Color Series ~ Charcoal & Yellow

So far, I have shown you a few color schemes using the classic navy. Now I am moving on to another ultra-versatile color, charcoal gray. There are endless color combinations that will look good with this neutral, but I am starting with sunny yellow!

You may remember this image from domino, which featured this cheerful color scheme. The choice in tailored furnishings and a mustard-y yellow kept the room looking crisp and elegant:

This scheme could work well for many rooms, but I particularly love this color scheme for kitchens! For me, a kitchen should be a bright, happy space, the heart of one's home. I once lived in an apartment with a kitchen that had white cabinets, gray countertops and one accent wall painted the perfect shade of yellow, and it was my all-time favorite kitchen (even though it was pretty small.)

With that in mind, I thought I would re-create a sunny kitchen for this week's mood board:


If you like it, where would you use this color scheme?

So pretty! Gray and yellow have always been a favorite color scheme of mine. I just love the diamond marble backsplash and those fun yellow tufted stools you picked out! I think I might try this combo in a bedroom!
