Friday Favorites - Grey and Gold

I don't know if you are aware, or maybe you are, but grey and gold is having a moment in the interior design world. What I like about the combo is the unexpectedness of it. Usually, until a couple of years ago, grey was usually combined with silver tones, even in clothing. But now, the contrast is so refreshing. Grey is a cool color, while the gold warms things up. I think it's a natural reaction to the grey on grey trend where sometimes, in my opinion, it got so one dimensional that it appeared very cold. Either way, this trend is pretty! And now that brass is big as well (you can read my post about that here if you want to see some more beautiful inspiration!), I've seen grey with brass as well. Equally as pretty!

Grey is big in bathrooms right now, and works really well with all brass or gold fixtures.

LOVE this! Just stunning. Dana Wolters Interiors. 

It works really well in this living room, with a grey couch, pale grey walls, and all gold accessories. Morgan Harrison Home.

This room! An all-time favorite from House Beautiful.

I featured this photo before, but I just love the pale grey walls, seat cushions and curtains with just a touch of gold in the framed artwork. Henhurst Interiors.

Grey kitchens are super hot right now and have been going strong for a few years, but the recent change is using brass hardware and fixtures now rather than chrome or polished nickel. I love the mix! Heidi Piron Design.

Beautiful kitchen from House & Home. Love, love, love those antique light fixtures! Sarah Richardson Design.

Okay, you know it's a trend when Pottery Barn Kids does a "kids" kitchen version in grey and gold! This cracks me up!! How cute is this?!

And how about in fashion? As I mentioned earlier, previously white gold or silver accessories would have been a natural with anything grey, however, just like the home trend, grey outfits are being accessorized with yellow gold jewelry and watches, and it works!

Happy Friday (and maybe shopping!)
