Hello Yellow

I've just spent an amazing week in Toronto shopping for Moving Designz Spring merchandise. We bought lots of great accessories and furniture which will start arriving within the next few weeks and throughout the spring. We were also lucky enough to get a few days of personal downtime in downtown Toronto. What a fantastic city!

As it happened Toronto was in the midst of a record breaking bone chilling cold spell the entire week. It was at least minus 20 or lower most days. This has me craving beautiful warm yellow sunshine and luckily yesterday, here on PEI, we had a most amazing day filled with lots of sunshine and lovely warm (relatively speaking) above zero temperatures.

For todays post I thought we would look at some beautiful yellow rooms and accessories. Perfect for injecting a little spring into your home. Yellow pairs beautifully with white, black, gray, green, orange and aqua blue. Let's look at some very pretty yellow rooms...

This picture inspires me... I love using lemons as accessories. Talk about a shot of pure colour. Right now on my diningroom table I have a white bowl filled with faux lemons that looks very pretty and fresh. At the Toronto show we bought dozens of faux lemons and beautiful whiteware dishes for the store...for your home.

Yellow, white and fresh spring green create a very pretty room.


I love this golden yellow gourd lamp it really adds punch and sophistication.

From Sarah's House Season One this is one gorgeous room...accented with pretty yellow and gold.

A couple of great examples of using yellow paired with gray in more modern rooms. Fun!

Soft and serene...


A few great examples of using yellow wallpaper on accent walls.


I found these yellow wallpapers at Home Depot's online site.




Though not a yellow room the artwork in tones of yellow and green takes center stage. Below a few more examples of yellow artwork.

Yellow in the kitchen.

For all you soon to be brides looking for inspiration here are some classy ideas.




I have lots of lovely bedroom images some traditional, some modern and some pure relaxing cottage comfy...

From Martha Stewart a bathroom accented with sunny yellow. How pretty!

Stunning summery outdoor spaces. Proves yellow and white is always right.
