{a celebration of sunny days}

{Natalia Vodianova photographed by Mario Testino}

If you're feeling the full affects of Spring fever and are ready to commit to more than
a few vibrant accessories, drench your walls {and disposition} in sunshine:

"Yellow is a happy, bright, and uplifting colour, a celebration of sunny days. It is associated with the intellectual side of the mind, and the expression of thoughts. It therefore aids the powers of discernment and discrimination, memory and clear thinking, decision making and good judgment. It also helps good organization, assimilation of new ideas, and the ability to see different points of view. It builds self-confidence and encourages an optimistic attitude."

Absolutely sunny and delicious and the perfect cure for a gray day. And the Yellow Oval Room at the White House (which is very pretty) - that's got to be a blog first!

I used to live in a bright yellow antique colonial house with white trim and a cornflower blue door - I loved it. It was always sunny!

painted our new store yellow last year prior to opening and the compliments keep coming in. It gives off a glow, the effects of which are better than yoga. I love yellow!

Absolutely sunny and joyous pictures. Everyone is celebrating Spring in their blogs while we are bunking down for another mild winter. 2 weeks until winter and still sleeping with just a sheet on! Oh, to have cold enough days to wear a stylish coat!

Drench your walls in sushine -- I love that idea. I never really thought of yellow as a "grown-up" color but it works beautifully in all of these rooms.

I am still shaking from the sheer decadence of that first picture!!!! You killed me! That is beautiful.

Christine, LOL—love that your husband has been exposed to this blog :)

Yoli—I’ll always be in love with the Mario Testino image, and sheer decadence is the perfect way to describe it.

Thanks for stopping by, everyone—hope you’re having a fantastic week so far. A little slow with posting and responding to comments—my cousin is visiting from Paris and we’re gallivanting about . . .
