Shopping for Yellow

While inspiration and ideas are the first steps to designing a space, learning where to commit to color is the most important!

Fabric First: There is no way to add a splash more effectively than through the use of fabric.  And while I can certainly help you create a complete look, you can tap into your inner designer by simply adding a yellow throw pillow which can transform a space. In these rooms I instantly added some sunshine to a blue and purple palette.

In designing my own fabric line, I dedicated a whole book to citron and fuschia. Some of my favorites include a modern floral, Greek key, zebra print and of course a sunburst style.

Wallpaper: While many people are afraid of wallpaper, others say it's making a major comeback. I never thought it went out of style and love a graphic print like the one I used in this kitchen. Next time I might try this citrine shade - what better place to make a sunny statement!

Accessorize: If you want to test out a hue in your home, try a statement lamp and colorful coffee table book for a modern touch or a simple bouquet of yellow tulips in a pitcher for something more country.
