Grey + Yellow Bathroom Inspiration

With one (formerly) stalled bathroom decorated, I have decided to tackle the main bath.  Not much is needed at this point.  Just some more COLOUR (maybe in the form of artwork?) because with all the grey, it looks so disjointed from the rest of the townhouse.

Needs more colour . . .
I searched for inspirational photos this weekend and rustled up some fantastic, but perhaps too austere, results - like the lovely bathroom below.  Love the charcoal grey wall and crisp painting, but it just won't fit with the rest of the townhouse:

Then I saw this bathroom.  I really don't get the dress in the bathroom (or the radio - isn't that a bathtub no-no?), but the colour palette and mix of patinas gives me goosebumps.

I am also really intrigued by the idea of almost neon yellow artwork with a neutral palette like mine.  The bedding in the photo below really reminds me of the tones in our bathroom flooring.

The bedding in the inspiration photo above looks like the floor, right?

I think I might actually implement the grey & yellow scheme I have been mooning over


  1. I love that shower curtain! I also love the idea of the colorful mirror frame! You're definitely onto something... <3

  2. Thanks Gina! Haven't "seen" you around in awhile.

  3. haha, that really is a bath tub no-no.. i love the shower curtain and the bathroom is already beautiful as it is. if you do decide to add some pop of color, it would even be prettier!:-)

  4. Love, love, love that gorgeous shower curtain! I think you are spot on with the grey and yellow scheme! Can't wait to see how it turns out!

  5. I knew it was just a matter of time before the gray and yellow thing started keeping you up nights. :) I think it will be beautiful in your bathroom, and I can't wait to see the results.

  6. I love the yellow and grey theme! And definitely think bringing colour in with mirrors and pictures is the best idea!

    Good luck with it! I think you are on the right track! :)

  7. I love love love grey and white and the yellow adds such an interesting contrast and pop of color. So cool!

  8. Yes yes yes to yellow! It will be great in your gorgeous bathroom!

  9. I guess yellow it is! I've been working on a painting in the evening that I think will really work. I'm hoping it dries soon so I can blog about it!

  10. Yes, I think yellow will look really nice. Using the bright lemon-y yellow together with the more subdued ochre seems to warm up the grey very well, especially in the bedroom pic. This is so exciting!

  11. Yellow and gray are one of my favorite color combinations. In fact before I even scrolled down I already decided that you needed yellow. I hope you find just the right thing!
