Inspiration: Yellow

041709-yellow01.jpgIs because we wear gray all the time and we're looking for something to mix it up? Or maybe it's a harbinger of spring? Or could it be a friend's child's obsession with Curious George and his patron? Whatever it is, we're currently having a yellow moment. Which is why these yellow floors we saw on Bloesem were so arresting and unexpected in an otherwise neutral room. More ways to incorporate yellow, after the jump...

Most likely it's the fact that we're about to paint over our living room's yellow walls. And when that happens (like when you cut all your hair off and suddenly it seems like everyone has long hair), you suddenly see it everywhere.

Here, as a headboard it becomes the focal point, and a spot of light in an otherwise dark room

When yellow lines the hallway, you can be sure that a home filled with good food, good friends and good conversation is at the end.

Grey and yellow is one of our favorite combinations whether it's the walls that are yellow and the furnishing grey or vis versa....

This much yellow is definitely a commitment. You cannot be shy and have a room that rocks this bright a colour.

Aubergine aka eggplant or deep black purple and yellow is a sophisticated and sexy combination.

To brighten up these dark times, how about bringing a touch of yellow into your home and creating your own bit of sunshine? It can be a simple as a bowl of lemons, a bright teapot or a wall on one end of your living room. Or try throwing yellow into an otherwise neutral and subdued room with a bright pillow, a throw or a bunch of sunny daffodils.
