Falling in Love With Yellow Again


When I was ten years old, I wanted a yellow bedroom.  I selected a yellow
and white stripe wallpaper that was scattered with little pink flowers and
soft green stems.  I loved that paper.  I had the cutest little upholstered
boudoir chair, as my Mom called it.  It rocked and was covered in a 
yellow and white fabric.  Precious, as I recall.  My canopy bed had a
white eyelet comforter and my matching curtains had the same eyelet with
little yellow ribbons threaded through the edges.  

I loved that room.



But somewhere along the way, I fell out of love with yellow.  I am not sure why, but
I think it is because the color blue became a new favorite.  Blue and white.  Everything
had to be blue and white.  Yellow just seemed to disappear from the palatte.



It was a shame really, because blue and white can be cold and icy.  Add a touch
of yellow to the scheme and suddenly blue becomes friendlier.




Of course, you know my fondness for pink, and pink and yellow
is about as sweet and innocent a combination that one can find.
It's dainty and charming.

This a a Laura Ashley vase I picked up a few years ago at a
consignment shop.  I was totally smitten with Laura Ashley back
in the 80's.  




This little vintage doll's comforter hangs from the top drawer of that
child's cupboard on the top of my desk in my studio.  I found the
comforter in one of my favorite little antique shops back in Idaho.  
I knew I just had to have it when I saw it, although I had no idea 
how I was going to use it.  I am that way.  I often pick up things just
because I have fallen in love with them.  No rhyme or reason, just
love.  Somehow that love always ends up incorporating itself into a
design that sings to me



Sunshine on a Stem ~ yes indeed!



Happy fabrics of a quilt that hangs over my desk.  Always makes me
smile!



A pretty vase of flowers on these vintage playing cards.  My parents 
and grandparents were big time card players.   Both my Mom and 
grandmother had the prettiest decks of cards for their bridge and 
canasta groups. 

Here I am ~ I have come full circle and have fallen in love with
yellow once again.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  1. I have nothing yellow, but like it. Seems so fresh and cooling. I have a lot of quilts and vintage linens. Need to get rid of them at my age.

  4. I absolutely love butter yellow. My sister Cheryl is the one who got me hooked on butter yellow. That was a long time ago. She's been gone over 10 years now. I also love green. Especially a soft sage green. I painted my current kitchen in those 2 colors. I just love it. The lady who lived here before me had it painted peach & dark salmon. I'm much happier now that's it's painted in my favorite colors. I love that sunflower tin Susan, & that adorable little quilt.

  5. Yellow is not a color I use a lot but it is so pretty the way you are sharing it. I did my daughter's room in blue, white and yellow once and it was so sweet and fresh looking. I think it's fun to find little things we love and move them into our home to brighten it up!
    hugs,
    Linda
