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!
what do you think? are you noticing this color trend too? would you use pink or yellow (or both) in your home? what color trends are you noticing?
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 :
and if you are more subdued than this one will do :
you can see more from the pops of color pinboard here.
