Figure grise(Tête en gris)
Alberto Giacometti                         
                                        

If I see everything in gray, and in gray all the colors which I experience and which I would like to reproduce, then why should I use any other color? I've tried doing so, for it was never my intention to paint only with gray. But in the course of my work I have eliminated one color after another, and what has remained is gray, gray, gray!.
Alberto Giacometti
Si veo todo en gris, y en el gris todos los colores que experimento y me gustaría reproducir, ¿entonces porqué usaría otro color? He intentado hacerlo, porque nunca fue mi intención pintar sólo con gris. Pero en el transcurso de mi trabajo, he eliminado los colores uno tras otro, y el que ha perdurado es ¡gris, gris, gris!
Alberto Giacometti

Grey is one of the colors that I use the most, especially when it comes to clothes, furniture and professionally. People don't usually pick it as their favorite color because it's associated with sadness or depression. In my case, however, grey is the perfect wildcard for any occasion, it looks good with anything because complementary colors forms grey.  Black & white, red & green, blue & orange, yellow & green and so on. 

And you, how much grey do you wear? 

El gris es uno de los colores que mas utilizo, especialmente a la hora de vestirme, decorar mi casa y por sobre todo en mi profesión. La gente por lo general no elige el gris como color favorito porque evoca tristeza y depresión, pero para mi el gris es un comodín. Va con todo porque todos los colores complementarios lo forman: blanco y negro, verde y amarillo, azul y naranjo, etc.

Y tu, cuanto gris usas?


I wish nothing but big smiles to you!
Les deseo grandes sonrisas para todos! 



Big hugs!
¡Abrazos!


Inés

  10. I used to wear more beige, cream and camel as my favourite neutrals but for the last couple of years I've also bought various shades of grey - it's so versatile, stylish and easy to wear. As always this is a beautiful post with so much inspiration and gorgeous photos.
