COLOR COMBO: YELLOW & GRAY

Beige is often used as a neutral color in design, but don't forget about gray. There are cool grays and warm grays and it's all about how you use it. Whether on a wall or in accessories, it brings in a little sophistication to the home.

  2. Hi Lynn,
    I have always loved the idea of framing wallpaper or fabric to create wall art using a large, ornate frame (possibly found at a thrift store).

    Painting an old door (or 2) similar to the picture above would also be a cool piece of art especially if hung on the wall vertically side by side.

    Maybe even try your hand at some abstract art. Buy a large canvas and a few shades of yellow paint, and just get messy!

    I'd love to see what you decide to do...good luck!!!
