Yellow and Grey

As of late I have been obsessing over grey and yellow together. I have noticed the trend not only on design blogs like design*sponge and Apartment Therapy but in my friend's decor choices as well. Today I've been exploring all the grey and yellow combinations out there and present to you my findings.

The original inspiration for this post came from the following three photos:
