Add calmness to any room with an eye-catching color combo: yellow and gray, says designer Elaine Williamson with Elaine Williamson Designs.
“It’s so peaceful and calming –it’s just a really good combination,” says Williamson, adding that white added in can exude even more sophistication.
Need some ideas on how to mix in the color combo?
- Use gray as a base color on upholstered furniture, such as furniture with espresso-stained wood.
- Try a yellow throw pillow on a gray sofa.
