Gray and Green Rooms

My new obsession.........gray & green rooms. I love this combination!  There's no doubt gray is the new neutral and it's popularity is not wavering.  Gray seems to be the new go-to wall color and shades of green are popping up everywhere.  Green is refreshing and can add a crispness to the room.  Check out the interiors below, the accents pop in brighter shades of chartreuse and lime green.  But after seeing the living room designed by Marika Meyer, I have to admit, I love the duo in paler shades as well!!

A Calming Lakeside Lodge

It's been a while since my last post and in the interim it has been hectic with the holidays. Now that they are over and 2014 is here, I am once again making an effort to de-stress my life as best I can.  My new year's resolution is to actually try to stick to my new year's resolution, best summed up with this:

I recently ran across this lakeside lodge, featured in At Home in Arkansas and love the calming and peaceful interiors.  I can't imagine feeling stressed in this house!  The family wanted a home that was "comfortable, approachable and not too decorated" and designer Heather Chadduck set out to do just that!  I love the soft color palette of green, gray, white and pale blue as well as the soft paint colors by Sherwin Williams.  Take a look at the photos below, the guest house is my favorite!!!
