Décor Trends – Innovative Gray Living Room Ideas

Searching for gray living room ideas? Looking for a way to add depth and update your space? Paint walls in a pale dove gray, add brownish toned grey furnishings to act as a canvas for your modern furnishings, floor coverings, and surreal porcelain collection. Add Asian inspired artwork for a palatial feel.

 

Gray Living Room Ideas

 

Gray is a hue that is edgy and reminds one of the splendor and evocative wear of Gustavian style castles, the patina of time seems stylish and elegant. Much of this color’s popularity seemed to take off after designer Abigail Ahren’s dark colour palette took the world by storm, and inspired many a decorator and discerning homeowner to look for these smoky tones and gray living room ideas in particular. After all, gray works well in contemporary spaces as well, particularly as an industrial décor touch, or as a way of layering a more traditional space.

Innovative Gray Living Room Ideas – No. 1 – White with Gray

Pure white is a classic colour for floors and walls, and layering grays brings warmth and elegance to your space. When choosing grays vary the hues, and allow multiple textures to emerge.

In this room, the fireplace embellishments contrast beautifully with the soft gray carpet. The beauty of this room is in part to the curated arrangement of details from different eras, blending stories and history together.

 

Gray Living Room Idea – No. 2 – A Gray that is Almost Green

This historic gray by Farrow & Ball has a green mossy undertone that lends an air of elegance and depth. It’s light enough for a small space. Traditional style and elegance is truly evoked with this old world palette, and the warmth of leather, wood and texture come together beautifully. Natural light accents the depth of color.

 

Decorating Idea – No. 3 – Layer Hues

Industrial grey surfaces as a background for ornate and eclectic decorations, artwork and lighting work splendidly. This lovely vignette showcases a brilliant blue velvet sofa, regency style table showcasing a porcelain Lion by Francisco Polope. Small spaces become transformed when these kind of dynamic combinations come together so artfully.

Whatever style or space, gray can be used beautifully to accent a preexisting theme, add layer and texture, warmth or even act as a canvas for your art collection or eclectic style. Choose from the palest of cloud grays, smoky dark colours, charcoal to black and even silvery touches. From gray molding to gray floors, this is a surefire way to add a level of sophistication.

Not to be missed Pullcast’s Jewelry Hardware at Maison & Objet 2018

Maison & Objet is usually one of my favorite events of the year, particularly when it comes to seeing daring collaborations between artisans, artists and designers. This year the exhibit premieres a fascinating limited line of hardware that looks like jewelry –Pullcast’s Limited Collection with Feu. The gorgeously sumptuous  hardware uses Swarovski crystals. The Tiffany Quartz hardware piece has a sense of sculptural intricacy that is typical of Pullcast’s luxuriously artistic hardware. Much of the company’s work has a modernist abstract quality to it all the while reflecting the strange and beautiful textures and shapes from the modern world.

Design2

 

Showroom1

“You should enter another world surrounded by beautiful but also mysterious accents & figures. A place for barefoot elegance.”

Wisdom & Koenig Interior is a Munich based shop and interior design service headed by Kyle and Domi whose eclectic vision of décor and beauty is a colorful and bold style –splendidly exuding a sense of Bohemian chic, exciting, elegant and unusual. The designers love French, North African color and motifs complementing these traditions with keynotes from antique collectibles, modern forms and even touches of post-impressionist art and postmodern design.

It is such a delight to feature photographs from the design duo’s home and beautiful projects, as well as an exclusive interview!

 

Home3A view of the duo’s extraordinary home in Munich.

 

_14Y6124 - Arbeitskopie 3

 

Please tell me a little about your background, education, training -how did you come to be designers and decorators?

Domi: Early on I discovered my interest in interiors and furniture and appreciation for design. I received my carpenter diploma after high school and from there studied Interior design. In 1994, I opened my own store in Munich focusing on Moroccan interiors (Ali Baba 1994- 2006).

Kyle: Singer/song writer, performer and fashion model (worldwide for Versace, Valentino, Hilfiger, Yamamoto, etc.) As a musician, you are always experimenting and exploring new ideas, breaking rules and combining colors & moods. As a model, I was introduced and influenced by many different cultures as well as the fashion industry and photography. Dominique gave me the last push by opening my eyes to the world of interior design.

 

Showroom

 

Most interesting project/ decorate project/ client?

Domi: My dream project was decorating a home in southern France. I was given total freedom to express the desired wishes of the client.

Kyle: Having worked directly with such greats as Versace and Valentino, I really benefitted from their freedom of creativity and lack of rules.  I saw firsthand that creation is very personal and the only boundaries are those you create yourself. This transports beautifully to arranging our showroom. Because we have such and eclectic selection the real challenge is bringing it all together so that it looks and feels perfect.

