oyster gray

ostrea edulis – wikipedia

While illustrating this home, I fell in love with this gray color, which reminded me of “oysters” which I heart.  One can imagine returning here after a day of errands, and settling down to a divine dinner of oyster stew served on a lovely dish with crackers on the side and some sort of frothy brew to wash it all down.   Oysters on the half-shell, oysters “rockafella”- rolled oysters….and the list goes on for all the various ways one can enjoy oysters. (my apologies to those of you who do not have a penchant for oysters!)

 Suddenly, I am loving all these gray casted tones and then the pop of the red oxblood door. 

Are you feeling gray, or could it be all the 7th gray and rainy day.  As my husband left early to play soccer, he reported, “another oyster gray day!”
