Sunny Side Up..

{be sure to check out Elva Fields new Spring collection. swoon.}

the weather report in Boston is looking grim for the next few days...I'm counting the days till Spring {although it doesn't truly warm up here until May} but at least we're heading in that direction! I find yellow so uplifting, I prefer to use hints of this color rather then swathe an entire room in the hue!
I've long admired the Darryl Carter room {image 1} pictured. I have a photo of the entire room someplace, if I find it, I'll post it. The yellow painting was actually the impetus for one I created in my own home. {will post soon}. That fabulous pop of yellow is the perfect backdrop for such a glamorous chandelier!

I cannot lie, I'm so loving little girl clothes right now..

Thanks for the burst of sunshine.

Yes, grim to say the least- I really hope the weather people are wrong again and that the sun comes out. I could totally use some sun this week.

Love your images, I did a post a while back for my East coast friends on yellow called I need some sunshine. I agree about just a pop, whether in a room or in clothing. It does put a smile on your face,that is for sure. Hope you get some nicer weather soon. I also did a post on Flowers, bring some inside it really helps perk things up. Kathysue

I am not going to lie, I live in Northern VA and was happy to see the storm is well north of us. I've got winter fatigue too. Beautiful images....

totally into yellow as of late! trying to tie yellow into my on going dining room remodel. also thinking about it for my 10 year old daughter's room--is hot pink, lt blue, brown and yellow just too much? my problem clearly is i love too many colors.

Hi Kelley,

You can mix all those colors, but you need to choose two dominant ones and use the other two as accents. I actually just designed a room that was pink, yellow, chocolate and blue, where the pink and chocolate were the main colors. I introduced the yellow and blue sparingly.

Here comes the sun...(la di da)I wish! Not sure I can handle another snowstorm, suffering right along with you. But yellow lifts my spirits everytime!

Fran said...

Great pics! So, bright and happy! Beats the NE weather we're having right now!

Bexy said...

Yellow has recently been my go-to accent color - but I really love seeing it as the star of the show!

Kalee said...

I had never been a big fan of yellow outside of the kitchen before, but lately? I am in love with yellow, finding ways to put it throughout the house!

And those yellow curtains? To die for!

Alicia B. Designs said...

ah Yellow is my favorite!

Nienke of Revel! said...

I think Toronto's weather is very similar to Boston - and come late February this weather thing is getting old real fast!

Thanks for the pop of sunshine and energy!
