obsessing over yellow and grey

January 18, 2011

ok, i am seriously obsessing about bedroom design right now! i have had red and brown in our bedroom for a while now, but i am so over it. sometimes you just need a fresh start. i have a ton of work to do in the bedroom. first on the agenda is taking down a hideous wallpaper border in forest green and maroon. i mean, i just don’t understand how anyone ever loved that color combo but it certainly was everywhere wasn’t it? next on the agenda is the faux painted beige wall. i think i am just going to go with a white for now to match all the other walls. i can’t see that the owners we are renting from would object.

then there is the matter of refinishing all of my bedroom furniture. yes, that is right, all of it. when i first refinished my furniture we did a cream color with a brown stain antiquing over it. and i am kind of ready for a more fresh look. maybe white on my dresser and black on the night stands. i kind of don’t want them to match. and with the grey of my new armoire, i think it will be super fun. ok, so i have a lot of work to do and that is an understatement!!! oh, and i am dreaming of having a grey upholstered headboard. wouldn’t that be lovely. anyways, here are a few pics that are my inspiration.

yellow and grey


i really love the black mirrors behind the lamps. i think i might do that with my night stands and paint them black. it really grounds the space don’t you think?

i love the artwork don’t you? hmmm… maybe inspiration for some paintings.

ok, seriously i better stop now. because when i start obsessing over a room i go a little crazy. when i get in this mode, i wish it was all done yesterday and it is all i think about until, well, i have everything changed. but the reality is that it is going to be a while before i have all of these changes made. am i the only one who does this?

    I am a big fan of gray and yellow lately. Yellow has come late to my color party but the New yellows (learning toward mustard, not sunshine) have my vote. And I just think gray is classy!

    Go for it… it would look so fresh. I just love the yellow walls and that grey cushion! I’ve just gotten over a bout of refinishing a chest of drawers and bedside tables. I can’t believe what a difference it makes.
