the gr(a/e)y grrls

Why is there a correlation between having Gray/Grey as your surname and having fabulous design sense? There's the historical gobsmackery of Eileen Gray (architect, furniture designer), the minimal brilliance of Louise Gray (quilter), and the over-the-top undertones of Louisa Grey (interior designer). Louisa, in one of the photos below, even winks at this correlation by including an Eileen Gray-inspired lamp in a roomscape. All of these talented gr(e/a)ys have impeccable senses of style. Muted. Organic. Minimal. Warm yet cold. It's OK to have a gray day!
