A beautiful cloudy day conjures up thoughts of fresh-baked pies, jumpable puddles, a cozy cup of tea, and a good read. A cloudy sky is a great place to see all the new shades of gray on the color trend scene… heather, steely, gun-metal, dolphin, and pale gray. All of these pair up in a fresh way with our old friend, yellow…sunshine, lemon, golden, and everything in between. The mix of gray and yellow is unexpected, sophisticated, and nothing less than brilliant!
How to mix them though? Try a heavily textured gray fabric, on a chair or sofa, and add a nickel colored metal table, topped with a golden-yellow ceramic lamp. Look for fabrics that combine the two colors and use them as pillows. Build a mini vignette from a pale yellow leather chair, a thick gray shag rug, a scrubbed cream, and gray floor lamp. And don’t forget to add a tiny splash of hot pink, velvet purple, or lipstick red; just because!
