Bohemian ambience with chartreuse yellow and dark grey
Inspired by the French liqueur, chartreuse yellow is a vibrant shade with green undertones. In fact, this bright colour is often described as being exactly halfway between green and yellow.
The bold vibrancy of this shade is perfect for with the bohemian trend. When paired with complementary colours (such as teal and rust) and harmonising neutrals, chartreuse yellow adds a funky and fun vibe to your space.
This bright colour is at its best paired with darker shades of grey as it typically has cooler undertones, meaning slates or charcoals are your go-to hues. These deeper colours help to prevent your chartreuse from becoming too overwhelming and balance your living room décor. Consider using lighter grey shades or even crisp whites on your walls to keep your bohemian living room light and airy.
For a real style statement in your grey and yellow living room, look for a yellow sofa in a comfortable fabric. This will be the focal point in your space, so add accents of dark charcoal to anchor your décor like a grey coffee table or scatter cushions in mix-and-match patterns.
Parisienne flair with lemon shades and muted greys
Parisienne interior style is classic, effortlessly chic and awash with understated opulence. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why so many want to add a little French flair into their living room spaces.
Often associated with shades of white and natural wood, Parisienne-inspired interiors can be colourful too. To achieve this elegant look in your grey and yellow living room, look for muted hues. Pastel lemon yellows marry well with cool pale greys and these should be integral to your living room colour palette.
Floral prints will add to the romantic look and feel of your space. Try adding a statement grey and yellow floral wallpaper to one wall, using a soft grey elsewhere to keep your French-inspired interior understated.
For your furniture, look for ornately carved pieces in your colour combination. A yellow armchair will add contemporary style as an accent piece, but be sure to add plenty of grey shades to prevent this colour from becoming overwhelming. For example, a luxurious grey rug in a muted shade will keep your space cohesive. Consider including some white furniture as well, such as an ornate white coffee table, to keep your grey and yellow living room airy and fresh.
