It's a sea of Gray

February 22, 2012

For the last several months I have been grappling with the lack of personality that my office exudes. 
It's the think tank of the house and she is BORING! 
So, it's time for a refresh.
  Months of seeing posh, simple and clean danced in my head while I was sleeping, and then the vision was starting to come together.
First things first.
The color.
I knew I wanted gray, but had no idea that there were so many different shades of the color. 
After 200 swatches I have settled on 10

and then down to the final 4

Here's some of the  inspiration that moved me for my office project

Let's see how I can put all these inspiring images together to create a Think Tank worthy of a Thinker!


  1. Wonderful inspiration pics! Picking the perfect grey can be so hard since there are soooo many wonderful hues! Can't wait to see what you come up with :o)

    PS. I am now following you on Google...hope you will follow me back :o)

  2. Oh, I know what you mean about all the different shades! It took me forever to choose just the right white for my dining room. The poor high school kid working at Lowe's helped me and I asked him if we women were a real pain in the butt having to get the perfect shade. He said, "Well you don't make it real easy." Tee hee. He was very patient. I'm sure you'll make a great choice after a little more agonizing. :)
