Carrol & Paige's "Classic Gray and Yellow" Room
Classic Gray and Yellow
Charcoal gray, sunny yellow, and crisp white
My teenager daughter fell in love with the graphic Amy Butler bedspread. We coupled the pattern with the charcoal gray wall for high contrast. To warm up the space, we added yellow in equally bold patterns. She wanted a mural on the wall and the arch of the wind blown tree gently frames her low, loungey bed.
Defining your color palette is a must. Three colors work well. Let one color play the lead with the rest following. For example, yellow is the dominant color in this room, taking up nearly 2/3 of room. The charcoal gray is limited to the accent wall. The white serves as a needed place for your eye to rest in this bright and graphic room. Even with a focused color palette, there's still room for pops of color like the kelly green dresser or turquoise lamp.
