Grays and whites permeating a space can be tricky to work with especially in residential homes.  Often clients want a clean, light and elegant look that is also warm and inviting. These palettes tend to connote contemporary loft and gallery type spaces in cities which often times while they are clean and modern also feel cold and missing something.  It’s important to augment the space with touches of color and natural materials such as wood, marble, limestone or glass.  This is an example of a residential space which achieves a nice balance between modern design (one won’t get tired of the colors in 3 months!) yet warmth and an inviting atmosphere.
