Yellow and Gray Bedroom

Everywhere I look, I see the color combo of yellow and gray, and I love it. I think it works great in a bedroom (I love gray in a bedroom, don't you?) -

I actually tried to do yellow/gray in one of our guest bedrooms, but it didn't quite work out. I couldn't find the right fabric combination that I liked...until now (although I've already gone red/gray in that bedroom).

I think this fabric combo below would be dynamite for a bedroom - and the fabrics (from Waverly) are all under $15/yard, so they should fit a smaller budget nicely.

I would use this floral fabric (Bliss Silver Lining) for an upholstered headboard and bedskirt, much like the photo above. I would keep my sheets classic white with perhaps a mustard colored blanket and a large decorative pillow in an accent color.

I would use this stripe (Sidewalk Stripe Silver Lining) to upholster an arm chair (like a wingback) and pair it with a small end table and floor lamp.

And I would use this fun geometric (Cross Section Charcoal) for curtains.

Pair the combo with some great art and lamps like the inspiration photo, and voila! Instant bedroom chic.


  1. I like that color combo! In the first picture it's almost an orangey yellow, oh so fun!

    I think grey is the new black and I'm still searching for a grey for my living room.

  2. Love this color combo. I have also been trying to use this in our guest bedroom without luck so I am adding turquoise in as well.

    I love gray and yellow, too. Especially like that geometic sample above.

  4. I am into Grey and yellow lately as well. In fact, did a post on it last week and today. And, as coincidence would have it I received a sample of Cross section in grey today from fabric.com with a 15% off coupon the price cannot be beat!

    I am off to check out that stripe. I really like it!

    I've got a fabric giveaway going on until Sunday if you are interested.

  5. That first bedroom is delish- love the colors!

  6. Still one of my favorite color combos, and yet, I haven't found that perfect concoction of patterns for my home, either. {sigh}

  7. I also love the color combo of gray and yellow!

    I just saw this gray striped chair on West Elm for just $99 and I love it!
