It looks as though various hues of grey (gray?) is the strongest color trend for this year’s interiors. It is, of course, a fabulous “neutral” – able to hold its own with pretty much any accent color – but is also very much a color in its own right. Apparently it was everywhere at the January Maison et Objet show in Paris (especially in its warmer ‘greige’ hue), and is certainly strongly represented in the new collections rolled out during the spring. Here’s a sampling of some of my favorites: They are, clockwise from top left: Manuel Canovas (paper) Cadiz – galet, Cowtan & Tout Sherbourne – chinchilla, Telafina Inland – pebble and Central Park – celery, Osborne & Little Tara Chenille (top right), Crossville ceramic tile Color Blox Too – celery stalk, Manuel Canovas paper Sark – argent, Manuel Canovas Sloane – ivoire, Cowtan & Tout Fairhaven – natural, Harlequin 2573 – mineral and Busby Georgia – stone.
Isn’t that bird on the Canovas wallpaper a glorious creature?!
