Grey is a versatile colour with a plethora of hues to choose from when decorating, but by that very turn it can be difficult to get right. Go too dark and it can end up being a little too Prisoner: Cell Block H, take it too light and you could be in danger of what I call 'dishwater' coloured walls! So, imagine my delight when I happened upon this San Francisco home that uses a variation of grey hues throughout each room to great effect. As soft, sky-grey hue adorns the living room walls providing an idea base for antique furniture and accessories (that mirror? Hello!) mixed in with more modern pieces. Moving into the kitchen, the dramatic black flooring continues, a design feature that serves to connect the individual spaces. The kitchen sees a surprise addition of brights in the form of an orange standalone chair; this addition is a great way to keep interest in the scheme. Through to the dining room and again we see how old and new mix with ease: the rustic, weathered textures of the tabletop sits comfortably below the modernist drop pendant (this Industrial Bulb Pendant is similar). As well as the grey hues, I also like the typographical and numeric pieces, especially the numbered stairs - so fun! What do you like about this San Francisco home?
