saffron, mustard, gold: feeling warm yellows



It's fall, and every fall the cravings for warm hues comes rushing back. They bring a glow to our homes, and welcome us in the most cordial of ways.

Several years back, the lemon yellows took over as the sunshine hue of choice: they were intense, powerful, and offered a freshness that had been lacking, especially when paired with high contrast black and white as they so often were (we used that palette is my eldest daughters room back when). Cool, saturated yellows are difficult to embrace for a long time, however -  high maintenance, shouting out for attention. So yellow faded from popularity, and has taken a back seat to pinks, oranges and corals the past few years.

Well, darlings, I think it's about time for a revival! I know emerald green has tickled your fancy, and all the taste makers are heralding the return of jewel-toned blues.. but I think that warm, blackened yellows are due for some love, and we will be seeing more and more of these luscious, radiant tones turning up....







What do you think? Want to bask in this glow?

Perhaps a more subtle bit of sunshine, in the form of November's birthstone, Citrine.
It's said to bring success and personal vitality.....
