I have a confession to make. It’s been more than four years since I first felt my heart flutter with excitement at the sight of this hue, and no matter what I do I just can’t quit you. Yellow, you are my colour drug! Whether you layer one of your gently weathered shades into an industrial scheme, provide a contrasting accent to a monochromatic room or bring a glossy pop of playful lemon to a space, you always give Mr. Bazaar the colour high he craves everyday. You pair beautifully with graphic patterns, ironically softening them despite your vivacious characteristics; work wonders when framed in a formal setting and then called upon as a reference point for layered accessories; and are versatile enough to hit the right notes whether used in country or coastal homes. You’re so darn good I can’t imagine life without you – truth be told, I wouldn’t even want to. Yellow, here’s to you, me and one bright addiction!
