Hello Yellow

Yellow. Synonymous with optimism, laughter, happiness, good times and creativity. Used sparingly it's the perfect way to bring joy into a minimalist home. Yellow can also speed up your metabolism, now isn't that worth a try?

For that ultimate feel good factor just add this soundtrack:

Bombalurina - 'Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini'
Dawn featuring Tony Orlando - 'Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree'
Donavon - 'Mellow Yellow' 
Joni Mitchell - 'Big Yellow Taxi'
Coldplay - 'Yellow'
Black and Yellow - 'Black and Yellow'
The Beatles - 'Yellow Submarine' Elton John - 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road'

  1. Lovely pops of yellow ... so bright and cheery ... Bee xx

  2. I painted our dining table and chairs yellow this year (they needed a fresh coat of colour anyway)
    I really love it. It's cheery and makes me happy everyday. I also think that yellow goes with many other colours (funny enough that it's so unusual in interiours, I think it's really versatile!). It goes well with blue and white, but it also works with green and red. I love it!

  3. I agree. I love yellow and grey as a colour combination too xo

  4. I love yellow and grey too - love the dining area in the last photo!

  5. Yellow is my absolute favorite color! I had a yellow winter coat for a number of years, and it just made me happy in the cold weather.

    I had "Yellow" by Coldplay stuck in my head the entire time I was reading your post...

  6. Yellow - a great song isn't it? Btw I can't thank you enough for including me in your list of 16 great small blogs and your kind words xo
