touchs of yellow

i have always loved yellow.
from sunflowers,
to sunsets,
and even campfires.

yet i didn't have much more than
just a stitch of yellow
in our home.

so for the last 6 months or so,
i have been adding yellow to
our humble abode. 

here are some of my favorite yellow touches.


i took off our kitchen cabinet doors and placed vintage wallpaper
on the back.


in my studio,
i painted this buffet that belonged to my great grandparents.



a chair that my daughter found at a garage sale
a couple of years ago for $2.00.
she just recently decided that she doesn't like yellow anymore.
it now sets by our east window.
love how the morning light makes it glow.


here is the first punch of yellow i added.
just covered an old lamp shade with burlap.
added felt leaves,
and an yellow flower.


thanks for stopping!

be sure to go and see how others have used yellow
in their world.

You found great ways to add yellow. I do like the way the sun hits the chair with the morning light.
