Mellow Yellow

Lately, I've had an obsession with the color yellow. I even used yellow as one of the main colors in my wedding this past summer...

And since I love it so much, I use it in my house in whatever way that I can. Our dining room is currently painted yellow, but I feel like it's just missing because of this feeling I've been trying to find some inspiration. Not all of the pictures I have found are of dining rooms, because like I said..I love yellow anywhere and everywhere in the house. Here are some great pictures that I've found so far...

As you can see in some of the pictures there is a lot of emphasis on the colors yellow and grey..and I absolutely love this color combination! I love it so much that I'm thinking about painting the walls of my dining room a grey color and using yellow accents. My only problem is that I worry that the pretty modern feel of the grey will conflict with some of my other decor. While my dining room does not share a space with my living room and kitchen, my house does have a very open feel and you can see each room from the others. I would call my current decor "safe"..there are many thing that I love about it, but I definitely want to begin to create a more modern feel throughout the entire house...starting with this new look in the dining room.

So what do you guys think? Do you like the idea of grey walls with yellow accents? And how can I slowly begin spreading the modern feel and decor without making the other rooms in my house look out of place?
