Obsession: Orange and Gray

Gray is my new favorite color.  I am obsessed.  I could decorate my place all in gray and wear nothing but gray clothes.  Since neither of those are in the budget, I've been on the hunt for the perfect gray nail polish.  The fabulous Mrs. Obama caused a stir recently by wearing gray nail polish during her speech at the convention.

I adore her nail polish, but I had my eye out for gray nail polish long before she was spotted wearing it.  I read some stories about how shocking it is that a woman over 30 - and a public figure at that - would wear gray nail polish.  What hogwash.  I can tell you why Mrs. O wore it - it's pretty!  Being over 30 or 40 or 50.... has nothing to do with it.  Being a girl is fun at any age.  I finally found the perfect gray nail polish at Dots!  Only $1.00 a bottle!  And what's more, they had the perfect orange!  I love orange and gray together.

I love experimenting with nail polish, and it's a cost effective way to dress up an old outfit. Updating your look can be as simple that.  So before spending money you don't have on a new sweater, consider a new bottle of nail polish.  I am so in love with my orange and gray nails, I started thinking about this color scheme.  It's one of my favorites.  

I love how the concrete in this gorgeous loft is softened by the pops of orange and large amounts of white.

Love the orange accent wall with the concrete art installation and the mantel.  Above two images via Pangaea Interior Design.

I am a sucker for fashion photography, I adore the photo of the lady in the fabulous orange hat.  Also, that ottoman is incredible.  Image Max Kim-Bee via Desire to Inspire.  Want to see more of this gorgeous color scheme?  Click here.
