50 Shades of Gray : Seductive Color Stories

DESIGN + IMPLEMENTATION FROM THE INSIDE OUT




50 Shades of Gray : Seductive Color Stories
 
I'm just mad about the use of bold grays in the landscape, in architectural applications and in the kitchen. What a better backdrop than the rich hue for showing off ornamental grasses against a home or fence. When paired with the simplicity of natural wood, it brings an element of nature into the home forever linking the inside to the out.
