Gray. The neutral everyone loves to talk about, myself included! Here in rainy Portland, Oregon we get plenty of gray. Our skies are gray 222 days a year (according to the Western Regional Climate Center). So maybe that's why I'm so happy to embrace the gray-yellow combination that's been the talk of the town lately, I can always use a little sunshine!

I've matched up some great inspiration photos with their tile interpretations of this lovely color combo in glass and ceramics. For starters, here's a lovely color palette.

I noticed these Intaglio textured tiles below in the factory getting ready to be shipped out, they have a much softer feeling to them and a warmer gray like the wall color behind the bright medallions that works nicely with the tatami like textures.

Stripes! I love this bedding. The quilted stripes in the yellow cover are a nice quiet echo of the bold gray and white stripes. So clean and crisp!

Here's a field of Pratt & Larson random length stripes that might be just the thing for the bathroom connecting to this bedroom!

Or, if you like a bolder look here's some big wide stripes in a glass mosaic tile.

If it's a more floral decorative pattern that catches your eye, take a look at our Vine Flower pattern. Shown here in two Duochrome colorways, I think the tiny yellow liner ties the whole look together in either colorway.

And finally here's a great assortment of yellow and gray prints framed with a touch of silver from Martha Stewart's website along with an installation of glass mosaics in assorted size squares that has a similar feeling.
