Though not an ensemble that I could or would want to personally wear, I find she inspires a moody and shy feeling. Perhaps a bit reclusive. The garden that forms up in my mind is not bright and sunny, but rather more contemplative, quiet and sequestered. A place I would be drawn to.

The Japanese garden at Ginkaku-ji was designed by the great landscape artist Soami. The sand garden of Ginkaku-ji seems to share a similar spirit.

The Silver Creek Garden in Bellingham WA, though of a completely different style, similarly catches the same mood. The color of the stone and the focus on it, makes for a garden that, like this model, has a hard edge that (to me) screams out for some softening.
I like the idea of breaking up the gray with some color.
Some of my favorite silver or silver accented plants would be beautiful in this silver gray garden.
Here are some silver gray accents that would take this garden right over the top….but maybe not all of them at once.
