Gray is the new Black AND Blue

Incase you haven't noticed, gray is THE color of the moment.  Interior designers, home furnishing stores and design magazines all claim gray is the color to have in every chic home.  So...if you are anything like me and are a slave to trends (I love trendy touchs in a home) then you'll want to know how to incorporate a little gray without having to overhaul all your furnishings.  By the way, any of these items below work for children and adult spaces.

Any of these rugs from West Elm would look beautiful in any room.

Even Ikea has a beautiful and affordable gray rug.

I also love these Chunky Tassel Throws from West Elm.  The throw name is Platinum.  How chic.

This Gray Damask fabric from Buyfabrics.com is one of my favorite affordable fabrics around.

And if you think gray is too drab for your taste, check out the color paired with yellow.

Restoration Hardware has painted all the interiors of their stores from their classic silversage blue to beautiful gray and the result is stunning. 

These gorgeous antiqued candle sconces from Wisteria are painted a beautiful aged gray.  They are sold as a pair and would be beautiful in a girls room.

Another option for lighting, this gorgeous platinum pendant shade from West Elm.

Love this gray hutch from Layla Grace.

For those of you who have some serious cash to spend, there is this beautiful Gustav Gray children's furniture set from Posh Tots.

Or if your cash flow is more in line with mine, then perhaps this more affordable Ikea option in dark charcoal gray.  This vanity would make a perfect desk for a child.  You can see the entire Edland line from Ikea here.

And yes even our beloved Pottery Barn is riding the gray train with their PB Teen line.  Check out just one of their new bedding styles for boys.  Gray, of course.

I have been trying to find a way to transform our room into some sort of grey and maybe yellow retreat for the last year, I just haven't found the right bedding yet. Love all of your images!
