Bringing Some Sunshine to an Otherwise Grey Day

Happy Friday!

Half of the time when I find something on the web that I like, I wonder how I even found it in the first place.  So, it will be hard for me to retrace my steps, but one day I stumbled across the blog Made By Hickory Chair, the blog of furniture maker Hickory Chair.  I think I was reading a blog that referenced their blog, but I can't be certain.  Anyhow, I saw these two pictures:

Hickory Chair- Alexander Sofa
Hickory Chair- Albert Sofa and Madeline Chairs

and this my friends, is how my obsession with decorating with grey and yellow began...

I found a store that sold Hickory Chair furniture, Hampton House, and went to check out the fabric samples literally the day we closed on the house (not kidding).  Of course, the in-house designer told me that the velvet, that the two above couches are covered in, is one of the highest grade fabrics and therefore the most expensive.  Well, at least I know how to pick them!  I jumped the gun a bit as we still aren't quite ready to buy furniture for most of our rooms, but it's a lot of fun to shop/window shop and it's hard to hold yourself back.

Here are the fabric swatches:

Here is the room where I'm thinking of using the yellow/grey theme:

Here are some other yellow and grey decor that I'm loving right now:

Layla Grace- Dwell Studio Ikat Citrine pillow

Etsy- Idari Ikat pillow
Monaco Table Lamp

Crate & Barrel Chloe Chair (comes in yellow and grey)

For some reason, I'm really loving grey paired with a lot of colors right now- hot pink/magenta, orange, teal and purple, to name a few. 

Let me know what color combinations you're obsessing over right now.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Loving this grey and yellow combo. I did a grey and soft vintage rose color combo in my daughter's room. Very lovely.

    1. Sounds very lovely! Would love to see a pic. E-mail me.
