My Color Pick For 2013

It is that time of year again!! For the last two years I chose my own personal color of the year for my own home.

I base this choice on a color that I think will add a little life to my home in usually small doses.

Last year I chose Kelly/Emerald green and I did add it to my home in a small dose and loved it.

This year the color I am going to choose is in the yellow family.

Pantone has a color called Mimosa that is very close to what I am trying to describe.

It is a cross between yellow and gold no green based yellows for me just a nice rich warm yellow on the gold side……

If you follow me on Pinterest you already know that I have been pinning away for awhile onto my Yellow board.

Yellow is one of the hardest colors for most people to live with. In my experience either you ARE a yellow person, or you ARE NOT!!

I happen to love yellow and have had it in my home every since I got married 42 years ago.

(Benjamin Moore’s Dorset Cream is the perfect yellow for walls.)

In fact the outside of my home is yellow and our main living area has yellow/maize walls.

Just a touch of sunflower in a room can warm the space up….

Yellow and white is such a fresh and crisp look for a room.

Yellow can mixed nicely with neutrals and grays……

Just a touch of yellow in the forsythia makes this neutral room come alive. You don’t have to commit to a yellow color scheme for your whole room, just a touch in natural elements will bring some sunshine into your home……..

Could you use a little sunshine in your life?

Do you see yourself adding  a touch of yellow in your home or wardrobe this year?
