Razzle Dazzle: Gray and Red

Posted in Inspiration Boards at 9:44 pm by Jess

I did not intend to make two inspiration boards this week, but E and A put up this board, which is gray and brown. It’s stunning. I had never considered gray and brown together. Never ever.

I have been waiting for people to catch on to gray for a long time. It is such an elegant color, when used correctly. It’s always been one of my favorite colors to wear. That said, I have never worn it with red.

I chose red because I had the image of gray pebbles in my head and I thought to myself, what colors would go with that? Suddenly I thought about red roses. Just as quickly I decided that would be awful. Pebbles are rustic. I could line the table-runner with them. I could spell the new couple’s last name in them. Roses, on the other hand – and red roses to boot – are supreme luxury and indulgence. Total opposites, it seemed. So, I went for it, simply because I like a challenge.
