Cozy Cosy Gray Grey

In a Facebook post by House & Garden earlier this week they use the word "cosy" to describe a room.  Before I allowed myself to become bothered about what seemed a misspelling, I checked Google.  Sure enough, "cozy" is just the American spelling of the word.  With that, I was reminded that my favorite spelling of another word crosses over that same line.  The American spelling of the word that describes a foggy day or a charcoal shade is gray to Americans.  I prefer "grey" which is the English spelling. 

Spell either however you like.  Here are some rooms for which all four are good keywords.

We see a lot of rooms now with beds more undressed but I think the dust ruffle helps to warm the room.  I especially like the use of the creamy white and off-white fabrics against the darker walls. 
Often the ceiling in a beach house is blue, a shade of turquoise to emulate the reflection on water.  But the sea is sometimes gray as well.

This one is noted as located on Long Island.  Most likely The Hamptons.   
I'm not used to seeing formal draperies on the windows of beach houses but I can see that these would be great buffers from a storm.  I like the simplicity of the bedding.  No ruffle.  Appropriately exposing dust bunnies and ghosties, said Mrs. Muir.   
Since my little beagle has found and adopted the faux fur throw I usually bundle up in to watch TV, I've had to go shopping. 

I especially like this stack of warmers.
I gave up a knitted one like the white one to a design once.  I still wish I'd kept it.  I think I've settled my search on one I saw on QVC from Elen DeGeneres's line.  Am I the only one who thinks she's making a joke with the name of her line?  ED?     
Snuggle up.  Stay cozy.
