2010's Hot Color

It's true. I don't make this stuff up (well some of it I do). I was surprised to see so much of it in my new catalogues this week. I love it, I think it really freshens up a room and adds a nice pop of color. BUT not all rooms can handle yellow. I don't have a single room in my house that yellow would work in. That makes me a little sad. Maybe it will work in yours. Notice how it's used as an accent in the photos below and not overdone. I like how the other colors are neutral and light. So, if you have a room that needs a color pop, give yellow a try.

Photos above are from some of my favorite places to shop- West Elm, CB2 & Chiasso.
If you use yellow in a room, send me the link or the photos so I can see your great work!

P.S. Yes, I did read an article the other day where a designer said the hot color for 2010 was "Apricot". Well, he has many years of experience more than I do and he designs houses for the rich and famous but I have a hard time believing that Apricot is going to be hot this year. So, if you are rich and famous and reading this, ignore the part about the yellow and go with Apricot.

So I wonder - is yellow only "in" when mixed with gray? I heart yellow and red together. Hope that's not passe! Love posts about color. Thanks!
