My (Not So) New Favorite Color

I guess I’ll make it official and admit my obsession with grey. The love affair has been brewing for a while. I love it in interior design and I love it in floral design…

I’ve always been drawn to the grey tones of dusty miller, certain succulents and brunia berries so it just thrills me to see floral designers using them in fashion-forward arrangements and bouquets.

Last summer I painted the outside of my house grey…my bathroom is grey (and turquoise)…my new sheets are crisp white cotton with slate trim…our TV room sofa is a graphite leather sectional…and from the looks of these pictures, I’m destined for a greyish kitchen!

Anyone else feel the love for grey?

Let’s Pretend

…you’re a guest at a wedding reception or a dinner party…

Which  setting would you most enjoy? I always love asking your favorites…which is slightly unfair since I chose the pictures…so they are clearly ALL my favorites!

I just love adding fruits and vegetables to arrangements…not only are they interesting and beautiful, but you can snack while working! Think I might leave the brussel sprouts in the centerpieces, though…

Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks so much for visiting the Brouhaha this week. You don’t know how happy it makes me when you stop by…

Nothing beats the architectural quality of these giant orbs…

I keep promising myself that one day I will buy lots and lots of these bulbs and plant them in my garden…that dream started when I walked past this cottage in Crested Butte, Colorado a couple of summers ago…

<KENOX S630  / Samsung S630>…love that the owner was bold enough to paint the door and windows plum…so artistic…

Hope you all have a great Thursday…we’re nearing the weekend!
