Jennifer Brouwer Design Inc. Transitional Living Room, Toronto

This living room was inspired by the love of neutrals and an urge from the client to incorporate pops of colour.

Yellow and Gray was our launch palette. We soon found lovely visuals, to support our mission. We kept the furniture calm and serene then punched each piece with pops of fun sunshine yellow!!


I know if you read my descriptions Yet again one of my favorite projects!!! I can't help it, I love them all!!

Thanks Jack and Angel, it was a pleasure working with you both :)

This project is 5+ years old. Most items shown are custom (eg. millwork, upholstered furniture, drapery). Most goods are no longer available. Benjamin Moore paint.

I love the grays, and really would appreciate advice for our windowless, somewhat dark living room.

We have a dark gold oriental area rug w/some red in the design, a floor-to-ceiling yellow quartz fireplace surround, a darkish taupe leather couch, and tan leather chairs. The room is long and narrow. Can anyone advise as to a gray, or off-white tot he gray wall paint that might work with our decor?

Grey is a neutral color that looks great with most colors. A splash of orange near your grey sofa would look incredible.

I would paint the LR similar to the kitchen walls and then use apple green or similar color either in draperies, furniture (wood tables), rug or even art work. Apple green sounds so soothing.

What color to paint the living/dining room walls. - I have zero decorating finesse. My living room furniture has a cream background with grey and tan accents. I have natural hardwood floors (no stain) and dark woodwork. The painter is coming at the end of the month to do the adjoining living/dining rooms. Do you have any suggestions? My painter uses Sherwin Williams paint. I'd love to hear your thoughts. I plan to stay for a few years but then the kids will be grown and I'll be ready to sell so I'm looking for something that will increase resale value.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Niche Interiors added this to Captivating Color Combinations for the Home
Dove gray and yellow = Fabulous. This room is a great example, using a soft palette with little punches of yellow throughout the space.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Decorating With Yellow: Neutral Spaces Kissed by The Sun
Decorate using pillows that feature bold, graphic patterns as seen above. These are my favorite patterns to work with because you can find them at any price point. The gray, cream and yellow palette creates a modern look while the mirrored furniture adds a touch of glam.
Lily Gahagan added this to Readers' Choice: The Top Living Rooms of 2010
While turquoise may technically have been the color of the year in 2010, it was yellow that kept popping up. Here the color paired with neutrals for a calm and contemporary feel. Ginger jars, shown scattered around the room, also trended high.
Kerrie Kelly Design Lab added this to Bachelorette Pad: Design Ideas for the Self-Made Lady
Shots of color in an otherwise neutral scheme reflect a punchy personality and stimulates conversation.
Lily Gahagan added this to Have Lemons? Make a Decorative Statement
Similarly, this living room needed a little extra oomph. Nothing a few yellow throw pillows and a ginger jar can't cure.
Lily Gahagan added this to Decorating Details: Temple Jars
The statuesque shape works well for adding a little height and interest where needed, making them perfect for a tablescape...
Becky Harris added this to Oscars: From Home Decor to the Red Carpet
Ah, and Cate Blanchett, in your polarizing Givenchy Couture creation. Personally, I find Cate to be one of the most successful risk-takers in fashion and I adore her for it. Her Art Deco embellished lavender and yellow gown landed somewhere in between this softer room's accents and accessories...
Scheer & Co. Interior Design added this to Metal Mixology
While not exactly gold, these sunny yellow accents balance the cool silver walls, rug and toss pillows. This is an easy look to achieve: Simply bring some bright yellow flowers into your home to offset pale gray walls!
Kelly Porter added this to Choosing Paint: How To Pick the Right Gray
Medium gray. I don't know why, but gray and yellow seem to be made for each other. Many people are hesitant to use yellow but when put with gray, it just works. You can create a cheery space by using a soft mid-tone gray with vivid yellow accents. Paint Pick: North Star 6246 by Sherwin-Williams
Beth Dotolo, ASID, RID, NCIDQ added this to What Do Your Pillows Say About You?
If you're a Formal Transitionalist: Your pillows are perfectly coordinating with a more modern flair in the patterns and styles. The living room shown here has a strategic layout of pillows, requiring some thought and planning, that resulted in a gorgeous collection of pillows that suits the room beautifully.
Becky Harris added this to Favorite Color Combinations: Gray and Yellow
In the living room: Here the yellow throw pillows are just like that small vase of fresh blossoms, adding just the right touch of yellow to this soft and sophisticated room.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Your Colors: Stick Around, Sunshine
You could even just concentrate the color in small accent. Place them around the room so the color is pulled throughout: once the eye sees something so bright, it begins looking for a connection elsewhere.
Apartment 46 for the Home added this to 10 Ways to Get Your Lighting Right
7. Mix bases, match shades. This room is a great example of mismatching lamps: The crisp white drum shades connect the floor and table lamps, though both are very different. The almost Roman styling of the floor lamp and the crystal-ball base of the table lamp both work wonderfully against the dove-gray walls, and both serve different purposes. A floor lamp generally lights a larger area than a table lamp, but neither light a whole room. Together they make for a warmer lighting scheme that is bright enough but not overbearing.
The Yellow Cape Cod added this to To Chop or Not to Chop?
The type of insert your pillow has may help you decide if you want to chop or not. Here the pillows appear to have a feather or down insert with a high fill count. They look full and plump without chopping. A foam insert is definitely not a good contender for a pillow chop. Pillows with foam filling tend to be more rigid and usually look good without frequent fluffing. If you overmanipulate them, in fact, they can get lumpy.
