Color Crush: Yellow

Hi, friends! With summer here in full swing, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite uses of the color yellow. It is such a warm, cheery color and it reminds me of sunshine, lemonade, and days at the beach. Yellow can be a tricky color to work with, but these folks nailed it!

2. In this monochromatic kitchen, yellow chair cushions really pop! I especially like how the color adds visual weight to the ghost chairs.

1. The saturation and vibrance of this door are to DIE for. And I adore the use of hot pink as the complimentary color here. Go bold or go home!

4. This wallpaper is everything that wallpaper should be. It manages to pull off playful and fun while remaining sophisticated and elegant. 

3. I am in love with the idea of modern yellow on a vintage fireplace--what a statement! The yellow echoed in the floral rug brings unity and cohesion to the adjoining room.

6. Hairpin legs painted yellow are the perfect amount of color on this hall table and draw out the yellow in the painting above.

5. Here is another example of yellow chairs--in addition to looking divinely comfortable, they pair beautifully with the warm wood tones.

Pillow Talk: Simply Summer

Whether on a porch swing, a back patio, or in your blissful air-conditioning, summer is perfect for grabbing a novel, a tall glass of iced tea, and kicking back for awhile. These throw pillows are some of my favorites for the season! You don't have to give up coziness or texture just because it's summer either! Just be sure to balance heavier knits with bright colors and lighter fabrics.

Pillows are easy to rotate with the seasons. Choose a few neutral ones as your base and then add bolder prints or seasonal styles to liven a space.

As a general rule, pair: 
{1 organic print - floral, leaves/vines, etc} {1 geometric print} {1+ solid or very small scale print}

There are other combinations that will work lovely, but this is a great place to start.
