And it was all...

As many of you would be well aware, when it comes to colour, it's usually all about pink for me. Lately though, there has been a lot of yellow in my life and so this week, yes, it's all about yellow!

Yellow can make a chair cheerful   -

Yellow can bring a bathroom to life -

Yellow can form part of a subtle celebration -

All in all when you take a good look at it, yellow really knows how to make a statement. Maybe you could introduce a little of it into your surrounds too?!

Hugs and a happy Monday to you,

  1. Hello Stephie:
    In our gardening days we were very wary of using yellow as it is such a demanding colour and always arrests the eye. However, there is nothing quite like it around the house for adding zip and zing to a scheme.

  2. Hello Jane and Lance!

    I don't have much yellow in my garden either except for some Freesia Roses and Lillipilli and daffodils in spring. Come to think of it I don't really have much yellow at my place at all - indoors or out! I do love a bunch of yellow blooms though. No matter what sort of flower, I usually end up bringing a bunch home!

    Hugs, Stephie x

  3. Hi Stephie,

    I enjoyed looking at the yellow images you chose. We have yellow floors and yellow panelling in our hallway and even some yellow steps on the stairs. It makes it look bright and sunny!

    Happy new week,

  4. Sunshine yellow. Such a happy color! xx

  5. So much loveliness ♥
    And I think I need a yellow tolix in my life!

    Hugs and a happy new week to you

  6. Great yellow-inspiration, what a collection!

  7. You should shop around for your counter height chairs to get the look and feel that you want for your kitchen or dining area. While you are shopping, if you happen to be looking for a new countertop as well, keep an eye on kitchen countertops prices. They’ve gotten great reviews and customer feedback.
