Greige - The New Neutral

By now, you've probably heard the term "greige" used when it comes to interior design. In case you haven't heard, greige is used to describe a "new" color that is taking over homes across the globe. It's a mix between gray and beige - ultimately the perfect neutral. 

Greige is possibly the coziest color we've ever laid our eyes on. The most common use of greige is obviously paint. It brings this earthy, warm feel to any room, and you can decorate with any accent color under the sun because it's so versatile. At Woodmaster Woodworks, we like to think outside the box. So, we've gathered some of our favorite unique uses of greige that are NOT walls... 

Greige floors. If you can't decide between light or dark floors, go with greige. When choosing a floor color, keep in mind that there will most likely be a lot of it. It needs to be pleasing to the eye and match almost anything. If you're looking for a modern floor color, greige is your best choice, and there are so many variations of it!

Greige furniture is timeless. Especially if you have a stone fireplace in your living room, griege couches, chairs, and pillows will match perfectly. Griege is a stoney and earthy color, so if you're having trouble picking a color scheme for your living room, and you want it to feel welcoming, you can't go wrong with this new classic. 

Last but not least, we love these griege kitchen cabinets. To stand out from the white cabinets trend, choose this gorgeous tone with black hardware. It's totally different from your traditional cabinets, but safe at the same time. Greige cabinets are a fool proof way to cozy up your kitchen. We hope you enjoyed reading the Woodmaster Woodworks blog! See you next time.

A Thankful Spirit: Beds, Clothing, and Memories

With the arrival of November also comes the arrival of a thankful spirit.  November (and the holidays) are a time to reflect on all that we have and to give to those that are less fortunate.  In light of this this, I want to start the month by reflecting on a few things that we have to be thankful for...

1. Warm Bed

Beds are wonderful.  They offer a cozy place to rest our heads each night.  Beds come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can even be dressed up with the right headboard.  

Here are unique headboards to consider for your sleepy retreat.

2. Clothing

Clothing is definitely a reason to be thankful.  Aside from providing warmth and protection, it also is an avenue to show the unique personality of each individual.  With this in mind, be sure to take good care of what clothing you do have.  

Closets provide space to keep your clothing from getting squished, damaged, or dirty.

3. Memories

This day and age we have the opportunity to travel.  We are able to visit with loved ones and explore new places.  Our experiences mold us.  Usually, all we are left with are memories, pictures, and souvenirs.

Be sure to display those memories!!  

Built-Ins, even in the bedroom, can be a wonderful way to remind us not to forget our pasts.  Use built-ins for books, souvenirs, pictures, or any other trinket or treasure.
