Not Just A Gray Space

Grey walls and grey floors usually does not add up to an stunning interior, but this home's clever use of grey colours combined with many design pieces of furniture is genius.

I'm having a great time in Cambridge, met some great people & have been trying different restaurant everyday, so in short, I'm loving my new life :)

Oh and thanks to Tigerprint for the feature!

Wow using grey is not so common! I love it! One of my favorite colors is grey.. I really love neutrals (haha so boring). Lovely pictures :)

I think the gray looks very sophisticated.

Blovet Beauty said...

the white tub really throws off those grey walls.. I like how these pictures seem to something to counter the greyness.. personally though, grey isn't my choice for walls or walls...

Raisa said...

The thought of grey wall and floors never crossed my mind, and its one of my favourite colours.

Love it!

S.Elisabeth said...

Yay ah I'm so jealous you get to live in CAMBRIDGE!!!
And I like the decorations, but I'm still not too big a fan of gray. Though I love the bathroom pic.

D! said...

That looks awesome.
I'd love to leave in a place as chic.

TheBeautyFile said...

These are beautiful...there is something so glamorous about the lighting throughout the house. Almost mystical. How's everything going over there? Hope you're doing well!

How very pretty! I would never have thought to use grey as a wall color but it is surprisingly pretty!

Conversation Pieces said...

Happy to hear you're enjoying your new life :)

Those pics are pretty much like the planned colour scheme of my flat... all our walls are varying shades of grey and we have bought the grey paint for the floors. Can't wait til we have a spare weekend to get it done! :)

Cathy said...

Yay! So glad ur enjoying Cambridge... Can't wait to be back and have fac lunches together :-D Love those red chairs. Just too cute! Xxxc

Heidi Rose said...

As much as I love the "sparkling chandelier in the bathroom" idea, I wouldn't put it directly over the tub for fear that it would somehow fall on me. No need to get into the horrifically unfortunate details- but really, not a good idea.

i love this post

Eliza said...

i have never been drawn to grey for home colours, but i quite like how those rooms are arranged :) <3

Jacky said...

I like that it feels very warm and inviting. The pops of red are just fabulous! And are those books on the back wall??

Lilly said...

That bathroom is so perfect!

Ruxandra said...

c said...

I love grey! the ultimate neutral that goes with everything, casual OR chic. :)

Kate said...

I looooove gray. My living room used to be gray (the shade on the walls was called platinum) with a yellow couch and dark wood accent furniture, and just a few plum accents. Your post has made me miss it so!

xo,
Kate
