stylish grey and yellow living room decor ideas cover

Grey and yellow are one of the most popular combos for various types of décor because it’s refreshing, vivid and matches various décor styles. This combo looks great for all kinds of spaces, from kitchens to bedrooms, and today I’d like to have a look how to rock these colors in a living room.

Living rooms in grey and yellow are very lively, refreshing and raise the mood because yellow reminds of the spring and summer, which is especially necessary in cold seasons when we lack sunlight. You can vary different shades of grey and different shades of yellow to achieve the effect you want. Choose subtle shades like dove grey or pale yellow for a calm and peaceful interior, and charcoal grey and neon yellow for daring bold interiors.

Try Different Shades Of Grey

Decorating with grey is a clear thing as this color is good for everything: walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, upholstery and accessories, just vary the shades to get what you like. If you want something airy and neutral, choose dove grey, if not – charcoal grey is right what you need. Black will also look good and contrasting with grey and yellow; if you want a lighter look and airy feel, add white or cream.

How To Infuse Your Décor With Yellow

As for yellow, this color is more difficult to use it right and not to get a tasteless result or not to make your living room too bold. If you already have a gray living room, you can add just some yellow accents that can be changed for other when you are tired of them: a console table, a couple of frames, a mantel, pillows and throws. You can also add some bold yellow artworks and stools or ottomans to enliven the room.

You can choose various shades of yellow to achieve various effects and create different ambiences. If you aren’t sure about bright shades, choose pale yellow, and it’ll look totally neutral. Bold yellow looks cool and contrasting with very light or very dark grey, and neon yellow, too. If you love sunlight and want a lot of yellow, make the whole room yellow and then just infuse it with grey as you wish.

Use textiles, artworks, simple furniture like chairs, stools, tables and lamps to accentuate the space because it’s the easiest and the most budget-friendly way.
