yellow trending for 2013...

Have you all noticed the infusion of yellow decor items lately?
This happy, sunny blast is trending as a go-to color for 2013.
I just received the new West Elm Spring catalog, it's filled with the promise
of spring around the corner, and vibrant yellow fabrics and accessories.
My friend Luci at Bungalow at Home posted about the new Stockholm collection
at Ikea a few days ago, I LOVE the bright yellow cabinet,
 she is right it's going to be everywhere!
Houzz is forecasting yellow to be big as a pop with neutrals.

Me....I think it's the perfect candidate for an inexpensive, low commitment,
DIY

a simple solid pillow...

I don't know if I could make the polka dot commitment, but boy did that room make me smile! Yellow does give a good sunshine fix!!

Jennifer Bridgman said...

I love little pops of yellow. It looks especially cool with the black and white, which I would have thought would look more bumblebee but doesn't at all in the images you shared!

Crissy @ House of Marlowe said...

I love a touch of yellow in decor and in my wardrobe.... that first room is fabulous!

Dana Frieling said...

Loving that first image! Do you think the other colors are jealous that yellow is known as the "happy" color? Okay, that was stupid, but hopefully it made you smile. ;)

SHERRY HART said...

And they said green was the color of the year! I am loving the yellow!

My Crafty Home Life said...

Do you remember that Chevy Chase/Goldie Hawn movie where he would answer the phone "Yellow"? I'm feeling it.

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

those yellow polka dots spread joy! and i always love a yellow chair!

Matters of Style said...

I finally got all the yellow out of my house- I don't think I am ready for it again yet! I love all the pics you posted- maybe the key is balancing it with cool hues like grays.

I love this cheerful color! Definitely gets me thinking of spring. (Even though we woke up to more snow this morning.) But, I'm looking on the bright side. :)

Blissous said...

Love the bright pops of color. I'd probably do pillows -- so I can switch 'em out at will.

Fletcher @ High Cotton Style said...

I'm just not a yellow person. Yellow flowers-I won't turn down. Subtle yellow I could live with. Maybe this year is my yellow year!

Amie Willoughby said...

Yes!! I've been seeing it EVERYWHERE & I love it the more I see it!

Love that first image!
I can see a touch of yellow, not overdone!
What happened to Emerald Green?
My rule...Live with what you like and what becomes you! If a color "flatters" you, live with it surrounding you! Then you will Smile!

Lori said...

I would have said no to yellow until I saw your photo round-up. I love the doors and slipcovers. So cheery.

Calypso In The Country said...

I like small doses of it too. Great pics!

Love the yellows in small doses. Looks more modern when not paired with blue but with neutrals. Going to check out the new Ikea pieces, very exciting when Ikea comes out with new designs!

Nancy said...

Yellow is one of my favorite colors! So happy to see these images, they are so cheerful and perfect for small doses with a big impact! Love it.

I love a small dose. The spray painted pops are fun!

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

I've always kind of liked a pop of yellow but I don't really have anything right now that is yellow - maybe I should make some pillows or something...

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

I love it in other people's photos, but don't really have anything yellow here. Those sunny yellow tulips are looking awfully appealing!

Jody said...

I love all your reference photos and the color yellow is such a bold, happy pop of color in all those rooms.

maureen said...

yes! such a bold + happy hue and just bits of it in a space gives a room so much pop!

Tarin @ Office chairs said...

Wow, yellow doors!!!
I really love it, looks fun and bright to me always.

Kim @ La Belle Époque said...

I totally agree with the yellow trend and I'm lovin' it.

Gypsy Heart said...

Beautiful photos! I've been in a "yellow frame of mind" the past two spring/summer seasons. Just found the cutest little mirror with a yellow frame at HL at 50% off so of course, it landed in my basket.
