yellow, the new neatural

Color Trend Yellow | La La Lovely

this post was really unplanned.  i was going to share a few items that i’m really loving these days (some new, some old)….but last night i participated in pin party where the subject was pops of color.  i quickly started seeing a color trend in my own pins, as well others and that color was . . . yellow.  i think it is the new neutreual.  i say that because, although, yellow is a bright color, it is being used in very white, simple modern / vintage modern settings.  now maybe, i am late to the party?  i know pops of yellow have been around for awhile (my front door has been yellow for a few years now, after all) but i think now, it is worked in anywhere and everywhere making it the new neutral, if you will.

i also saw a lot of pink (which you all know i love) and pink paired with yellow, to be specific.  i mean, really, i should say that the new color neautrals are a recipe consisting of one white and airy space, add a dash of yellow or pink or equal parts of the two combined, used sparingly and with a pinch of whimsy. voîla + enjoy!

ps- i painted a pink square on my fireplace and… it gets a lot of compliments.  i think this idea for your fireplace is really rad if you dare :
