In The Mood For... Yellow!


Pin It

As I was browsing through my favorite design blogs this week, I came across some beautiful interiors which seemed to have been designed especially for springtime. They were all mainly white, with touches of sunny yellow here and there. Is it just me, or is this a trend for the Spring of 2013? The idea of yellow as an accent for my living room is more and more appealing to me... especially since I've always loved this solar color! Until I'm ready with my new decor, here is a little yellow inspiration from my previous posts. The first pic is from my yellow entryway, of course.



Yellow daffodils and white tulips on my nightstand, pop-art pillow covers, a cool tea mug and the most beautiful turquoise pitcher. Life is beautiful when you've got pretty flowers in the room!



Another thrifted lamp with off-white granny shade and yellow base from my ever growing lamp collection. Perfectly assorted to the yellow flower pot :)



Yellow tulips are hiding this vintage male Russian doll from the curious eyes. I like to think that the little man is not sad anymore.



When I made this photo session with the retro mushroom lamp (yes, yes, I know - I've got too many lamps and too little time to share them!), this was my favorite background: the hand painted faux wallpaper with a retro design from the entryway.



A little yellow stool is the perfect color accent for what used to be my beloved pink backsplash in the kitchen. It went great with the neon items on the kitchen shelf.



Even when I made this crepe paper bunting, I couldn't resist adding a hint of yellow among the other colors.



In the living room, the yellow lantern is the perfect contrast for the turquoise wall. So now, after re-viewing the endless potential of yellow stuff in corners of my home, I think I should definitely work my magic towards a spring living room with yellow accents :)

    1. In my previous home, we had all the walls painted in light yellow... and it was not too much! But some of my friends said it looked like the nuthouse :)))))

  6. Lovely photos as always but are you sure is your handsome doll is Russian??? I have a very similiar one at our istanbul home...So many years ago a former boy friend gifted me a very same one after his trip to Cappadocia... I think there is a very good possibility that he is Turkish... Come on look at his moustache... He should be either Greek or Turkish..:))

    1. Well, judging from the mustache and the clothes, I always thought he was from Uzbekistan! And I only use the term "Russian doll" as a genre description, what we call here Matryoska.

  10. This bright color is such a sunbeam in your home! I think that colors can influence our mood, in this case yellow is a shot of energy! Really a natural antidepressant! You are right, the best things in life are free!

  18. I really adore how many different lamps you have! Our apartment didn't come with ceiling lights so we had to quickly acquire some lighting when we first moved in. But now, it's all so boring! I wish we had had time to buy lovely and unique lamps (like your mushroom one!).

    1. Yelle, sorry to get back so late, things have been hectic with work, even on Sunday. I love hunting for great lamps in thrift shops, but most of my lamps are... from friends! I just see a great lamp neglected in a friend's home and sooner or later, it comes to live with me :)))

  19. I am totally with you on the yellow loving. It's SO springy and exactly what I need to get me through this last rough push through winter.

    I can't wear it because it completely washes me out, but you better believe I will bathe my house in its springy glow!

    1. Thank you for the awesome comment, Jen! To tell you the truth, when I got married I completely renovated our newly bought flat and we painted all the walls in a delicious shade of light sunny yellow. It made me feel super happy!

    1. Thank you so much for visiting, Ana! I made the pink backsplash myself, maybe it is time to post a tutorial on this DIY project, so that more people can have a hot color backsplash in their home :)
