Color To Watch In 2012: Yellow

If last year’s color sightings are any indication, 2012 could be a huge year for yellow.


This radiant color has already graced the cover of  House Beautiful’s February 2012 issue.  That’s a prime example of how home design often follows fashion:

Yellow was spotted all over the runway during New York Fashion Week back in September, and this sun-drenched hue quickly moved into celebrity wardrobes…


…Including the closet of Malia Obama, who is becoming quite the tastemaker herself.  She wore this gorgeous yellow, satin dress to the Christmas In Washington event.

Yellow has the amazing ability to add sunshine where there is none…

…And it makes a sunny space feel even warmer and more inviting.

Yellow also represents the first flowers of spring.

  1. You know I love yellow! Even as a teenager (HOW many years ago???) my room was yellow. And now, of course, thanks to you, my kitchen is so sunny and wonderfully yellow!
    And yes, Malia is just gorgeous in that yellow top!
    Happy New Year Kelly!
