Yellow And Gray Bedding

Yellow And Gray Bedding

I’ll just bet you are looking at that intro picture and thinking what in the world is she showing me flowers for when what I want is to see some ideas for yellow and gray bedding! Well, I have not completely lost my mind (there are parts I haven’t had contact with in years but I digress). Before I get into discussing the decorating of a bedroom using these two colors, I wanted to make a point of how we can often be inspired by the colors of nature. Notice in that photo how striking those yellow blossoms look against the gray background and the grays and browns of the limbs? Nature can be one of our best inspirations when it comes to choosing colors for a rooms decor and that includes the bedroom.

One of the easiest ways to make a bedroom look fresh and new is to change the bedding. That can be the start of changing the overall look of the room, too. No matter whether you have a large room or a small one, the bed is generally the focal point. So, let’s look at ways that yellow and gray can start us on the road of making that room look totally different.

The image above is quite contemporary in design with just small amounts of yellow. With the walls painted in the gray it has a cool (as in temperature) feel to it. This look could be absolutely what you are hoping for. To brighten it up a little you can take the same bedding set and add yellow sheets instead of white or gray. You could also choose to have the walls in a soft yellow which suddenly transforms the entire room into a bright and cheerful space. You could keep the gray walls and add touches of yellow like lamps or picture frames bringing out more of the yellow in the bedding. It all started with the colors in the bedding, though.

In the set above the bedding is actually yellow and white and quite bold. Toning it down with gray sheets and different shapes of pillows in patterns that incorporate gray and yellow give it a fun and modern look. If you choose a comforter set like this one, having yellow walls might just be too much. Choosing a soft gray wall or even a medium gray like the one in the picture makes for a more dramatic look. If you would rather the room has a more country look that can be easy to achieve. Choose patterns for the pillows that are more country in style. A fun gray checked pattern, gray pillow ticking or a subtle gray plaid will work. Put some lace edging around a few of them. Again, it starts with the bedding and you make it have the look you want by the accessories you choose to put in the room. The pictures on the wall can take on a more country look by being framed in an antique style frame instead of the modern plain frames. It is those little touches that transform one look into a totally different look.

When the budget is tight or even if it isn’t some great places to visit for accessories or even furniture are flea markets, garage sales and antique shops. You can find pieces of furniture to add to the room that could be painted to fit your yellow and gray color scheme. Lamps, pictures, vases and all sorts of items that might have been used for one purpose in the past can be brought home to become  a part of your new looking bedroom. Think outside of the box and find some creative and unique things to dress up the room and make it have your personality.
