Colourful Friday: Yellow

Since I was able to hold a pencil, my favourite colour has been yellow. Not that I walk around town dressed in yellow (especially not now we have moved from down town Amsterdam to a tiny conservative village) or drive a yellow car, or anything like that. I like yellow when it's used in a subtile way like the yellow Cole and Son "Cow Parsley" wallpaper. It combines so well with the white print, I will definately buy this for my study!
It's a shame the colour yellow is so disliked by the general public. I once held a 5 minute long speech to one of our design custumors about why I thought we should use yellow in their bedroom, and he looked at me as if I was going mental!

In the picture today: some of my favourite yellow objects.

One of the benefits of moving to a new place, is that you can go in a new direction interiorwise. Because we just moved from a small apartment to a huge house, our furniture is more or less drowning in the large rooms and I need to do some serious decorating . If only I had a budget without limits...
In my head I decorate the house over and over again, think of luxurious bedrooms, big woven rugs, fabulous furniture and lots of art and colour.
