A grey and red interior designed by Mary McDonald

Everything looks better with a hint of grey. As an accent or dominant color, all shades of gray are being used in unique and inspiring ways. From charcoal to dove, no grey is outre.

What a FABULOUS post - I love every single one of the images - doesn't hurt that I also love gray! Of course love the Mary McDonald shot - does she ever do anything I don't like? And the new Chelsea textiles Lounge Chair as well as the Eric Cohler print? And totally love the Schumacher - well, like I said, love it all!!

Thanks for this post, Marissa. I for one, generally forget about grey in decorating...and it is so worth remembering!

I love everything in this post - of course the Mary McDonald room (is there anything she ever does that I don't like?), the new Lounge Chair, the beautiful Eric Cohler and graphic Schumacher fabrics - and well everything!

Every room either needs gray, black or red to settle into itself. Of course, then there is turquoise. Great post.

Fantastic post! I got some great ideas from it. Love the monogramed table linens -- the charcoal and white really sings.

Hey Marisa!
I'm loving grey lately too, colors look so nice with grey--in clothing too. I love those Dwell studio pictures too...
