I can't get enough of this fun and fantastic green‐tinged yellow – I've used similar shades of it in small doses all over my new house. It looks supermodern set against shades of gray and pure white. Keep in mind that if you use a vibrant hue in the back of a shelf or niche, you'll want to keep any items stored there neat and tidy, as everyone's eye will be immediately drawn to that area. Also, when you have a lot of cool gray in a space, think about including some warm elements, such as a wood floor or wood furniture, to help it feel warm and inviting.
Color palette is a key consideration when deciding how to incorporate a reclaimed wood wall, according to Matt Schmidt of AMEK Custom Builders. Reclaimed wood's finish can vary greatly, from smooth, weathered gray to rough hewn in a rainbow of paint colors. When in doubt, clean white walls work well with any color of wood.
Choose the right reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood can come from a variety of sources – shipping pallets, boats, barns, sheds, mills, commercial structures and even your home if you're remodeling. It's possible to score a pile of reclaimed wood for free if you know where to look and can do the legwork.
