Looking Forward

The Christmas Season has already come and gone and we find ourselves already looking forward to the New Year. The new year, with all its promise, always brings to mind those projects that were left unfinished so we thought a little inspiration would be helpful - starting with your walls.

Is your kitchen looking a little uninspiring? We are loving a patterned backsplash, and it you're a little leery, this black & white tile is the perfect option for the pattern-shy.

The easiest thing you can do to update your uninspiring walls is to paint them.  Try a stripe or a fabulous oversized wall stencil from one of the many stencil resources like Cutting Edge Stencils.

Or be bold with a great looking wallpaper like in designer Jamie Meares' space.

Maybe your walls are already perfect, or maybe you just need some decor to embellish . . . whatever you're looking for, we're sure to provide some inspiration.

Can't wait to see you. . . In The Gray!

Another one of our stellar artists, Ms. Allison Chambers, was recently featured in Charlotte Living. She is so talented and her colors are always inspiring.

We also want to extend a warm welcome to one of our newest merchants, Ms. Kimsioux Montgomery, her coffee table books make the perfect gift this Holiday Season!

Thanks to all of our merchants for a wonderful year!