Home1The duo’s private home….

 

Your home is extraordinary, please tell me about your style of decorating and how you arrange and curate the space?

First of all, having an amazing space to work with is key! Light always plays an important role, as well as the comfort factor. We like the room to be warm and inviting however it should also be exciting to the eye. We want to discover things slowly as we settle in. It’s an eclectic mix of different periods, no rules; making sure to add in just enough of our own personal style, Moroccan with modern. However, in the end it must all fit together in harmony with color, texture and feel.

Favorite modern designer?

Domi: Gabriele Crespi and Jean Prouve.

Kyle: Gert Voorjans, Gio Ponti, Zaha Hadid, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Favorite designer chair or furniture piece?

Domi: Norman Cherner’s Armchair

Kyle: Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair.

Dream project?

Domi: A Boutique Hotel where each room is unique.

Kyle: I would love to put together a very cozy restaurant from top to bottom. Some place I would like to hang out myself!

Muuto -Leading Talent in Contemporary Design

tabletop, trays, vases, decor, minimalist, modern decor, contemporary furniture, trends in decorLoft Chair by Thomas Bentzen and Platform Tray designed Sam Hecht

 

One can spend hours looking at the sculptural pieces by the fine designers of Muuto, an innovative and visionary Scandinavian design company offering furniture and decorative accessories that are distinguished by a graceful beauty.

 

Imagine the unfurled leaf shiny surface down, creating a well of space, like a human palm, the matte color of this underside subtle and full of shadow, color rich yet tonal, the quiet of a forest floor.

 

This is how the organic shape of many of Muuto’s pieces seem to evolve, texture and form orchestrated to become functional, understated, light weight, and sculptural. So many of the pieces seem a marriage of manmade architectural beauty and biomorphic shaping….coming together to create form  that one cannot help but respond to….

 

It is with great pleasure that I share my short interview with Christian Grosen, Director of Design at Muuto.

 

Christian, the Muuto designs have an architectural sensibility to them, particularly the furniture, and yet almost every piece is distinguished by an attention to texture, can you tell me how these elements are woven so beautifully together? Is there a certain process to make functional items so usable and so beautiful? 

Christian Grosen…It’s the result of a close dialogue between Muuto’s creative team and the external designers. From the very beginning of a project we are aware of balancing the contemporary and the lasting qualities of a given design. A design must live up to our design values which also touches upon an architectural appearance and attention to detail and material.

Who do you find to be the most inspiring in terms of historic designers? 

I’m a great fan of Jean Prouvé. He somehow managed to create his own unique and absolutely stunning design universe. The Danish designer Poul Kjærholm is also one of my idols. I had the pleasure of working on his designs together with his widow Hanne Kjærholm when I was at Fritz Hansen. She taught me how to achieve beauty and logic in a design through understanding the character of materials.

In what ways do natural materials inform your aesthetic? 

Each material has its own character. I think it’s important to understand the material and to use it in the right way where aesthetics, function, quality and price become a coherent whole.

 

 

Muuto shootWorkshop Chair designed by Cecilie Manz

 

Most interesting series or project? 

I’m very proud of the Workshop Chair by Cecilie Manz. It’s an archetypical wooden chair – cool, contemporary and attractive, yet lasting in its appearance. I’m sure it will be in the collection for decades due to it’s high level of craftmanship and inherent lasting qualities.

 

 

 

 

And as for yourself Christian — may I ask -did you always make things or design -when you were a child for example -what was your first creative memory? 

Always…I remember building all kinds of stuff in the workshop in my parents basement. I grew up on a large brewery which was a great playground and inspiration for a kid. I remember I found scrap metal and wood in the brewery’s containers and build my own imaginary machines and constructions. There were always an aesthetic hierarchy in the way I used the materials – indirectly I guess it’s more or less the same I do today.

4 Easy Ways to Upgrade + Update a Tween Girl’s Bedroom

Image via Oh Eight Oh Nine.jpeg

Oh Eight Oh Nine

 

My daughter who just turned 8 has been requesting an update to her room -she’s had the same set up since age 5 so it’s time. Her taste and interests have changed.

Our changes will have to be in the details, because we won’t make any major furnishing changes, and we just painted about 3 years ago -and it’s in perfect condition.  I also invested in high quality shades and curtains.

There are new fun ways to update the look without getting rid of the big investment pieces.

 

1. Add a High Quality Poster or Photo that Changes the Mood

Interior Philosophy gets this look right.

 

 

2. Change Those Drapes!

 

 

I am loving these Boho style Pom Pom curtains…..from Susie Watson Designs + Serena & Lily
