i can’t help it, i’m totally obsessed with yellow at the moment. i just love the combination of yellow and grey that i’m seeing pop up in so many places. grey is so dreary, it’s basically the coloursonification (not a word, i know) of winter. and, well, i hate winter. but yellow! yellow is sunshine and light and warmth and all things that are good in the world.
i first noticed yellow + grey together a few months ago, when i saw kikki k had a whole range of the two colours together.
now that i think about it, i can probably trace my yellow love back to about september last year, when i was looking at furniture to purchase when i moved. i found this hemnes linen cupboard from ikea, and was instantly smitten.
i still haven’t been quite able to justify the $429 price tag, so for now, my apartment is without this cupboard. but one day, one day, i will own this. ok, so there’s no grey, but there’s plenty of yellow.
what do i love more than yellow? elephants! from etsy seller ellabellamay.
and finally, this. i’ll just take this whole room please.
i love that wallpaper, and the chair, and the rug, and the high ceiling and the big windows, and the… just all of it.
