Yellow And Gray



I know yellow and gray has been a hot combination for a while now but I’m still not tired of it. In fact, I think I love it more than ever! 


(The floor isn’t gray but close enough.)





I love the combination so much that I think I have to bite the bullet and get this striped bedding from Dwell Studio. This is a very big deal for me because I’ve only bought white linens for the past decade or more (with only one exception). How about you? Are you sick of this color combination yet?  This post is part of the Hooked on Houses blog party today.

    I am so with you! Completely in love with the wallpaper in the bathroom–such a great pattern.

  2. nope, i still love the color combo and you should totally get the sheet set from dwell studio (i’ve been drooling over it and i can live vicariously through you!)

    I laughed at this post because I actually gasped at your Dwell sheet purchase. As a fellow owner of only white bed sheets and linens…I couldn’t believe your courage. 😉

    The sheets are fabulous and FUN. And with Seattle’s sometime dismal weather, the fun aspect of design is sometimes needed.

    Hi, there! Thanks so much for the comment on my site 🙂 Looks like we’re in similar stages of the design game – planning but not really able to implement a whole lot, yet. The “big picture” is awfully fun, though, isn’t it?

    Thanks again! And best wishes with making your new house a home!


  5. I love it! I’ve been adding some yellow around my house and it just makes me happy. I think that yellow tub is fun!

    Thank you for this! I think yellow is one of the hardest colors to decorate with, it can look washed out at times. Going a deeper yellow is much nicer!

  7. The living room with the zebra rug — I love it so much I could marry it!

    Love, love yellow interiors in pictures, but in my home I’m afraid I would have to wear sunglasses…, the striped bedding from Dwell Studio though is awesome, stripes is another thing I love, it’s just so nautical (to me anyway).

    A perfect match! That first snapshot makes me drool and the acid pop of the chair set against that incredible slate-toned wall, holy cow!

    I say go for it with the bedding, it’s not white, but still subtle and fun. Dwell makes beautiful colors and patterns, I just got a set of sheets for my babes new big boy bed and I love them!

  16. I am ALL about that Dwell bedding! I have two lovely yellow and grey suzani pillows that are currently in the living room, but I think I have to get those striped sheets, pair them with the pillows, and go all out yellow and grey in the bedroom. Perfection!

    • Anne – I have a yellow and grey flowered pillow on my reading chair and just bought a grey and white one and want to pair both of them with the sheets! Let’s both post pics of our yellow and grey bedrooms when we’re done!

  17. Welcome to all of you arriving from Desire to Inspire! Thanks so much for visiting!

  18. I am very much smitten with the colour combo of yellow and grey. which I am planning on doing in my new bedroom. great post.

    thanks for stopping by my blog! hope to see you again soon. I will be stopping by your blog, very inspirational!

    I love that bed!! Yellow is steadily climbing the ranks on my personal color scale. Not sure if I’m ready to completely embrace it in my decorating just yet, but its making its way into my wardrobe. Who knows? These images are all so pretty!

  20. Rachel says:

    I am completely hooked on anything gray and yellow right now.. I think it’s here to stay for a bit! Love that striped bedding!

  21. Megan says:

    I love the first photo and the last one with Dwell Studio bedding!

  22. Jessica says:

    Well, I think it goes without saying that I love this combination. Although color trends come and go, I think this one has staying power. You should def. get the Dwell bedding…it is amazing.


  23. Jessica – I just found your comment in my spam box for some reason so I’m sorry it didn’t get published automatically . . . Anyway, I am about to order the bedding and I have you to thank for this find. 🙂 Do you have this bedding? I actually emailed Dwell because in some of the pics, the gray looked more like a brown (which I don’t want). I’m waiting to hear back . . .

  24. […] the right bank on April 20, 2009 My previously discussed love of yellow led to a love of yellow and gray and it seems that that has now led to a love of yellow and gray with a pop of red. Will this […]
