grey + yellow

I have a friend who is looking to re-decorate a few things in her apartment.  I was getting an overall idea of what she wanted and I asked her about color.  She wanted to inject some color into the space, keeping it fresh and chic.  I threw out a few color combinations and then I realized the perfect palette!  I was wearing a grey tank with a neon yellow cardigan (fate, I'm sure!).  I have been in awe of this color combo for a while now and once I saw it on Z Gallerie's home page my love affair was thrown in high gear!  I have been searching for a way to use it (hence my outfit) and this was the perfect project!
I've pulled together a few initial inspirations and I couldn't be any more excited about this!  I think it has chic written all over it!
This was the initial inspiration. 
 I like how this room reads soft and cozy, while still being classy.  The light neutrals balance out the bright yellow. 
 This is a great roman shade.  The first thing that caught my eye though, was the tile.  Wow!
The art on the wall would be a great DIY.  
 I LOVE this!  
I picked this picture because the zig zag wall is great.  I can see us using that as a feature wall in the living room. 
Side note: this is the most amazing nursery I have ever seen!  I came across a ton of nurseries while looking around for grey and yellow.  What a great scheme!  
  The cork boards caught my eye.  She needs an area for an office and the cork against the grey wall is great and the yellow ribbon on the boards to hold papers up is perfect!

Next up is to start pulling everything together and focusing on what key pieces we want to begin with.  I can't wait to go shopping for this!  My mood board will follow!

What do you guys think about this color combo?  Have you used it before?
