Sun and Rain: A Grey & Yellow Colour Scheme
Everywhere we look, we’ve been seeing yellow and grey tones, particularly in contemporary home décor items. We love the way the pop of canary yellow looks against a neutral and elegant grey background.
The warm/cool juxtaposition is contemporary and seasonable throughout the year, acting as a sophisticated foundation for homes big and small. We’ve rounded up five of our favourite grey, yellow, or grey and yellow items for the home, any of which will serve to infuse a bit of low key elegance to your space.
When it comes to bedding, it can be really difficult to find pieces that both genders can agree on, but grey is a lovely middle ground. These French Connection linens are appropriate for both masculine and feminine spaces, depending upon how the rest of the room is furnished. Perhaps most importantly, the sheets from French Connection are made of super soft cotton, so you’ll be cozy throughout the night. We love the tie details, which are a thoughtful adornment to otherwise simple linens.
While you’re there, check out French Connection’s new blue and white dinner plates, which would be lovely in a grey and yellow colour scheme.
What’s not to love about this typographic print? The simplicity of the sans serif font and the contrast of the grey and yellow are appealing on every level. In addition, we’re all about supporting independent artists like those who sell their wares on Etsy. Prints of artwork are an excellent way to introduce colour and personality to your home without spending a lot of money. Also, if you’re not totally sure about going for the grey and yellow palette, a subtle piece like this one may help you to see how the colours work in your space.

If you’re obsessed with interior décor (as we are), you’ll know that ikat prints are hot right now. There’s something about their tribal appeal that makes a space feel grounded and cozy. Combine an ikat print with the yellow and grey palette and we’re sold. This pillow is the perfect way to change up your colour scheme for a little while without completely changing your space. Swap out your living room throw pillows while you’re in love with this palette, and you won’t feel guilty if your tastes change further down the line, giving your couch a new look and feel without the hassle of buying a new one.
