Yellow is Your Color

I took this silly colors quizz and the result is the sunny YELLOW. ...and I quote : "You are quite the powerful thinker. It’s this talent that allows you to overcome a plethora of great obstacles. Luckily, this doesn’t affect your ego and you give off a pretty easy-going appearance. You enjoy the finer things in life and also have an attraction to art. If you can help it, you try not to rock the boat. But you also can’t stop yourself from searching for new ideas, methods or styles." Quite accurate, but i'm more a BLUE... [Lire la suite]

Yellow Stuff for My Kitchen

After some yellow inspiration, comes the perspiration. Cleaning and organizing the kitchen, then buying some yellow stuff as pick-me-ups for the room. Here's what I found at www.Monoprix.fr : A yellow rug to put below sink, two white and yellow mugs to hang above counter, one dishtowel with same leaf/floral pattern as mugs (to be hung too), and a small bamboo tray for lemons and onions, to put on counter top. Yay!Beautymist.

It has good bones, but is a bit "cold": it is painted a crisp white and has lots of stainless steel appliances, with touches of dark green. I've looked for inspiration online and found that small touches of yellow, orange, and a little red will help (see above pic). So will a touch of wood, for its warmth. Below is the home of Julie Carlson (Remodelista blogger), whose family created this home from what used to be a... [Lire la suite]
