Yellow and Gray Decor

I thrive on changing up the decor in my house, so I do it as often as I can! Whether it’s rearranging furniture, moving around accessories, adding color… you get the picture.

One of my favorite decorating color schemes is the combo of Yellow and Gray. I’m more of a fan of the muted yellows, but any shade of gray will do! I think the soft yellow goes great with a light gray all the way to a dark charcoal.  Here are 20 beautiful spaces that use yellow and gray –
