1. Functional and Decorative Wall Shelves
When you try to create a wall decor with the yellow and gray color theme, the things that you can include in it is not limited only in decorations. If you want to, you can also add functional value.
As an example, you can take a look at the traditional nursery above. The color theme used in the entire room contains the combination between gray and yellow. FYI, these tones are popular when it comes to nursery interior design topic because it is gender-neutral.
If you want to focus more on the wall decor, you can see that it mainly contains the combination between a solid gray wall and yellow and white wallpaper. Other than those, you can also see that there are two dark grey floating shelves included in the design too.
If you want to see it from the decorative point of view, shelves like these are excellent items because you can place some decorations on them, just like what you see in the picture. It gets even better because they have drawers that you can use to store items too.
2. Yellow Art on Grey Wall
Wall art: Harmonia IV by Sia Aryai
Another easy way to create the wall decor with a yellow and gray theme is by placing a yellow artwork on a gray wall. You can also do something on the contrary. However, if you want a more stunning result, placing something yellow on grey will be better because the sunny color will pop.
As an example, you can take a look at the eclectic open kitchen and dining room above. It has a grey wall that looks like concrete or something textured. Unfortunately, we cannot find any information about the material or paint.
As you can see, the wall design looks so simple with only a grey tone in it. As a decoration, the designer chose a stunning yellow wall art placed above a natural wood console table.
The bright color of this wall art creates a contrasting look in the wall design. Since the grey tone is more dominating here, the yellow hue is not overpowering at all.
About the color scheme of the room generally, the addition of the yellow art is another excellence. The reason is that it looks coordinating with the stools and yellow vase in the cooking area.
3. Yellow Statement Decoration
Wall Decoration: Large Yellow Juju Hat by Accent Touch
If you have a grey wall in your home interior design, you can count on not only a yellow wall art to create a stunning look. You can also use something else like a statement decoration in a yellow tone too.
The picture above shows a side of an eclectic bedroom where there is a fireplace in between two white cupboards. Above it, there is a yellow juju hat.
FYI, a juju hat is a headpiece worn by the royal dancers of Bamileke people during a tribal ceremony. It is not just a regular accessory because it symbolizes prosperity.
Right now, juju hat often becomes a part of home interior design too. The function is clearly as a decoration.
Commonly, people hang it on the wall, as shown in the pic. The unique appearance, as well as color variety, makes it a suitable piece for creating a statement in any wall decor.
4. Accentuating Wallpaper
This one is another idea that is quite easy for you to do at home. It is to create a fantastic wall decor in yellow and gray color only by using accentuating wallpaper.
The meaning is that you will use the wallpaper only to cover a wall side in the room. Since you want to create an accentuating effect to arrest attention here, please be careful in choosing the wall covering.
If you need an example, the triangle wallpaper you see in the picture above is an interesting one. In the pic, the wall covering is used in a gender-neutral nursery room. With a visual like this, you can also use it in another place, such as a kid’s or teen’s bedroom.
Another interesting thing that you need to know about the triangle wallpaper is that it is a peel-and-stick one. In other words, it is the option that you can easily attach to the wall and remove whenever you want to. A product like this might be suitable to pick for a DIY wall decor project.
5. Quotes or Motivational Sayings
If the gray and yellow wall decor that you want to create is meant for a room in which some good motivations are needed every day, such as in teen’s bedroom, a study room, or a home office, then you must include some quotes or motivational sayings in the design.
An accessory like this is available in so many forms right now. One of the examples is decal stickers. This item is very easy to use because you just need to peel and stick it wherever you want.
If you do not want to attach it directly on the wall because you worry that it will leave some adhesive stain, you can stick it on another surface first, such as wood. When done, you can hang it on the wall or place it on a wall shelf together with other decorations, as done in the picture above.
6. Two-Toned Wall
Sometimes, you do not need to use any decorations at all for creating the gray and yellow decor on the wall. In this case, you can count on two different colors to make the walls in your home interior attractive.
There are so many ways you can do to create something like this. For example, you can use two different materials, each with gray and yellow tones. Another way to do it is by using two wall paints to create a two-toned impression.
Take a look at the picture of a traditional bathroom above as an example. Here, the main focus of the wall decor is the application of two tones for creating an attractive look on the wall.
In the design, there are two different items used for creating a combination between gray and yellow. The first is carrara marble tile and the second is a custom yellow paint.
One thing that is interesting about the design is that the marble tile material on the wall creates texture. Something like this can avoid an unattractive look.
7. Yellow Wall Lighting on Gray Wall

Wall lighting can also be another option for creating wall decor. Just like the shelves we have talked about at the beginning of this post, lamps are also functional decorations in this case. The reason is that it does not only make the room prettier but also brighter because of the light.
The example that we want to give to you at this point is the use of yellow wall lighting on a gray wall. For a particular design like this, the visual effect that you will get is pop on the commonly neutral-looking gray color.
However, if you want to, you can do an experiment b using grey wall lighting on a yellow wall instead because something like this can be interesting too. However, the look you will get can be a bit different. In this case, the grey color of the lamps can tame the brightness of yellow.
In the example above, we can see a pair of wall sconces with custom yellow shade. Together with some other yellow items in the room, they create a popping sensation that makes the interior more attractive and away from a gloomy look.
8. Yellow and Gray Panel Wall Art
Panel wall art: Paris Grey and Yellow Canvas Wall Art by Xinqi Art
You can also create an interesting wall decor by using panel wall art, as shown in the pic above. Usually, something like this looks more suitable to include in a contemporary or modern interior. However, depending on the design, you can also use it in any other room style if you want to.
The panel wall art usually consists of more than just one piece. In other words, people typically sell it in a set. As you can see in the picture example above, the panel wart consists of three coordinating pieces.
9. Handmade Decoration
Dreamcatcher: Yellow and Grey Macrame Dreamcatcher from Made by Mums
The last but not least idea to create a wall décor with gray and yellow colors is by adding some handmade decorations in the design. Here, you can choose to buy the items or create them on your own.
The best thing about handmade decoration is that every piece is unique, which means it usually has a difference from the others. Besides, there is always love in every handmade product.
