It's the new white12.10.09
It's official! Gray, is the NEW white! And here is another perfect example of it used beautifully by Carrier and Company. Design team Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller have pulled together an inviting palette with grays, bleached wood, natural steel and poppy. In the living space open to the kitchen area, they paired gray with icey blue. One might think it would come across a little too industrial. But this home has all the industrial elements paired with soft touches, to create a comfortable balance. The Wrought Iron Coffee table with distressed would top says, "eat dinner here" You know the gray is dark enough to withstand a little abuse. This home could be casually elegant with slipcovered cream linen everywhere, but instead gray creates the exact same effect with 1/2 the maintenance. The formal dining room does what is should - highlights a beautifully crafted table and set of chairs. It's a little minimalist, but something tells me the view behind the windows and doors will add to the ambiance.
