Yellow

I love it.

When I was a little girl, my bedroom was painted yellow.
Now, my office/studio is painted yellow.

Right now yellow wildflowers are popping up all around us.
And just seeing them on the sides of the roads on our evening walks makes me so happy!



These are wild sunflowers. There are about 80 different varieties of sunflowers!


These are just some sort of daisy or something, but they're beautiful.
And they look fab put into vases or old bottles.




Yellow just always seems so cheerful and happy to me.

Do you have a favorite color to surround yourself with?

When I was a little girl {and even a big girl} I always said yellow was my favorite color, "because it is the happiest". Funny thing is that I can't wear it - looks horrible next to my pale, cool-undertoned skin...and I haven't ever really used it in decorating.

"Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. While it is considered an optimistic color, people lose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused. Yellow enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads. It also speeds metabolism."

Funny :) I still LOVE yellow. I love to look at it and it still makes me happy...maybe it's because I don't look at it all the time??

Beki,

So very pretty.

I'm stopping by via At The Picket Fence and tried to sign up for your email newsletter but was told the list had reached its maximum limit. Not sure if you knew that but wanted to pass it on to you ...

:)

I am also a big fan of yellow. My whole family room (open concept, 14 foot ceilings) is painted yellow. It makes me smile! Funny thing, my oldest daughter is in her first apartment, she has always loved pink but is decorating in... you guessed it... yellow!

I love all shades of green, and lately turquoise, too. Seems like lovely summer colors...

Green is my color. All shades of it, I don't even care. It's said to be the color of new beginnings and always makes me feel calm & hopeful.
