Grey is the New Black

April 8, 2016

bathroom-grey-cabinet-quarterfoil-blue-white-shower-curtainWell not quite, but the colour “grey” continues to remain strong because it is so versatile.

Whether the colour is a warm or cool shade, dark or light, grey can be that neutral.  As we invest in our homes we want the design(s) we chose to not only look great, but last the test of time. Nevertheless, those trends that are able to do this – are gold (or rather grey).

So, add white or black or your favourite pop colour it’s all good.  Grey is perfect for moody dining rooms to create an intimate space, and yet an ideal selection for a serene beach house. And grey is not just for walls, think about cabinetry, sofas, chairs, pillows, should I go on. There are so many options and combinations that make me happy.

I could go on…  try it, we recommend it… Kathleen Steele Design approved.


A Transformation for Sure!

This master bathroom is coming out of 1980’s and is wonderful.

OMG – this master bathroom could not be turning out any more perfect! My client really wanted to update this 1980’s bathroom. We have chosen a curved drop in tub, glass shower doors and walls, and traditional floor tiles.
I went light on the walls – cloud white – love how it looks…so elegant. The cabinet will be white white with quartz counter top. Wait ’til you see the sconces and mirror!

Loving Our Lighting at the Condo

They sparkle and glow with just a perfect touch of Gold.

How spectacular are the pendant fixtures above the peninsula?  When these lights are off they have a white and sliver look, but wait when they are turned on these lights glow a soft gold. The mercury globes are perfect combination with the white cabinets, stainless steel and black appliances.  Love them.

And the dinning room fixture! It has circle and crystal rock hanging chains -with the white shade.  It adds interest and fun styling to the dinning room table that is yet to come. Lighting is the style and personality of the room, we always need to spend the time and find it.
