Bringing Some Sunshine to an Otherwise Grey Day
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.
