Yellow & Gray Home Office Inspiration

Home Office Inspiration – Yellow is a bright, energetic color that is often associated with optimism and creativity, making it a great choice for a home office or den where creativity and high energy are desired. Gray, on the other hand, is a very calming and modern color. Pairing the two together creates a space that feels modern and fresh and full of energy without becoming overwhelming!

The base for this room starts with a modern light-colored wood floor and a pale grey wall that provide a bright and airy backdrop for a statement-making dark stone fireplace. The multi-colored stone veneer offers visual detail and texture to the space. I love the variety of colors in the stone – it would be easy to update the room to a different color scheme simply by pulling a different color from the stone!

For furniture, I selected neutral colors with warm wood details and a touch of black. These pieces are flexible enough to allow you to easily update the look in the future simply by changing out the accessories. The warm wood finishes bring a cozy, nature-inspired feel to the space while the black details help to ground the space.

To bring in the energetic pop of color, I selected a desk lamp, curtain panels, artwork and throw pillows that have a touch of yellow in each, helping to carry the color through-out the room without overwhelming the space.

Well the staff are in agreement that this lamp is a gorgeous choice, we can’t seem to agree on which is better: green, pink, yellow or black! Fortunately, it comes in all four colors so you can pick your favorite to! (PS: If you missed last week’s post: our Associate Design Editor is a fan of the Yellow and included it in her home office design board!) […]
