To us, it makes perfect sense to add pops of yellow into the kitchen.  Depending on how much of a commitment you would like to make, there are many ways to do it.

2.  Storage bowls with yellow lids
3.  Ikat bowls
4.  Smeg refrigerator

5.  Moroccan pouf
6.  Dip dyed stools
7.  Gourd vases
8.  Forsythia branch
And, for the real risk takers out there, try adding the hue to your front door, a strategic window, or even a staircase.

These last few images require a big commitment, but you know what they say, “big risk, big reward.”  If nothing else, you’ll be smiling every day.
