bipolar: moody grays

We love, Love, LOVE comments and feedback from you all! 

A couple weeks ago, after this post, Laurel from Beyond Function (our very first follower - woohoo!), left this comment:

"You should do a totally gray and white post... I loved the "fall moody day post" a few days ago and I really want to design a room like that.  :)"

Because we love suggestions, we decided to accomodate! 

The fun thing about gray and white is it can be a moody scheme, or it can be really refreshing and "happy"!

This room...seriously moody...

This living room...seriously "happy"...

And moody...

And happy again...

A little moody...

A little "happy"...

Sometimes it's harder to distinguish.
I love the texture of the paint on this wall.

This room comes across as a "moodier" room to me...but who could ever be moody wrapped in that lovely throw!

Definitely moody...

I used to have a chair like this - they are so fun to sit in, rock, flip upside down...
This room is definitely a "happy room"!

I love the wood floors in this room.
It's still moody to me...

Loving the sheepskin throw on this sofa...

This kitchen is "moody" to me, but I'm pretty sure this is Martha Stewart's kitchen which most certainly has to be the happiest place on EARTH!!

This closet is a little "cold" to me - but I love the bright punch of color with that haphazard hanging t-shirt.  :o)

This striped wall from Lonny is so fabulous.
(not to mention the riding boots)  ;o)

I love how they've added a few "natural" elements to this room - the throw and the rug - really helps to warm it up!

To me, if you're not careful the gray/white combo can come across a little cold.
The flowers are essential in this room.

A nice, thick comforter can warm you right back up though!

What do you think about gray and white?
Moody, happy, boring, clean?

Here's hoping for a very "happy" Tuesday!

  1. wooot woot! If this was facebook I would push 'like'!! We were actually just talking about this last night!!! I love the images you found. The starbucks by my house just painted their walls grey and it looks so sterile. I know there is a better way to do it and these pics proved it! Ill take pics when we take the plunge!
