Not always so mellow.
The power of yellow is pretty phenomenal in a room.
Even in small touches it can take any space and really bring it
into clear, happy, sophisticated, fresh focus!
Great way to add a punch of glorious color in a modern way and it's generous in size without being too bulky.
I love this chair (above). I just got it for my own home. It's my HARLOW at OVERSTOCK and I'm a sucker for houndstooth and in this creamy, bright color--the classics have a whole new twist that can make any room feel refreshed. Partnered with some cool blues, crisp whites of chocolate browns it will make everything feel like it's falling into place. So sweet.
HARLOW in the yellow & white floral (chair above for OVERSTOCK) is truly the definition of "how can you be gloomy of a cheery piece of furniture?"
It's just a happy place to land and a comfortable one as well.
It really does make me happy just looking at it.
I love the color and I love it in all it's incarnations from the eye popping lemon zest to the buttery, creamy version and I think that each hue can help you make a great new statement in any room or style.
When I was putting together angelo:HOME that was one of the things I spoke about with my manufacturing team. They had been producing a lot of beige, tan and brown micro-fiber pieces. I think that neutrals have their place and you will see them in my future collections, but I didn't want to lead with that.
I wanted to bring the idea of hope, optimism and joy to this venture. I believe in the power of space and how it can be transforming in our lives and color is a big part of that. Even if you're a bit color shy, using color in a single piece or a few well chosen and placed accessories it can literally change your mood! Who is going to feel sad sitting on a bright, sunny, comfortable chair or sofa?
Partnering a bold color choice like a yellow, with whites, brown or even blues can set up your home for a fresh and classic look that always feels contemporary without acting like a trend.
BTW, the first piece so sell out in the anglo:HOME collection was one of the colors that most people that knew about the designing/planning of the line were very skeptical about. For lack of a better word: ORANGE.
The chair below just sold out today on OVERSTOCK (more are being ordered and if you're interested you can sign up with your e-mail to be notified of arrival here: Overstock)
The next pieces that are close to selling out? The yellow ones.
BRAVO to those among us that know using color isn't a risk, it's a sure thing.
