Color Challenge ~ Yellow ...Here's Mine

Angela, from Cottage Magpie, has posted another Color Challenge. This time its Yellow. Brace yourself, I have a LOT of yellow. :)
Above is a picture of my bedroom. I have the walls painted a soft yellow and all the trim, linens, and headboard are in a crisp white. Step by step instructions on how you can make you own fireplace mantel headboard are posted here. And, of course, you know I'm going to include some of my vintage fabrics. Above are quilt weight cottons and below are decorator weight fabrics. So pretty.Vintage trims and buttons are next... This cute little piece is from my grandmother. I love the little chicks and eggs so much and it brings back fond memories of grandma's kitchen.

I purchased this pretty clothes pin bag from a seller on Ebay (I wish I could remember her name).

What's a Yellow Post without a flower? Well, the daffodils are long gone, the pansies are multi-colored, so that left me only one choice...a dandelion. It doesn't look so bad close-up, though huh?

Absolutely gorgeous yellow! Love that fireplace mantle headboard!!

this is my patch said...

I don't need to brace myself, I love yellow, and I have exactly the same colour paint as you in our bedroom. Who wouldn't like this colour with its light springtime feel the whole year through. I love everything in your photos. Primrose yellow reminds me of my grandparent's cottage, they had a bathroom suite in this colour, maybe this is where my love of the colour yellow came from? x

Wow! I love all your yellow. The only bits I have are in my kitchen - yellow Luray dishes. I could really use some sunny shades inside on this dreary day. The fabrics are gorgeous as always!!

Thanks for stopping by. Wow, I never imagined a dandilion would look so good. I love that photo. It would be so powerful blown up. I can see it in a contemporary space...but any style space with color.

Oh my goodness, have yellow walls too, almost my whole house, and have been thinking of making a headboard like this for the newly decorated guest room. Yours is amazing and I am so happy I found your instructions, thank you so much :)
