Stray Dog Studio

Another soggy, grey day reminded me of an interior that I fell in love with a while back that maximizes this muted tone.
Amongst many things, the use of grey in this apartment really appeals to me.
I love the layered effect created by combining new and old elements; it seems that the owner has an uncanny knack for editing thrifted finds to perfectly suit the his aesthetic.
I'm drawn to both the masculine and zen quality of this space- perfect for a rainy day, non?

We just installed Stray Dog paper mache lamps in three of the bedrooms we did out in California and they looked SO good! They are so whimsical!

I Love the gray! I never think to use it as a neutral instead of tan or caramel color. I love the cool tone of it. May have to do a grey room now :)

What a beautiful space - you hit the nail on the head talking about its balance of masculinity and zen ... as much as I love a good shabby chic room, I love those spaces that are gender-balanced! Great eye candy for the day!!

This is a wonderful space! Gray is often overlooked, I think, because people think it looks cold and/or dingy.

Incorrect, I say! Here is proof positive.

That gray color is awesome, I love the way it looks with the antlers over the mantle!

Ooh, love that upholstered chair -- such a good idea for adding busy fabric to a room without overwhelming it.

I am in love with the wall in the bedroom where the frames go all the way to the floor- fab idea!
