Blog – Hello, Yellow

It’s finally springtime here in Toronto, it was quite a wait but it seems to be in full swing now.  This time of year I always find myself wanting to use bright colours.  The good thing is there has been a shift in home decor and everyone is using lots of colour.  You can pretty much walk into any store and find great pieces in bright, chromatic colours.  One of my favourites is yellow! It’s a colour that gets such a bad rap. People often refer to it while making ‘the face’; you know the face I’m referring to!  They see it as too bright, too loud, too much!  When done well, yellow can be the perfect, bright, sunny, welcoming colour.  The trick is pairing it with lots of neutrals so it can be the shining star. It’s perfection with white, black or grey.  Here are some great examples of yellow being used in a way that works perfectly!
