Color Inspiration: Gray and Yellow

Inspired by the perfect contrast of warm buttery yellows and soothing gray used in Anne-Marie and Vytas's House Tour we've rounded up a few more applications of the long-lastingly popular color pairing. We love how the combo lends itself equally to modern and traditional design...

I am usually wary of color combinations that make such a swift rise to fame. However, unlike gray and say, peach (huge in the late eighties and early nineties), the marriage of grays and yellows seems to have quite a bit of staying potential. What are your thoughts?
