Yellow Rooms

I love yellow! It's bright and sunny but still clean looking. I think it's the perfect color to decorate with. I've heard, though, that yellow is not a very calming color, so it shouldn't be used in large doses in bedrooms. I have trouble sleeping sometimes, so I definitely need a serene color in the bedroom. But I think yellow anywhere else is fair game! Imagine a yellow kitchen. Bright white cabinets. Maybe some lemons in a bowl on the counter. So bright and happy!

Over the weekend, I was watching Sarah's House on HGTV and I had to share the beautiful laundry room they put together during the episode! My boyfriend laughed at me at how excited I got about it, but I thought it was gorgeous. A little fancy for a laundry room, in my opinion, but I'd love to do this decor in a kitchen!


Don't you love that back splash? Tiny glass square tiles in green, yellow and blue. I just think it's all so pretty. I love the cabinets up top too. I love the shape of them, horizontal instead of vertical. Although my boyfriend did have a good point asking why you would store the towels in the laundry room. I'm not sure. But I could definitely find something else to fill the cabinets with! What do you think? How do you feel about yellow in a room?

If you like the laundry room, you'll love what she did with the kitchen! :)

I thought it was pretty fancy for a laundry room (honestly, carrera floors and counters?) but it's definitely cheery and bright. I love it.
