It’s fun to decorate with yellow



You don’t need much of it—just a pop here and there—to really brighten things up, and it looks especially good in rooms that have a black/white/gray color scheme. For instance: this gorgeous serving plate would be aces on a table with all-white plates.

I think this nifty coat hanger would add a nice amount of cheer to a front hallway.


The old-school design of this electric clock works nicely with the bright hue here.

A fun candle to use instead of candlesticks when you next throw a dinner party.

Yes, I’ve shown you this nifty desk lamp before, but I just love the design for adding a touch of midcentury-ish chic to even the most workaday of office desks.

Wow, would I love to swap out my motley assortment of mixing bowls for this ceramic set.

My bedroom is mostly black and white with a bit of gray, and I think this linen duvet cover would contrast with that in such a pleasing way.

You can use this cool radio and bluetooth speaker with wet hands, making it ideal for those who require music in the shower.

Just a cute striped beach towel in an almost-mustard shade.

This placemat is a bit fussier than I typically go for, but I somehow really like it.

How fun: a trippy-looking lunch box for when you’ve got to start showing up at the office again.

A cute, quilted storage bin for your whatnots.

And here’s a sweet little cheery vase.


I am seriously contemplating purchasing a couple of these pillows for my gray living room sofa.

And finally: a Warhol banana plate for serving food or hanging on your wall.

    Yellow is one of those colors I never think about because I can’t wear it, but it SUCH a cheerful color! Love the serving plate, the desk lamp (although I would use it on a nightstand) and the vase. This posting brightened my day, thank you!

    I agree completely about decorating with yellow! Can’t wear the color, but I love how it warms and cheers up my living space, which is otherwise a mix of neutrals—gray, ivory, walnut, a little blue. I bought a credenza at a used furniture store that had an ugly finish but a fun “bamboo” motif in the trim, and I painted it a mustardy hue. It makes me smile every day.

    I don’t normally care for yellow, but I’m drawn to that duvet in a big way.

    Love yellow though I can’t wear it myself and for some reason, don’t have much yellow in my home.
    Trying to figure out the symbolism of the good luck hand symbol as a burning, melting candle.

    bought the placemats in both colors…i feel like the yellow and the turquoise will be really pretty together…
