Because I am a chair whore, I decided to buy myself an Eames shell chair in a FABULOUS lemon yellow the other night on eBay. I picked it up after work this afternoon. It is so damn cute, and will be perfect in my home office…that I have yet to decorate.
And while I’m here, I’ve been having problems accessing my hotmail the last couple of days so my apologies if I don’t reply in a timely fashion.
I LOVE all things retro. Like the following photo. This is the restaurant in the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles designed by Derek Sanders. The Panton flowerpot pendants, the Pierre Paulin tulip chairs, the bold yellow…yep, it’s retro and it’s fabulous.
I have noticed lately that I’m drawn to the colour yellow. I think it has to do with how much I love summer and yellow is such a beautiful summery colour. So I figured I’d do a post on different uses and ranges of yellow. Since I have basically no yellow in my home, this post is inspiration to change that.
Pale yellow walls are so warm and inviting, and would brighten up any room without being too jarring.

One of my favourite shades is acid yellow, for those who are a bit more daring and enjoy bold colours.

Bright yellow walls will bring a smile to anyone’s face but would be tough to decorate (and live) with.

A yellow (and turquoise) country-style kitchen would have everyone milling around while food is prepared.

If yellow walls are too much to commit to, then how livening things up with some yellow art….throw in some red accent furniture for an extra hit of colour and you’re set.

Accents in yellow work with all sorts of colour schemes…reds, greens, pinks, blues, the list is surprisingly endless.

Sills Huniford Associates is based in New York, and strives to create modern interiors using furniture from many eras. I am adoringly drawn to the oversized artwork used throughout their designs, particularly the simple black circle on white (I am trying to figure out where I can replicate this in my home), and the framed chalkboard (unless it’s an art piece, then imagine it as a chalkboard – the versatility of it).
