After posting earlier this week about “lemon sorbet” – the shade Benjamin Moore says is the 2013 color of the year – I’ve been looking for some yellow and gray inspiration.
But I was inspired by the pretty dining room in the Benjamin Moore post to look for more.
One of the most interesting rooms I found was the living room from the HGTV Green Home, shown at right and below.
I love the gray sofa and the pillows are just gorgeous.
I also like the art in the photo below and that warm rug. So pretty.
But – and this has nothing to do with gray and yellow – check out that terribly uncomfortable looking chair by the fireplace. I think I remember seeing that thing at Anthropologie. I didn’t like it then and don’t like it now!
The living area below – a photo from Benjamin Moore – is also striking.
In this case, the sofa is yellow – a bold yellow – with gray pillows. And I love the yellow tucked into the display boxes.
In the room below from Better Homes and Gardens, gray is by far the dominate color.
But just a few touches of yellow really brighten up the space and keep it from becoming gloomy.
And check out the unusual color combination below: Pink, yellow and gray. The photo is from Sherwin-Williams.
I’m not sure I’d be willing to do this in my own home. But I think it’s great for a tween room.
Finally, I like that in the photo at right – from BHG – that the drapes are the only touch of yellow in the space.
The green, blue and purple shades keep the space interesting.
What do you think?
Would you try a yellow and gray color scheme?
Are you as crazy about it as I am?
