Fresh Kids Color Combo: Yellow & Grey

The yellow and grey color combo broke out of the gates a few years ago and is still going surprisingly strong, especially in children's rooms. Pairing neutral grey with a sunny yellow seems to be a happy compromise for parents who want some brightness in their child's room without going overboard. The combo also works equally well in rooms for boys or girls and is a popular choice when parents decorate a nursery before they learn the sex of their child.

Above are ten grey/yellow rooms to peruse. Click through the link to see more of each room. As you can see, most parents chose grey for the wall color and added yellow accents although a few made yellow an equal or dominant player in the room.

What do you think? Is this combo still "fresh" to you or overdone?
