Going for Gold: Decorating with Yellow

G'Day Friends! Welcome to this bright and summery post dedicated to all things yellow!

Yellow is the is the color of flowers, lemons, and sunshine! It is also one of those misunderstood colours that many decorators shy away from. However, Yellow can help to brighten up dark rooms and it breathes warmth into cold spaces.

I love the colour Yellow and maybe you will too after you have seen some of these lovely yellow pictures!

Yellow shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future. Yellow will advance from surrounding colors and instill optimism and energy as well as spark creative thoughts. 

You might think of yellow as challenging to pair with other colors, but in reality, it’s incredibly versatile. House Beautiful

because it’s the basis of a warm palette.”

Yellow wakes me up in the morning. Yellow gets me on the bike every day. Yellow has taught me the true meaning of sacrifice. Yellow makes me suffer. Yellow is the reason I am here. Lance Armstrong

There are painters who transform the sun to a
yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transfer a yellow spot into the sun. Pablo Picasso

How wonderful yellow is. It stands for the sun. Vincent Van Gogh

Yellows such as pale citron or mellow ocher are usually easier to incorporate than high-voltage tones, which can quickly become overbearing. House Beautiful

In a Palm Beach entrance hall, designed by Lee Bierly and Christopher Drake, saturated yellow (see next slide) is set off by moldings painted with Benjamin Moore White Dove semigloss enamel. House Beautiful

Yellow really is so versatile and with its sunny appeal, yellow could be a most welcome splash of warmth and colour in your home.

Yay for Yellow!

Just a quick note before I go about keeping touch. Many of you know that I am not a fan of Facebook and I don't really post anything over there and I've now heard that the company is further limiting the posts your readers can see. You can read more about this at TIME. Anyway, I just wanted to remind you about the other options available for following me so we can keep connected.
