zara's shades of grey

as some of you may know, i have a thing for greys and taupes. my handbags, my favorite shoes, my sheets, and my favorite wall colors are all in these shades. when i put together interior designs, i really enjoy layering different neutral shades to create warmth, softness and elegance. so i had a major swooning session as i experienced zara home's fall/winter '07 collection. i absolutely love the way they layered textures (some roughness, some sparkle, some smoothness) while using neutral colors. especially those greys! i'd just love to put almost everything from this collection in my own home. . . . . keeping the dream alive:

side-note: i know this is from their spring '07 collection, but seeing as how i have a life-long infatuation with the golden ratio, and therefore with anything in a spiral pattern, this just had to get blogged too. someday i will have a home with a spiral staircase, there's just no getting around that. ;o)

OMG...these photos are amazing! I love grey too; I just repainted my bath two shades of grey, bought new suede grey shoes, and a grey handbag. Grey is beginning to replace brown in my life because of its versatility and sophistication.

zara home is absolutely incredible. I can't think of a single design aesthetic that so matches what I wish I could create.
