Gray fabrics work as neutrals in any interior space and Morrissey Fabric offers vintage shibori textiles in many shades of gray. Above are several vintage Asian hill tribe textiles in one of a kind gray hues. Each one is a slightly different color gray which gives these shibori fabrics their distinctive personality. The pillows in the center are two of a kind offered only at Morrissey Fabric.
Gray interior decor can be adapted to suit many styles. Above is a cozy space created by Decoratio. The rustic cottage furnishings and linen pillows work well to create a relaxing family room of gray. Who knew? Don't limit your impression of gray interiors to a contemporary modern style.
Gray interiors to minimal for you? Then add a bit of color to a gray-themed space. Sea glass greens and soft sky blue will give your room a coastal feel. Something as simple as glass bead garlands can be used as inspiration. Place the on a table top or window sill for extra color and a hint of sparkle.
Home BNC combined several neutral colors to the well designed kitchen and family room in the photo. The painting on the right in the interior space could easily have been the inspiration for the combination of colors in the rooms. Also note the pillows on the chairs. The prints have gray, white and various shades of soft blue.
Design Seeds provides well thought out color palettes for interior design inspiration. They get their color palettes from a source that never goes wrong; nature. When earning my BFA in painting, I had a color theory professor that had us bring cut flowers, twigs and leaves to the studio. She gave us the task of observing then painting all of the colors we could see within two of the items. It was a valuable lesson in training my eye for color. If you are stuck, look at nature and you will automatically be drawn to the colors you like best. It's a great jumping off point even if you later change direction.
Gray textiles can handle the addition of most any color. For this post I'm sticking with fabrics and accessories in greens and blues. What do you think of the photo by Heavy Threads? They successfully incorporated gray with indigo blue African textiles. Not only are the colors a win-win, the contemporary sofa in heather gray supports the vintage indigo textiles from Africa quite nicely.
The variety of African indigo textiles seen here will give you the relaxed look inspired by the Heavy Threads interior space. There is a wide selection in the Morrissey Fabric website store as well as in the Etsy shop. Or send me a message if you would like custom pillows. And just in case you are wondering, a future post will share ideas for using gray with pinks and yellows.
