Rustic Elegance

I am totally in love with gray right now and I’ve always been a fan of mixing luxe items with rustic or industrial pieces. So, today I bring you some of my favorite recent finds in gray, both industrial and luxurious.

Super quick post today!

I just scored a gorgeous 1950’s steel dresser at the Charlotte ReStore. It has a couple of layers of paint on it… but I can’t wait to get to work on it! I’m thinking of going a different route than the industrial look… I’d like to paint it with a glossy automotive type finish. I’ll keep you posted on my progress!

Above pic is of a similar dresser online for $1800!

Blue Monday

I had a super low key weekend… you know the kind where you watch every movie you own while making all that popcorn stock you bought really work for you? Seriously though, when I wasn’t loafing around, I was looking for some blue rooms to inspire myself and you with. Have a happy Monday!

JK Hotel from Lonny Magazine. Blue, black, and cream is starting to seem like a never fail combo! I love the big wing chairs and glossy black accents.

This soft Robin’s Egg blue lacquered living room is a standout.

A Miles Redd living room also with lacquered walls. I love the mix here of blue, brown, black, cream, and red. This room looks really livable doesn’t it?
