Decorating with Grey & Yellow

Mixing neutral greys with shades of yellow creates cheerful and sophisticated interiors, they complement each other perfectly. Grey on its own is very soothing and extremely versatile but for stunning results; mix it with shades of yellow.

Pattern helps to bring this combination alive. For retro and Scandi enthusiasts remember to keep the lines clean; simple patterns and geometrics work best. If you are aiming for more of a country chic look, then try adding some floral prints to the scheme.

Always try out different paint samples and fabric swatches before you make your final selection. The light will change throughout the day and this will affect how the colours appear in your room.

Accessorise with chunky knits and wicker; don’t be afraid to mix textures because this helps to add interest to the room. I’m a big admirer of the chunky knits and rugs that are around at the moment; they work with so many different styles and just add a little bit of cosiness.
