Cheers to another week friends! Did you have a great weekend? I was ripping and running on Saturday and had a much needed day of relaxation Sunday. I’m ready to hit the ground running this week and tackle my long to-do list.
I’m popping in today to share some colorful design inspiration with you.
I’ve also love the color yellow and have used it in my decor over the years but I’ve found myself gravitating toward it more recently. As I’ve been working on design projects and looking to change our some pillows in my own home, this is the color I’ve been seeking.
My love for yellow runs the gamut from bright and sunny to deep, rich amber tones. I love the soft and pretty shades as much as the warmer tones.
Yellow is one of those colors that mixes well with other colors and it also feels right at home with silver or gold finishes.
DECORATING WITH YELLOW
A pop of yellow adds an instant dose of cheer and vibrancy to room and just a small statement goes a long way in making an impact.
A brighter shade of yellow can be a good choice for an accent piece of furniture. Against white walls, the color looks fresh and modern and against a dark wall the color feels dramatic and sophisticated.
Yellow has been a color used in traditional decor for decades and will be around for decades to come.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know I love a colorful sofa. Next to emerald green, a yellow sofa is on my design wish list. I love the look of the sofa below against the soft grey built-in cabinets.
And in a sunroom, yellow is the perfect color to pair with neutrals and white for a relaxing and polished feel.
And kitchens are one of my favorite places for the color yellow. The yellow cushions on this banquet seating add so much life and energy to an all-white kitchen.
If you like bold statements, why not a yellow oven or a statement piece of art to punctuate the room?
