Colour Crush: Yellow


So if you've read a few of my recent blog posts, you'll know just how happy i am that it is finally Spring time again! It's a season filled with some of the most beautiful colours we'll see all year whether you're fortunate enough like me to live out in the countryside, or if you're just happy to have a sunny day in your garden with some bright tulips and freshly cut grass.

One of my favourite colours so far is of course the super fresh, vibrant yellow! It's such a fun, bright colour and i've been bringing it into my home slowly with a vase daffodils at my desk. It's a colour that i find works best as minimal pops of colour and it really brightens up any work space - a perfect example of this can be seen below and is an image for West Elm from style director Shane Powers:

Now flowers unfortunately don't last more than a week (despite my best efforts!) so in a bid to add a little more permanent yellow, i've discovered some stationery treats to share with you that are a really simple way to bring a little sunshine into your stationery!

Of course, if you'd like to try something simple and effective at home, you can always add a little yellow to your letters and post, such as the below from the rather cool NYC based designer James Kape:

How do you feel about yellow in your stationery cupboard? Best kept to small doses or is it more a case of the bolder the better?
