When I design a room, I always start with fabrics. And that was no different in this master bedroom I did a while back for the Hamptons Showhouse, where I was lucky enough to kick things off with a gorgeous orange toile from Duralee! Once I selected the fabric, I knew I wanted to coordinate it with a more masculine print to balance the room. So I went with a Phillip Jeffries wallcovering in a bold geometric. But what paint color could coordinate with all of that boldness?
I went right to neutral territory with a beautiful grey from Farrow & Ball called Mole’s Breath – isn’t that a great name?! It was perfect for the major wood surfaces in the room, like the mantel and the bookshelves here on one side of the fireplace.
On the other side of the fireplace, I built in a coffee/wine bar for the home owners, perfect for starting or ending their day! And the grey is such a great complement to the fabrics, patterns, and art in the room! I love grey as a neutral, but what do you think? Is it a go-to color for you?
