Summer Color Love :: Lemon Yellow

Lately I've really been loving the color yellow. The bright, zesty and sunny hue just makes me happy and puts me in the mood for summer. It makes me crave ice cold lemonade and lemon meringue pie. It also makes me want to add some pops of yellow in my apartment to liven up my decor. Yellow is definitely a color where a little goes a long way - sometimes just a small accent, like a pillow or lamp, can be just enough to energize a space. How would you incorporate yellow into your decor? I've rounded up some fantastic examples of successful ways this color can be used, along with some of my favorite product picks for summer.


  1. I can’t think of another colour that puts a smile on my face quicker than yellow. It’s about high time that I incorporated more of it into my home.

  2. I have recently been drawn to lemon yellow also. It has a bright clean/crisp feeling when paired the right way. I love it mixed with white and blue!

  3. Yellow is my favorite color! My husband and I just bought a house and we're thinking of doing a yellow/grey color scheme in the living room so naturally, I am loving your picks!

  4. Love the bright picks! My living room ended up being yellow and navy...I'm so attracted to it and it's a great combo for a living room...not too feminine, not to masculine.

    Hope all is well!

    I tend to gravitate towards greeny-yellows or mustards but I have to admit these sunny cheerful yellows make me smile straight away! Such gorgeous spaces xx

  9. I love yellow too! I'm currently decorating a new house and I want to add lemon as one of my accent colors along with turquoise. I think I'd add the yellow as pillows or other decor accents.

  10. I am so loving yellow this year, too. Love your choices.
