Yellow in the House!

Ready for some
yellow?

 Talk about a hot color right now! Yellow paired with gray...it's everywhere. It's also another color you have to be VERY careful with. A good rule of thumb when it comes to wall paint is to go with creams and you'll get a soft yellow you can live with. If you pick a yellow, it's usually going to be intense and not what you envisioned. Now accessories are different. Pick what you like, but ask for some help if the least bit unsure about your wall paint choice.

Done right, yellow is gorgeous, sunny, energizing, and oh-so-fresh. Done wrong, you feel like you're inside a lemon...in more ways than one!

That said, here's some pictures of yellow done right that I found to share and inspire:

I'm sure by the time you read this I'll be either lightly toasted or seriously fried. Hopefully the first, and missing your comments. Hope you're having a great week!

  1. I agree about the soft yellow-it intensified quickly. A little yellow pigment goes a long way. Lovely pictures here-xo Diana
