Inspiration Board: Yellow & Grey Amount to a Bright, White, Sunshiny Day!

About a year ago, as we were walking the streets of lower Manhattan on our way to lunch, future hubby drew my attention to a brand new residential high-rise on our left.  It was a very modern structure, and only two colors coated its walls, which were made entirely of brick.  The colors?  Grey and yellow.  The building was unlike any I had seen before it.  There was no symmetry in its design or palette, and so yellow was applied seemingly at random.

He asked me what I thought of the color-pairing, which, he told me, was the newest thing in the way of architectural color schemes.  I certainly had an opinion on that, but my immediate reaction was to wonder during which football game this topic was discussed.  Really?  You know this how?  The random bits of trivia that fall out of his mouth never cease to amaze me.  

The reaction I voiced was to the color pairing.


It was a guttural response, and it was strong.  I could not stand it.  

Fast forward to just under a year later… 

LOVING grey and yellow!  It’s so odd how our tastes evolve, right?  

For example, about five years ago, this became totally appetizing to me… 

mmm mmm good ;)

Cook them up in a little chicken broth and I’m a happy camper.  So yeah, it’s weird how our tastes evolve.

“But TKB,” you might say, “not one inspiration board does true love make!”  And you’re right… it takes two.  Here’s the other one for your reference.  

Thinking about doing up your day in details of yellow and grey?  Here’s today’s inspiration board, hope it’s inspiring!  Below it, I’ve included a bunch of wedding-worthy Etsy finds that are sure to give your wedding that most wonderful wow factor.
