How can a person go wrong with yellow & black I say? The last room is my favorite. Definitely on my “inspiration” list!

Black and yellow or grey and yellow are the hottest combinations this year in my opinion.

Never knew yellow and black could look so gorgeous, I especially love the pillows in photo 2

I love yellow & black. Honestly though, I could not paint a nursery wall black & feel good about it.

Yellow and black are so striking. I especially love the 2nd picture from the top and 2nd from the bottom. Great photos!

LOVE the striped ceiling! This would definitely “bee” a great look!

* YOUR TITLE certainly caught my eye, reminding me of a bee-covered (“faux”, of course!) chest that Sister Parish gave to the late Billy Baldwin… I can’t remember what he said (in his book) about the WHOLE quote, but as I RECALL she was talking about his being a rather slight man, but “his STING was deep”, hence the bee-covered chest as a special gift to him … It’s been yeeears since I read that book , & I’ve GOT to dig it out and read it again~~~ it’s a faaabulous read!

…ANNNND, the yellow is certainly an enticing “new ” color, if not “briiiight”!!! Kinda fun!!!

Many thanks!

Love the bedroom w/ the zebra and the baby room! These examples really chic-ify black and yellow

Yellow and black make such a dramatic color scheme. Your examples are stunning.
I think the second one from the bottom is my favorite. Love that yellow sofa and zebra rug paired with the French chandelier and pale grey walls.
Great inspiration.
