STREET STYLE VS. DECOR: FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY


To view the original article, click here.


Forgive me for the typical post title. But the Fifty Shades of Gray is in fact trending this season. Pre-Fall 2014 had Emporio Armani choose a mild gray tone for a number of their suits. Calvin Klein had multiple shades of gray in loose silhouettes. And on the spring 2014 runways, silvery and metallic hues were sparkling at Chanel - even on their couture sneakers.
Yet, I would have not picked gray to be a color of choice for a living space. Perhaps I am biased here as I’m a sucker for all things colored. But thanks to Pinterest, my beliefs have changed. Gray is a sophisticated color like its counterparts black and white. If it looks chic and classy like this Fashionista I spotted, it can also be chic and classy for your room too.
Think about variations of shades and textures when it comes to gray. It allows your room to be less camouflaged and more aesthetically pleasing. Try accessorizing your space with white linen sheets and a gray throw, gray textured cushions and metallic tin buckets with colorful bunches of flowers. Here are some more décor pieces you can try.
