Gray is the New Black

“Over the last year, gray has become a color on the rise, taking the design world by storm! We added new paint, cabinets, and carpet in gray tones, and are working on selecting new floor tile and countertop options that will be available soon!”
– Stacey Antonakos-Perez, Studio Manager

Gray has taken over the world of color trends in everything from hair dye to furniture, and is the biggest trend in modern contemporary and traditional home design. Gray-tones can be warm or cool, light or dark, and are a versatile neutral perfect to be paired with any color. Using vibrant color accents like sharp yellows or rich blues will draw attention and add excitement to your living space, and lighter blue and purple hues bring calmness and relaxation to any room.

We are offering new neutral gray selections to personalize your Florida home:
