When Yellow Met Grey

I take colour inspiration from the strangest of places. My first memory of meeting yellow and grey was the little logo on my mum “Swan” iron from back in the 80’s for a long while I was fascinated with the logo {not enough to volunteer to do the ironing!}  and for a long while that’s were yellow and grey stayed, safely tucked away in the in 1989! Over the past few years the yellow & grey combo has won its way back into our hearts , here are just a few inspiring creations…

    such a perfect combo! I love the cool, elegance of greys (my favourite colour to wear too!) and the contast of the sharp, citrus of yellows. Lovely!

    These two colours in their full palettes work really good together. Grey colours tone down while yellow colours add energy and light.
