The difference is ever so slight—sort of like when a friend gets a trim and you look at them, not able to pinpoint what exactly has changed, but knowing that whatever it is, it's a great thing. And while Rita went with a soft gray on her walls, her former Domino colleague, interior designer, Tom Delavan, chose a bit more urban-feeling shade in his kitchen renovation. But, it wasn't an easy shade to find, especially because he planned to pair it with lots of soft-shaded wood: "I think wood works with gray," Tom explained. "I wanted something that was between gray and brown: too gray and it goes battleship; too brown and it goes too early-'90s. I took two days of looking at colors to find the right one, but when you do, it changes everything." Does it ever, Tom! Check out his teeny (but oh-so-chic) kitchen:
Tom's preferred gray? Pratt & Lambert's Woodwitch. Fab, right?
