You Are My Sunshine......

Although I've never been a "gray" fan before (maybe because we have so many gray days around here?), the new combination of yellow and gray has suddenly become my favorite color scheme! Like adding sunshine to the cloudy sky, yellow warms up the cool gray tone, and it becomes a crisp neutral. We saw lots of yellow and gray together on our recent trip to the Atlanta Gift Show, and just this week, we received a new furniture grouping in the shop in this great combination (see the last two pictures). Here are some photos of different rooms featuring yellow and gray:

Accenting with black makes this combination even more striking!

Accenting with white makes it soft and inviting.

It can be contemporary.......

.......or traditional.

Love the way they tucked in the two throws to "create" a color scheme with a neutral chair!

You could use the yellow just for accessorizing an otherwise neutral gray space.

It's even a great combination to use outdoors on a patio.....

Or for a cozy picnic.

And here is our new version of the gray and yellow......a dove gray velvet-like sofa accented with mustard yellow pillows and a gray tweed coffee table/ottoman.......

......facing two gray and white houndstooth chairs accented with a yellow throw and other yellow accessories.

We hope you'll stop in soon to see this exciting new grouping. Also new in the shop this week:

*LOTS of fabulous jewelry that I brought back from the Atlanta Show

*Cute "faux" myrtle topiaries in several heights

*Great large, airy potted ferns

*Aromatique's new Red Currant candle (smells wonderful!)

We will be getting new merchandise in every day from the Show, so visit often! Hope to see you soon.
