{moody grey}

Have posted about all white interiors and bright bursts of colour, but what if you prefer neither and wanted the calm, moody tones of gray? Sophisticated and sexy when infused with hints of brown, gray can be cold and stark if they are too blue. This Paris apartment is just perfect and reminds me of Joachim Bandeau's watercolours {below}, which are varying shades of graphite to black, and look simultaneously soft and bold.

So lovely. We've just decided to paint our bedroom a sort of greyish, mushroomy taupe with bright white trim. Not sure it will look as stunning as this, but I'll snap some pics when it's done.
Thanks for more inspiration!
