Sunshine Yellow

I’m really loving yellow right now. It’s just so cheerful and reminds me of the sunny days to come. I put this jar of flowers by my bed and just the sight of them makes me smile in the mornings.

I also found this gorgeous bag in Sainsbury’s over the weekend for just £14.00. They’re not online right now but you should be able to grab one if you hotfoot it down to your local store.  It brightens up any outfit and really stands out. It would look so pretty with a navy blue polka dot scarf tied around the strap.

Is it possible that tea tastes better or worse depending on the type of cup you’re drinking it from? I think so; there’s a notable difference between a vintage china teacup and a novelty ’30 and Flirty!’ mug.  The husband – being so unaffected by cup snobbery he would probably drink his tea out of a shoe – usually ends up with that at breakfast time, while I make a beeline for this gorgeous Cath Kidston mug.  It’s not vintage china, obviously (I wouldn’t trust myself in the mornings) but it’s bright and cheerful and the perfect size for a decent cuppa.

The yellow obsession doesn’t end there. I’m so tempted by this paint shade (Mister David) by Little Greene. It would look fantastic on a front door or a piece of furniture that you really want to pop against the rest of your colour scheme. In fact I seriously considered painting my distressed chest in this but the pink won out in the end. I do have another project in the pipeline so maybe this is something to keep in mind.

Something else that caught my eye recently is this sweater from Joy. With warmer days on the way it would be perfect to throw on for an evening stroll on the beach or breakfast in the garden and would look so cute teamed with navy jeans and ballet pumps.

Finally, I can’t stop looking at this cosy throw by Joules.  It’s a little on the pricey side but would make such a cheery addition to any interior and would look especially lovely draped over the arm of a leather Chesterfield armchair.

So there you have it.  Yellow overload.  What’s your take on yellow? Are there any other items out there that I need to know about?
