To contrast and tone down the brightness of the yellow, I decided to add gray, white, and navy into the space. With just a few additional pops of yellow. I loved the contrast of the yellow, but I wanted to be careful. A few pops = good. A lotta pop = get some sunglasses!
So I painted the walls a nice medium gray color and bought a navy blue comforter set. I kept the sheets and most of the other furniture white to keep the room bright and light.
I thought my yellow dresser's color and clean lines looked modern and wanted to keep that vibe going throughout the room. So, for the art over the bed, I used Photoshop to create a modern 12x12 grid of photos.
There's 81 photos in each 12x12 block. 162 pictures total. It took a while for me to get it all done, but I really like how it looks!
I had a couple IKEA Ribba picture frames laying around. So I made them one of my "pops" and painted them yellow.
I bought a couple of these neat-shaped lamps at Target. One was green and one was white (all they had). But it was nothing a can of yellow spray paint couldn't fix.

It display's the temperature too!
Then, of course, there's my yellow dresser :o)
I added some cool white accessories, as well as a couple of coffee table books and my mercury glass Buddha head.
People tend to have a strong reaction about the head. They either think it's creepy and hate it, or think it's awesome and love it. Take a guess which team I subscribe too! ;o)
There you have it! My modern guest bedroom!
What do you guys think? Would you stay here?
