Trend Watch: Grey Days

Guest Post from Kelly LaPlante of Standard Magazine

In case you haven't noticed, the past few years have elevated charcoal tones to their well-deserved rank on the color wheel—it is fair to say that charcoal is The New Neutral. To thank for this ascension, we have the economy, the war and a bunch of other ho-hum relics from the Bush years. As the world becomes a brighter place again we actually won't be straying away from our love of the dreary...we'll just be having more fun with it.

Joining our favorite neutral will be punchy patterns (West Elm's organic bedding collections for this fall are teaming with charcoal patterns!) and colorful splashes. (Check out Industrial Sleek Furniture by Wes Ben to see how industrial grays become absolutely stunning with a few colorful embellishments!)
