The older I get the less formality I seem to seek in my life.  A casual room like this appeals to my sense of comfort and relaxation without losing a bit of style!  The light wood walls are the perfect backdrop for the cozy linen fabrics, wicker furniture and natural flooring.  All of these design elements work in perfect harmony to create a space that’s easy to live in.

What a dream retreat!

As I walked around the Atlanta Gift Mart during the Summer Gift Show, I took notice that not only were lots of people wearing yellow, but there were alot of really great home decor products being shown in yellow.  I was thrilled since yellow,  the vibrant and intense version, is one of my current passions. 

I love how yellow can lift the mood of a space and how as a color, it works brilliantly with so many other colors in the color spectrum.

Take a look at these rooms, fully dolled out in yellow or just adorned with a hint of the colors.  Either way, these are some great looking Yellow rooms.

I love how yellow plays against a strong white wall or molding.

Even used as an accent, yellow makes a room feel cheery!

This room feels cozy and comfortable with yellow walls, a yellow ceiling and all the cabinets painted yellow too.

Yellow and chocolate combined is a fresh and current color combination.Try substituting yellow in place of a khaki or camel color.  It will definitely give a room more energy.

What can you say except lovely!

Yellow by nature is clean and crisp, especially when mixed with white and other primary colors.

 

A little touch of yellow goes a long way in making a statement.

 

Every outdoor patio needs a touch of sunshine yellow.

Bathrooms and Laundry rooms are a great place to use yellow. Rooms with little light will appear larger and more open.

One of my current obsessions is chairs upholstered in yellow fabric.  Aren’t these classic and fun at the same time!

 

One of the hottest color trends right now is canary yellow paired black and white or grey and white.

I am so glad that Yellow is part of a rainbow…it will always be in style.
