spring's colors

Pottery Barn

Pier 1

I'm seeing yellow. Yellow and all its shades seem to be pretty hot for spring's new accessories and for wall color updates. Daffodil,banana, sunshine, butter, sunset, and electric. It is everywhere. Potterybarn has it, Pier 1 has it, Restoration Hardware has it. We are all ready for a dose of sunshine, and bringing some happy yellow accents into your surroundings should carry your look almost into fall this year, as it is going to be a great color for summer as well. Paint an accent wall in your entry with Benjamin Moore's No Nonsense and lay down this cute sunflower rug for a blast of warmth as you welcome your guests. Update your pillow covers with subtle sandy yellow stripes for a hint of sophisticated sunshine. Change out your heavy winter bedding for a lighter weight quilt in shades of yellow to bring your bedroom out of hibernation. Yellow is happy and fun for this season, and absolutely fantastic when paired with crisp white and graphic black.
