Arren Williams is the name, and I'm a stylist, editor and trend reporter. You'll catch my work regularly popping up in print in the likes of the National Post, House & Home and elsewhere. I'm also a guest expert on Citytv's CityLine, and you can occasionally find me on HGTV as well as on ABC 7 News in Chicago.

To keep things fun I've tapped a couple of friends - Julia Black and Jenn Hannotte - to contribute their views on design too. Enjoy!

So you say grey or gray?

Which is it? Unfortunately I tend to flip back and forth, which confuses both spellcheck and any editor I might be working with, lol. Whatever, it's a colour that people seem to have a penchant for these days. We'll be picking a dark smoky tone, either Palais Royal or Chrome from Ralph Lauren Paint, for the walls and ceiling of our basement media room. And I have a bit of a thing for grey/gray glass too - Somewhere in a box in storage sits a bunch of (fingers crossed) well wrapped vintage and new art glass that will be making an appearance shortly in the new place...

In the meantime, here's a swanky set of grey/gray glass vases from BoConcept who, sadly for me at least, have yet to open a store in Toronto; though they do have one for the lucky folks in Vancouver.

Canadian "grey" for me...we recently painted our bedroom Stonington Gray & I absolutely love, love, love it! Peter Fallico's Home to Flip featured Sico's Very Pale Grey, which I thought was nice as well. Be sure to post pics of your media room when it is done! We all look forward to seeing your house transform.

Anyone got any other favourite grey paint choices? I'd love to hear the hits and misses that folks have had - I wonder; did everything turn out beautifully, or did it your pick go all icky and institutional looking once you slapped it up onto the wall?

Cheers, Arren
