Bright as the sun...

I wanna have some fun.  Come and give me some of that yum yum chocolate chip...can I get a scoop?  Okay, I'll stop.  I hope you have that song stuck in your head for as long as I have since I heard it almost a week ago.

So, it is got up to 99 degrees this week.  They think this is the hottest June on record.  What up, el Nino?  Anyway, when I finally got out of loooooong my meeting today (literally, locked in a room for over 9 hours today so it is no wonder I'm punchy and singing Shoop in my head), I looked up and saw the bright, shiny sun and it made me think of the color yellow.

Generally, I'm not a huge fan of yellow in design (and definitely not a fan of what I look like when I wear it) but I do consider it to be a happy color.  I also think it can be really effective when used in moderation.

Looks awesome with a zebra rug!

Beachy and whimsical yellow.  Love how it looks with the green from the plants and nature inspired decor.
Yellow and black are a natural pairing!  Not something I would chose for my own personal house but I totally get why some people like it.

Lovely painted floor seen on Kathy Peterson.  Love it in yellow but can think of a ton of colors that this would work in.  This would especially be cool if you had a less than perfect hardwood floor that you wanted to cover up. 


  1. Cameron!! Don't you think that Kate Spade look would be perfect in my bedroom? I love it. I usually stay away from the yellows, but I agree, they are so bright and cheerful, and quite frankly, unexpected in a black/white/gray room. Thoughts??

  2. I love this idea! Let's file it in your inspiration file!
