Completely intrigued by the combination of yellow & gray. Part calming and part energetic, it’s always sophisticated with a certain elegance.

  • All of these images are fabulous individually – and even better together like this! I do love the gray and yellow combination – I put a wedding inspiration board together with that palette a while back.

  • this collection is fantastic! I have almost zero yellow in my closet but I could certainly see it working around my house. I adore the idea of sunshine yellow! A brilliant trend.

  • I love this colour combo! Great eye candy ;)

  • Ooooo! That yellow trench coat is amazing, I’d love that!

    I remember my mom having a yellow kitchen back in the day and I loved how sunny and happy it felt!

    Have a great evening!

  • This is absolutely gorgeous! Lovely collection!

  • The Dwell bed is lovely! And so’s the long yellow dress.

  • yellow is such a great color! Thanks for sharing all these wonderful items!

  • How cheerful and inspiring! I really love the yellow trench coat. Gray is one of my faves as of late and will have to agree with Coco+Kelley and All the Best that gray and yellow is a fabulous combo.


  • i think you hit the nail on the head with why this combo is so appealing and just won’t go away! blending the soothing grey with a pop of yellow energy. what a perfect balance! thanks for the inspirational images!

  • I just did a post on gray and red…BUT the gray and yellow is so beautiful. As always, great post!

  • I just love this combo. I feel I’m in the midst of these 2 colors:

    grey or winter dullness & dreariness

    yellow for the spring trying to burst through…

  • Great post…stunning. Love the Karin Akesson.


  • Oh how I love yellow. Esp. the Paul Costello photo with that bed spread.

  • such an awesomely thorough grey and yellow round up…i’m so obsessed with this combo!

  • I just adore the yellow trench. It reminds me of the sun. I have a slight fetish with jackets and coats, they are one of the best accessories in my opinion.

    And I am loving that yellow is so “in” right now. It’s such a happy color!

  • LOVE this post! Soo gorgeous color combinations. I’m in the process of adding yellow to my predoninantly grey, white and black livingroom, and this is just so inspiering!! Got to start working on those yellow Sis Boom pillows now ;-)!!

  • I heart this color combination too. I especially love the trench and pump look and the DRW room!

  • adore the gray/yellow combo! so chic.
