Deco Alert: 1, 2, 3, Soleil

Yellow is my favorite colour and I am not scared to use it in my home. My open plan living room is a combination of White background, Grey (I`ve managed to finally buy four Emeco Broom chairs in Dark Grey) and spots of Yellow (my son Stokke high chair, cushions and kitchen accessories).

I would love to add more as Yellow is the colour of sun and happiness and when I spotted these images I immediately put them in my Pinterest board and definitely will go back to them when I will be able to afford a new, bigger house for my growing family!

I like to combine Yellow with Grey – rather than Black – but if you are keen on colours, Yellow looks great with Fuchsia and bright Green as well as Brown. Material wise I love Yellow with raw wood and exposed bricks. Have a look below and be inspired.

Deco Alert: The Art of Display

Collections are not for closets. If you have bought something you love, you want to show it off. So don`t be afraid to take out your personal collection and surround yourself with it. 

Displaying is an art. So think about it carefully before hanging out your precious things.  You can place your items, take a picture, and try different layouts, till you are happy with it.

Surround yourself of what you love: even if your pieces aren`t expensive or valuable, they are still part of you and you can create a nice display that will light up your home, create a focal point and create a unique space.

Think outside the box:  I have selected from Pinterest some images that I am sure will inspire you. As you can see you do not need to perfectly align your collection.
