Pop Of Yellow {Living Room Before and After}


It's clear that my subtle love affair with citron yellow has not died down. From my inspiration post here to the one and only yellow blazer in my wardrobe, I've been in desperate need of a little cheerful optimism in my life. The colors we live with really do influence our emotions. Some palettes either lighten or brighten our mood, while others tend to pacify or purify. So it's important we choose wisely. Originally, when we moved into this place I was itching to paint the walls white which would have intensified the bright yellow drapes in the room, but knowing this was a temporary place, I decided against it. Instead I opted to add zest to the room with some touches of yellow and other accessories to visually balance out the space. Being that yellow expands, cheers and increases energy, I knew that's the color drape I wanted to offset the neutralizing existing wall color. And I must say, those yellow curtains that I put up back in November {which by the way, took an agonizing three weeks to arrive from Joss & Main} definitely add the right level of energy to the room that I was hoping for. I've gotten many great compliments about them, but the best compliment I've gotten is when I had my wine and cheese party, a friend {ex-actress and an amazing artist} said "I've never seen yellow look that good!"

Before....

After...

I still would like to add a bull's skull/head {liking this one and this one is pretty cool - I wish this cow's skull was in gold} above the TV - just haven't been able to find the right one yet. I also wanted to add a sofa table, but the time left here is dwindling by the day, so I think I'm going to hold off on that.
