i love a good neutral sofa, especially in shades of gray. gray’s just so versatile, and flatters just about any color palette — from pale pinks, to yellow and even good old black & white. gray is such a sophisticated and accommodating color, friendly with all kinds of decor — from fancy french, to paired with loads of natural wood, gray just gets along so well with everybody. i love these looks, and there’s some really lovely gray sofas available i’ve been seeing around town. here’s a round up of a few i rooms, and a couple of sofas, i love.

first off, that sofa? can we discuss how comfy cozy that looks to curl up on? and those serge mouille light fixtures have long been on my wish list. in fact, this barcelone apartment decorated by Miquel Alzueta and featured in architectural digest espana is full of rare, designer collections (all those fabulous chairs!) — and that bookcase by Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé. It’s all quite stunning, included the pops of pink and those ornate black doors with a peek into the bedroom. for the entire tour, visit architectural digest espana.

hello all,

i find that many times pinners overlap…which isn’t such a bad thing. in the case of many of the pinners i follow, i truly believe it’s because i follow a group of folks with nothing short of lovely taste and lucky for me, happen to gel with my aesthetic. i also love when i happen upon a pinner that finds beautiful things i have yet to bump into. such is the case of alecia @ likes of us. there is a huge list of pinning perfection i can’t believe i haven’t had the pleasure of noticing before.

i am happy to say that now after spending a great deal of time on alecia’s boards there is a heck of a lot more overlap. i can’t turn down beautiful, sophisticated items no matter how hard i try.

a few favorites…

Top to bottom, left to right:

1. Starkness and adornment complement one another in this Barcelona home.
2. Black accents bring edge to an otherwise white bedroom.
3. Modern lighting and a bar counter complete this masculine kitchen.
4. I think I’ve fallen in love with this New York apartment.
5. Sesame-like speckles give a palatable touch to these stoneware bowls.

Happy Friday,
Annie
