Decorating with Colors: Hello Yellow!

Yellow has always been a difficult color for me. Yes, difficult. It's not that I don't like yellow - I love it! It's bright and fresh, and delicious, but I never seem to know what to do with it. I am still learning to wear it and still learning to decorate with it. Here is what I've learned when it comes to home decoration.
This is very brave indeed: mixing so many different tones of yellow, but determined interior designer can pull it off successfully.
 I love this Corrigan Chair in Dark Yellow linen from Anthropologie!
I love this! Introducing the color in a carpet pattern, that is not too overwhelming, but you still have the sunny effect from the pop of yellow. It's a beautiful pattern, too.
This is such a delicious nuance of pale yellow. In a main entrance door, it just says: "Sunny people inside!"
Wall art in yellow is about the easiest way to use the color for decoration (well, after flowers, that is). This specifically was a Do-It-Yourself project here.
Bright yellow art piece or an accent chair.

I have a soft spot for accent chairs and I absolutely love this one!
Beautiful yellow headboard!
Basically, you can paint any old furniture piece in yellow.

  1. Would you mind letting me know where you found the yellow/white paisley print accent chair you posted? I'm in love and want to buy!

    1. I've been searching for this one myself, but I've had no luck yet. Sorry I can't help.
