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.


Custom Distressed Bedroom Furniture

Feminine, Classy Bedroom

This bedroom pictured below needed a major upgrade! Woodmaster Woodworks was there to help. The owner wanted to do a shiplap accent wall where the bed goes; we LOVE shiplap, so we were definitely on board. The color is a grayish-blue and it truly just gives the entire room the coziest vibe, and makes you want to lay in bed all day and watch Netflix! The whole feel is very serene, and that's exactly what your bedroom should be - it should be a retreat. 

Now, this photo gives you a closer look at what we did to the owner's bed side furniture. The night stands were stained to begin with, so we decided to paint them a similar color to the shiplap wall, and give it a distressed look. The end result is just fabulous; they look brand new but homey at the same time. The homeowner's decorations really tied the whole look together. The delicate pinks with the crisp white comforter makes us want to move right in! 

Switching sides: this is the view from the bed. Woodmaster Woodworks created this custom built-in unit for the TV, plenty of shelves, and wait for it.... a dog crate space! Yes - a built-in space for the homeowners dog crate. We absolutely love this idea because now the crate is not sticking out like a sore thumb, and you won't trip over it anymore! Custom cabinetry and carpentry is key if you really want the end product to look original to the home. You cannot even tell that this wasn't built-in from day one. Thank you for reading and we hope you enjoyed!

Inspirational Kitchens

With just a little time spent on Pinterest, you can find kitchen inspiration for days! We have put together a list of some of our favorite looks. Which one best fits your style? 

Brick Back Splash:

This rustic look is to die for; especially designed in a herringbone pattern. We have a feeling that this warm style is the new classic and it will be around for a while!

Glass Cabinets:

We love the open feel glass cabinets give a kitchen. Paired with the marble counter tops and glamorous back splash, you can't go wrong with this look. 

Mint:

If you find yourself pining over eclectic style homes on Pinterest, maybe a mint kitchen would be just right for you. Pair it with a butcher block island counter top to tone it down a bit. Classy yet fun and unexpected, this gorgeous color will definitely be a conversation starter in your home.

Open Shelving:

Are you a fan of the show "Fixer Upper"? If so, you've seen a lot of open shelving in their kitchens. This look will put the final touches on a farmhouse style kitchen. Open shelves are perfect for putting your best decor and china on display.

Two Islands:

This is a rare kitchen feature, but who says you should stop at one island?! If you're an avid chef or entertainer, this would definitely come in handy. We say, if you have the space for two islands, go for it!
