Moore's Cliffside Grey - a lovely soft shade that looks luminous in the light of the big windows.

    Stop by Staci's blog to say hello and to see the rest of this beautiful townhouse.

    I love Nate Berkus and I love those windows/doors. Amazing!


    Agreed - must admit, amongst them all I think Nate must be my fave.

    Can you imagine starting the day flooded with all that natural light?


    Love the graay.......the first picture is a total love.
