Grey Dey Thursdey. . . Vol. I

Last year, as we updated my creative space Studio One,
I was totally smitten with all the shades of gray for home decor.

I struggled with choosing a hue deep enough to show the gray,
but not too deep, as Studio One is in the unfinished portion 
of our lower level On Crooked Creektt!

I wanted something similar in hue to the concrete walls 
that cover two of the three walls in this space.

Mercury silver decor accessories 
were used in the vignette atop the vintage dresser for updating.
I was craving a more elegant and sophisticated style 
for inspiration within my creative space.

The lighting in Studio One is fluorescent,
so keeping the paneled wall a light shade was essential.

My resources, stored on shelves within arms reach,
camouflage much of the paneled wall that lies behind them.

Regardless of the weather on the Prairie outside,
it's always Springtime inside Studio One!

The gray in the faux mourning doves 
is a near match for the Sherwin~Williams, Popular Gray wall color.

Ambient lighting and classical musical, 
combined with the soothing hue of gray wall color, 
makes for an elegant, creative designing space in Studio One.

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creektt will be joining

It is my wish that you, too, 
will experience the serene and tranquil inspirations 
that only the hue of gray can bring into your life.
