Decorating with Yellow
March 23, 2010
I was slicing lemons and trimming the ends of daffodils yesterday, then I was struck by a mad passion for yellow. Hmm. Strange. I just painted over all the yellow in my kitchen, and today I am fixated. Fickle am I. It must be my serious case of spring fever.
Anyway, I got to thinking. Yellow is one of those colors that’s a little trickier to design with, but when used just right, yellow is incredibly stylish and oh so chic. Yellow is vibrant and cheerful; the color of sunshine and happiness! I think it is especially beautiful when paired with deep gray, soft green, turquoise, or white.
Here’s a few examples of yellow done just right.
If yellow is not your preferred shade to decorate with, you can bring this cheerful color into your home temporarily with just some simple flowers . . .
or fresh lemons.
Now that’s a view of yellow I’ll never tire of. :-)
Does yellow inspire you ? Have you used it to decorate your home ?
