Shades of Grey…or Gray

January 25, 2008 at 6:30 pm 3 comments

When the bone-chilling deep freeze of January settles over Chicago, I usually find myself in a funk.  Because of this, the past week has been a rough one for me.  I’m trying not to let it spill over into the blog too much, but sometimes, it just can’t be helped.  Today at least I think I’m emerging out of the deep blues & beginning to dive into the hazy greys.  Or grays.  Here are some gorgeous grey goodies I found at the incomparable Jayson Home & Garden.

Antiqued Mercury Glass Urns-Jayson Home & Garden

St. Charles Lamp-Jayson Home & Garden

There’s more after the jump, including one of the sexiest & most masculine sideboards I’ve ever seen.

Hughes Coffe Table-Jayson Home & Garden

This rockin’ coffee table belongs to the same set as this tough-looking sideboard:

Why do I love this so much?  Is it because it looks like it might provide storage for medieval torture devices (Which, by the way, where do you put that stuff? It’s so clunky & cumbersome!) or because it’s so anti-Martha that it completely & utterly rocks.  Either way, it’s going in my castle in Ireland with an arrangement of pink hydrangeas in a clear glass vase setting on top to balance out the masculine vibe.  Love, love, love.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

    I’ll send some positive, warm with blue skies thoughts your way! BTW, my husband LOVED your wooden post a few posts back. That was definitely a guy post if ever there was one 🙂

    This will be random, But it’s ironic you used the title Shades of Grey, because there is a book out with that title by Jasper Fforde. A good read, and it fits your theme, you should read it if you get a chance 🙂 (I just did a blog on an appearance by Jasper Fforde promoting “Shades of Grey” last week. You should also read that if you get bored : (and yes, that was a shameless plug for myself)
