Mellow Yellow


This month’s Met Home just arrived in the mail; it’s their annual Design 100 issue and the cover is a lovely tribute to “all things yellow,” which might have to be The Color of The Year. I love yellow. I can’t help but feel happy and energized when I see it. And so in honor of the fabulous Met Home, I’ve selected yellow (or, more precisely, Benjamin Moore’s “Sunshine Yellow”) as the Swatchbook of the Week. And because every primary color needs its accents, I selected a subdued grey and bold black—just the right colors to let the yellow shine. (-Allie)

    That rug is fantastic! I love yellow things with grey or chocolate brown. I just bought bright yellow twigs for a wooden floor vase I have 🙂 Beautifully designed picture too. Love your creativity. Are you a decorator or interior designer?

    Thanks again Jessica! Yellow and chocolate is another fave combo. I bet the yellow twigs in a wooden vase make an awesome modern accent. I am a decorator (not formally trained interior designer); thanks for noticing! 🙂

    Great wallpaper! Now you’ve got me thinking… maybe in my bathroom?
