Bold, classic and refined— Matheny Goldmon talks Gray and Yellow

Gray and Yellow and are proving to be just the right mix for 2021. PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating were named the color combination of the year, and we can see why this mix of practical and optimistic fits so well in architecture and interior design. To learn more, we asked Huntsville’s Matheny Goldmon Architecture + Interiors to give us their design perspective on this color combination and where we can see it right here in Huntsville!

Though recently revived in fresh, contemporary forms, Yellow and gray is really a timeless combination in the design world. Many variations and shades of these two colors combine to form a juxtaposition between aspects of the built environment and our natural world. Gray steadies us with the thought of sturdy steel and concrete, while yellow lifts us up and is indicative of light and in some cases, life itself.

All around Huntsville one can find this combination – the warm glow of lights against the metal and pavement at Clinton Row Garage or in the conservatory’s highlights and shadows at the Eloise McDonald Propst Guest Center at The Huntsville Botanical Garden, and even the Botanical Garden Guest Center Bathroom.

Matheny Goldmon utilizes this color palette in the interior environment as well to provide balance and contrast as seen at Pane E Vino in Huntsville and at a model apartment home in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

A true test of the timeless pairing of the two hues is evident at Matheny Goldmon’s historic building in downtown Huntsville from our existing glazed block walls to our logo, eye-catching shades of yellow are supported by neutral grays in our branding and office color schemes.
