The white living room above with subtle yellow accents is the way I would do yellow in a room…elegant and demure pops of a muted shade that make the space just a little more lively.
But to give those of you love anything yellow, lemon, maize, ochre, mustard, apricot amber, saffron or gold…here’s a post for you.
Yellow was one of my grandmother’s favorite colors…she even had a yellow kitchen. She was always sunny, happy and bright…just like her favorite hue. (Grandma’s real absolute favorite color though was by far purple…will do a post on that at a later date.
As I am up at 2:45a trying to find yellow things…I’m realizing there are definitely shades of yellow I do not like…and some yellow things that may be too bright. Even so, I’ve managed to find a few very likable pieces that if used in moderation could add a dash of cheer to your living space.
Some furniture and more to indulge.
