Grey is a popular choice these days when decorating your home. It's the new fave neutral shade that will create a calm and soft atmosphere in your space. A great starting point or choice of paint colour when designing a room as it works so well on its own or as a backdrop when used alongside a spectrum of other colour shades as it will not clash or compete.
I'm a huge fan of grey, right from the softest paler tones on the whiter end of the scale down to the darker murkier masculine greys on the other end. In this post I'm going to be looking at grey, but not in its solidarity, I'll be taking a look at how it works together so brilliantly to pack a punch when styled with bright and beautiful sunny yellow.
The grey and yellow colour combo can be applied across all interior design styles, from classical, contemporary to country but using these shades together will bring a contemporary edge to the space. The key when pulling these two together is to use shades of grey and yellow in the same hue and tone that compliment in each other and create a harmonious scheme. Introducing black and white into the space will also work to distract the eye and prevent everything looking too "matchy-matchy".
If you're felling a little yellow bellied you don't have to go all out and crazy with yellow everywhere but by dropping in a cushion, throw or accessory into a grey scheme it will change the frequency in the room and bring in a little bit of that rare sunshine indoors while also upping the style stakes.
For those braver and bolder, go for it with wallpaper or a bright yellow sofa or armchair as your feature piece and decorate with grey, black and white in solid colour and pattern to balance out the scheme and create contrast and drama.
I've put together a young and fun, contemporary grey and yellow inspired living room below taking inspiration again from nature with a little nod to some cute furry creatures to bump up fun factor and make the space even cheerier. All the pieces I've selected can be sourced on the high street or via the suppliers online.
Till next time..
