Gray is an unusual choice of color for most homeowners, but it can create the perfect setting for an industrial-meets-mid-century-modern style studio unit, specifically the one owned by Wilmer Lopez and Thor Balanon. Using gray walls and floors not only creates a raw, unrefined look, it also complements the signature shapes and textures often seen in mid-century modern furniture.  

 As the home is designed with predominantly gray-on-gray scheme, color and patterns are used sparingly. Apart from the orange piping on a Space Encounters chair in the living room, a red accent chair in the bedroom, and a few other accessories, the studio is kept bare. The simplicity has helped open up the space, making it seem more roomy and spacious than it really is.
