Anyone who knows me knows yellow is my faaaaaaavorite color. Always has been. Always will be. Can it be too bright? Yes. Can it be tacky? Too much? Blinding? Yes. Yes. And yes.
But yellow - in the right shade, on the right piece, in just the right amount - is hands-down the happiest color. So much so that it makes me smile just about every time I see yellow things. It can be a challenge using this color appropriately in a space, but I've found a few samples for inspiration and proof that yellow really is fabulous. Now, where to begin...
Who needs coffee? These kitchens are an instant pick-me-up.
I spy Thonet chairs.
A grey and yellow bedroom. The yellow touches are so subtle and feminine. I love this room.
That yellow lamp is fantastic.
I do not love this room, but I love the color on the left wall. I would have replaced the yellow curtains with white and foregone the mural altogether. Add all-white place settings at every seat. And voila!
Kate Spade's bedroom. Yellow accents here and there.
Fellow bloggers from Young House Love have this PB rug in their neutral living room.
Feminine and lovely.
People should not be allowed to enter this room without a glass of wine in hand. On another note, I'd love to see the view from the trio of French doors.
Yellow furniture in lieu of yellow walls.
Nothing in this room "matches," but it all works so great together.

And finally. This may come as a shock... but it's true.
My duvet cover, walls, and nightstand accessories are yellow.

Stay tuned. Tomorrow will be yellow fashion. Get excited.
