My latest color crush!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Well, I've gone from loving everything blue and painting everything blue, to loving yellow, soft yellow...

Like beautiful baubles and starfish in a shell bowl with a hint of yellow mosaic tiles....

The yellow love all started when I re-hung these silk gold and cream colored panels in the family room...

Since you can see the livingroom from the family room I repainted the once gray sofa table a soft yellow.  I used a mocha glaze to give it an antique look...

The yellow table now looks prettier with the yellow curvy couch and the golden yellow toile pillows....don't you think?  Yes?

This little pedestal table used to be white, now it's soft yellow.

So, for now, I'm lovin yellow.
Hard to tell what it will be next week, or next month, or even tomorrow!

What color are you lovin now?

Okay, now get out there and create, make, sew, photograph, paint, draw, craft, redecorate, read, repurpose, or find something wonderful and share it with the rest of us.

Your soft yellow is just beautiful. Isn't it nice to be able to change on a whim?

Now you are talking my language, I love yellow, I have a yellow house and my wall are a variation of a maze yellow to french vanilla icecream. I have always had yellow in my home, love it!! Kathysue

I do love my soft green and soft pink combination but I do have some yellow in one of my bedrooms. I am really drawn to pastels and lots of whites...they just make me feel happy!~Hugs, Patti

Hi Sissy!
I love anything in your house, that's what I love! If you lived closer I would hire you to decorate our new home...whenever we buy one! You do a fantastic job. Love the changes you've made.

That is really pretty Sissie. I just painted my bathroom this color. Love it.

NanaDiana said...

That's so funny, Sissie! I JUST LOVE YOUR pieces!!! They are lovely! I have been drawn to soft yellow this year too...and I wrote about that on someone's blog the other day. It is just such a happy, sweet color, isn't it? When my first daughter was born her whole nursery was done in a soft, pale yellow-right down to the sheer frilled curtains. This past week she went out and bought new couches- guess what color? Soft, pale yellow! xo Diana

ps. Can I please have Gabby? She looks like she wants to come home with me~ xo Diana

Hi Sissy, everything looks so beautiful, isn't it amazing how much our taste changes. I have mostly white walls in my home, a few years ago I got in touch with a painter to come in and paint all the walls a soft gold, well he didn't show up and I never got the walls painted and now I'm so glad, because if I had, I would now be wanting to paint them back white!
hugs~~~ Daphne

Cindy said...

What a wonderful, soft shade of yellow. Your pretty whites and pale yellows are so easy on the eyes... and i'll say it again, i LOVE those curtains!


Rebecca said...

I LOVE IT TOO! More and more and more~

I love yellow and have it almost everywhere in my home. It is just so happy. Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave such a nice comment. I'm a new follower and am going right now to check out your kitchen!

Oh Sissie, I see you have crossed over into my world!! ha
Yellow has been my favorite all my life, and that's a very long time.:) Char

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

I think that yellow is gorgeous. No new colors here. If I had an extra room, I would do Black, cream with yellow accents. So I will have to enjoy your yellow from afar!

Tatjana said...

Very nice colours!The starfish is beautiful!

Dorthe said...

Hi sweet Sissie, what an energy you have, I so admire you- and it looks gorgeus.
Thanks for your dear comment, Sissie, have a happy week-and see you soon.
Hugs and love-

Hey Sissie! Your nightmare chair is beautiful now. Love the color you chose to go with that fabric. I love the pale yellow. It's so nice to be able to change things up on a whim. Enjoy and have a bright and beautiful day. :) Tammy

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Hi Sissie! I knew those curtains would tie in with the pillows. Now the yellow pieces round out the whole room! I am still on a pink bender, but am loving a grey lavender and that fresh aqua too. And I am liking the grass greens....hmmmm....

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love it, Sissie! It's very soft looking and I'm so glad you left those drapes up. They really are gorgeous! Like Amy, I was thinnking how well they went with your toile pillows on your sofa and I really like how it brings the colors from the sofa over to the window. I don't have a color of the moment right now, although I am itching to try something with one of the gray chalk paints.

Thanks goodness yellow never goes out of style. I would be in trouble if it did.

Riet said...

HI Sissie. Your colourchoice is beautiful. My drapes in the livingroom are that soft warm yellow and my walls are even softer warm yellow.I always use that colour because it gives warmth to the room. I am sure you will keep the colour for some time. hihi.
Hugs from Riet

Sissy, I love how you change!

The soft yellow is so sweet...I love it.

I love it all. I have tried to go to whites, and I love them but I love colors too. Especially soft, soft colors. I could never be pinned down to one thing.

Happy Sunday to you!

I love the tables and believe I have some leftover yellow paint in the basement. I must give it a try - you've inspired me (as always).

Hi Sissie!

Cyndy said...

looking quite beautiful, coastal and refreshed.
Come create my new drapes ;))
Do u ever tag a "How To" in ur posts to get ur look?
Some of us need that little extra push from a professional DIYer

Sares said...

Love the gold drapes. I think you can make yellow go with most colors, especially a paler version. I really like blues/grays/yellows together, it speaks of summer and the beach.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Sissie, i think you have started a trend, I love pale yellow too

I DO think the table is even prettier in soft yellow. I've always been a fan of soft yellow because it provides warmth. You are one ambitious lady, Sissie. I truly don't know from where you get all your energy!

Jane said...

Hi Sissie,
I am so loving the yellow. I think your curtains are beautiful and the yellow table is a perfect compliment. I love whites and grays but you've got me thinking about adding some color here and there. Speaking of, love, love the chair redo in the previous post. That is one great beachy chair!

Collected Treasures...for the home, heart and soul said...

oh crap....I just bought a deep red sofa and love seat.....have no idea what I was thinking, but I love us crazy, we love what we love!

Emreen said...

Wow..I love the shell shaped bowl.. And that starfish looks cute... Like the addition of baubles... Great idea..!!

Kim @ Cheap Chic Home said...

I adore soft yellow, it's such a neutral color to decorate with and so soothing. Your draperies are beautiful, Sissie!
