Designing With Metal, Cowhide And Glass

Some might say shades of gray are 'mature' and even perhaps 'depressing' - but really, things are changing lately for 'gray' - especially in design circles - 'gray is the new chocolate', and of course, chocolate was the new black. Black of course - timeless and always in style. Translation: gray is pretty popular right now. And here's another great thing for gray - we've got beautiful gray cowhide rugs!

It's being used in all sorts of rooms - and with several accompanying colors - such as the new Pantone color of the year - Tangerine tango - and others. It's also fun to stay sort of monochromatic - using varying values of gray- to let them work together to play light and shadow in your space.

  • Pair your gray pieces with shiny metals and open windows for a modern look.
  • For a more traditional look, use rich, rustic woods in your design.
  • If you're going for shabby-chic, look for antique pieces of all colors, as long as it's properly 'aged' looking.
  • Make use of glass - for example with the coffee table - so that you can see through to the natural pattern of your cowhide rug.
