Yellow & Graphite!!

This is the "art" I had hanging in my powder room duriung the Christmas season. I finally decided it was time for it to come down.

The walls in my powder room are a lovely butter yellow. I love this shade - sunny, cozy and warm. In the past I have accessorized it with green, turquoise and pink. But this winter I needed a change. So..... I looked to a fellow Canadian for some inspiration.

This is Sarah Richardson's farmhouse bathroom. Look at that yellow tub!

I LOVE the mix of warm yellow and every shade of grey. What a modern mix - yet with a vintage-y flavour.

Can I create this feeling? I'll give it a try!

How about changing my scrapbook frames from Christmas papers to grey and yellow ones from October Afternoon.

What do you think? I love this pennant one - and the colour combo is perfect for my new colour scheme.
And the towels- switch'em to grey!! Excellent with my nickel fixtures.
New rug - cloudy grey - CHECK!!
And here is my little medicine cabinet. I found it years ago at the Christie Antiques Fair. I gave it a good cleaning, spray-painted the rusty hinges a nickel-colour, and replaced the broken glass with some yellow and white gingham.
And added an antique glass knob. Perfect.
Quick powder room transformation - COMPLETE!

  3. What a great transformation!! I love that color scheme. I always say I'm going to do a gray and yellow room but I get derailed by a bright pillow or a funky lamp. Ha! But, I've recently added some yellow and gray throw pillows to my family, I'm finally getting it! :)

  8. Love you powder room redo. I never realized yellow and grey went so well together. Looks so pretty. I also love that pendant paper, too cute. Your medicine cabinet is too cute. I also love your "remnant" log cabin pillow. So pretty, I love to sew, don't want to make a large quilt, but I think you've inspired me to make a pillow or too. So appreciate you sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best.
