The rich gray in the nubby cotton is echoed in the headboard, making for a pleasing backdrop to the room’s brighter shades—which would have been overwhelming against a lighter canvas.

“I’m using gray as the neutral instead of black or white or beige. It’s sort of muddy, and it makes the other colors come alive. I use it a lot with reds and yellows and pinks. It adds energy to the other colors.” —Tony Stavish

I have to say that the pieces chosen are individually appealing, but I do not find the room designs shown inspiring in the least. They don't seem to have a clear vision, focal points, nor dream-like quality.
