Guest Post: Design Shuffle

Hey friends, Im a little ashamed that this is my first post  (guest post) of the week. I just finished up a graduate course and had to get a BIG assignment done. Im excited, we have Mari from a great site called Design Shuffle, to share some gray and yellow inspiration. Two colors that are, in my opinion, perfect together.


Hi, everyone! It's Mari, a writer from Design Shuffle a fabulous site that brings together designers and design lovers to showcase projects and share interior design inspiration. I'm so excited to be visiting Design Blooms as a guest blogger. Today's post is about a lovely color combination—gray and yellow. It is said that opposites attract and that is surely true of a gray and yellow palette. As you'll see, together the color of sunshine and a stormy neutral can make a stunning impact from the front door to the bath and everywhere in between. I hope these beautiful spaces will inspire lots of interior design ideas for you. Enjoy!


Colorful front doors offer a glimpse into what is to come inside a home. This deep sunny yellow is a perfect punch of color against the gray painted exterior. Wouldn't you love to step through this door?

Gray and Yellow

From pale yellow on the wall and sofa pillow to the deep golden velvet on the chaise lounge, the contrast with pale grays is lovely and makes for a comfortable and inviting feel in this living space.


This bright happy space has become one of my favorite eat-in kitchen designs. The gray and black of the wallpaper and over-cabinet storage work beautifully with the shiny yellow cabinets and pendant lights over the table.



A gray wall with golden accents and a deep yellow sofa with dark gray decorative pillows create appealing visual impact in this contemporary living room. I love the texture on the pillows and unexpected shapes of the shelves.


Tall windows draped in yellow-trimmed gray and yellow floral panels are a gorgeous background for eclectic furnishings and accessories. Touches of blue are interesting additions to this interior design. Is this stunning space stirring up any living room ideas?



A gray and golden yellow color palette is a lovely choice for a modern living room. Chunky stone lamp, soft velvet upholstery and interesting patterned textiles bring this room together elegantly.



Sunny accents bring this gray and black cotemporary bedroom to life. I'm smitten by that amazing faux fur throw. What lovely decorating ideas this bedroom inspires!



A deep yellow barn door is a bold choice to separate this yellow and gray bedroom from the adjoining bath. I love that oval stand-alone tub and gray wall in the bathroom.

I'm not a fan of yellow, but there's something about the combination of grey & yellow that really appeals to me :-) I'd definitely like to walk through that bright yellow front door, because I'm sure on the other side of that door is a fun & fresh home :-)
