I thought that with all the snow and ice that has been blanketing us lately that maybe an infusion of sunshine would be welcomed.
So for this week's BeColorful Color of the week I went with yellow.
This yellow is from Benjamin Moore and it is actually the color I used to paint my front door.
I have been a fan of yellow for a long time.
Back in the 90's I painted our family room a bright yellow.
( I was apparently into a lot of "stuff" and layers back then)
I loved it with all of that sunshine coming in but I'm not so sure that it didn't turn off a lot of potential buyers when we went to sell that house.
I have read, though, that yellow houses in general sell quicker.
I still have a passion for yellow but I tend to use it more as an accent color now.
Here is a bit of eye candy.
Is Sunny Yellow speaking to you?
Yellow and kitchens just seem so fresh and cheerful.
I never would have thought to pair yellow with this strong black and white but I think it really works.
I've been thinking a yellow sofa could be a fun change up in our green family room.
Yellow is a happy addition to any room whether you are going for a soft and casual look or for more modern drama.
Yellow drapes. Now that is unexpected.
I'm drawn to the fun pop of a yellow piece of furniture.
or a rug
or lampshade like this one from Lamps Plus from their Design Your Own lamp collection.
I am convinced I need one of these. Maybe two.
Not sure you are ready to take the leap into yellow?
Maybe these cute bird hooks from Real Simple would be enough sunny yellow for your room.
Have a sun filled weekend.
