Gray is currently the most known neutral shade and interior designers have preferred it for the last few years. Whereas shades such as black, silver, and white are commonly used with gray, why not use a different, brighter shade with it such as a yellow hue? In most of the modern homes, you will find the interior beaming with one of the shades of gray.
However, you can make your home outstanding by incorporating pops of gorgeous yellow that will work wonders in summer and throughout the year too. Modern, playful, and yet classy, the gray and yellow combination strikes a good balance between the snazzy and the sophisticated.
A gray living room looks both stylish and formal. While gray is a neutral color, it can be very attractive and beautiful when you combine it with a bright color such as yellow. And since gray isn't so dynamic, you should include certain focal points in the room. For instance, a zebra rug with yellow marks will make a fantastic addition to the gray living room.
There are several ways to incorporate the yellow and gray color combination in your living room. A great way is to let gray be the backdrop while using yellow accents on your throw pillows, chairs, fresh flowers, and vases to brighten up your space. The approach is not only cost effective but also simple. It enables you to switch from one color scheme to another without any difficulty.
Using a gray and yellow color scheme doesn't really mean that you will commit to it in the long term; you can change it anytime. However, the mild yellow shade gives the accent wall a classy look when combined with light gray.
Typically, a light gray background works well with brighter yellow accents. Nevertheless, you can still use deeper grays to come up with a warmer and bigger space. This strategy works effectively in predominantly cold areas or in winter when darker hues play a significant role to your living room’s overall ambiance.
When using yellow and gray, the most important thing is to ensure there is proper color coordination. This is best achieved through the furniture and other fittings in your living room. For example, a dark gray couch with light yellow pillow throws creates an interesting contrast in the room.
Besides, you can use a carpet that’s gray in color with a few yellow marks. This will not only make your living room glamorous, but it will also create the best color coordination between your carpet, furniture and the accent walls. Some homeowners go ahead to paint the ceiling with light gray. Why not go for blinds that are gray in color too?
When the carpet, furniture and accent wall look all gray, you may want to include a few more focal points such as yellow flowers in a vase at different sections of the room, awesome photographs in yellow frames and even some wall papers with yellow color. It is amazing to see how creative you can get when it comes to using gray and yellow colors in your home. In fact, you can apply similar color tactics in your bedroom as well.
