It is human to be inspired by gray horizons, the stillness before the first drop on a rainy day, or the fog rolling in on the shore and blanking out the world from sight in its wake. There is something intimate and poetic about these particular moments that influence great design, which is why (much to our delight) there are so many styles that try to capture these very feelings in their final results.

This dining space above is just one of those works, which we think expresses these notions deftly. The calming grays in its palette and subtle details win us over and plunge us into that rainy-day-spent-indoors mentality. Below are three ways our staffers would try to go about recreating that feeling ourselves—stormy grays and all.

spare details

This nousDECOR staffer saw the value in the simplicity of this space, and went with it. By picking out just a few key items—the glass pendant, the blue vase, a plant—she creates a solid translation of this dining area's impact through minimalism.

pieces with flair

In another version, geometric items and pieces with flair work their way in. We love the eye-catching details that complement but don't overwhelm the space.

lightness

In a third version, the sense of lightness is imbued through lots of glass pieces and colors like blue and gray. Less angles in items on the whole makes for a softer iteration of the design.
