Shades of French Gray
Shades of gray are timeless… classic. In this magnificent Palais built by Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild from 1905 to 1912, several rooms are painted in varying shades of gray, and while our homes may not be this grand, we certainly could take colour inspiration home with us 100 years later.
It is not often that I wish I had my colour chips with me, but I used the white ticket as a reference. It is also important to consider that the Cote d’Azur daylight is much warmer and brighter than ours in Western Canada. This is a south facing room in the middle of October and our brightest day in July would not have the same quality of light.
