Yellow? Yes Please!

Last night we had the Doughty's, our wonderful friends from church, over for dinner. I made lemon sorbet balls for dessert and fogot to take a pic before they were all eaten up, so here's an example of what they looked like! If you are wondering, they are super easy to make. Cut a lemon in half, empty the fruit out, and scoop some lemon or lime sorbet into the emptied peel. Use the small side of a cheese grater to scrape a little lemon rind off the bottom (it gives the lemon a flatter bottom so it won't tip over) and sprinkle it on the top. Freeze and enjoy with gingersnap cookies. The perfect summer treat!

It got me thinking how I've always been a big fan of the color yellow. Depending on the shade, it can be soft, sunny, peppy, or sophisticated. I was even tempted to have yellow bridesmaids dresses in my wedding last May, but then went with robin's egg blue dresses and yellow flowers and accents.

This year, the happy shade is all over the runways and the home trend of pairing yellow with dove grey is white hot! I'm a big fan of yellow with cocoa brown, yellow with fuchsia, yellow with coral, and yellow with aqua (my blog is proof).

Here are a few vintage inspired rooms that exhibit walls, furniture, and miscellaneous pops of delightful yellow!

So, as you can see, you don't have to paint a room to make yellow the focal color. Pops of maize, goldenrod, canary, butter, and citron will help you achieve the desired look. Ready for some pops of yellow? Here you go. You're welcome:)
