It’s Memorial Day weekend! Even though it’s not the official first day of summer, Memorial Day just seems like the kick-off to the summer season! Are you ready? I’ve been busy getting my home summer ready! What does that mean? For me, I want my home to feel lighter and brighter in the summer months! I’m replacing heavy fabrics with light and airy ones and maybe adding punch of color, like a summer yellow like I did in 2019.
That year I used yellow in my living room, kitchen, and dining room areas to lighten and brighten things up for the warm months of summer! Do you remember back in the 90’s when walls were painted in a Tuscan yellow? I have to admit I did have some of that going on in my home! But, adding pops of summer yellow isn’t quite the same! I think summer yellow is a brighter and truer yellow, not the mustard or Tuscan yellow.
Every year when I update my home for the new season, I always look back on my blog at what I’ve done in previous years. And, the year that I used this yellow stood out to me! My favourite part is definitely the living room where I used the lemon botanical prints that are available in my Free Printable Library! The pops of yellow pared with the green plants seems so fresh and summery to me still! And, it may have even inspired me a bit with my decor on my summer screen porch this year (hint, hint).

Happy yellow says “summer”. Thanks for sharing
My basic color is blue and white and I add pops of color. I do not like all white walls and furniture as too antiseptic to me. Would be afraid to live in that atmosphere! Pops of color go great with blues!
I love your idea to use pops of yellow for summer decorating. My guest room is still painted lemon yellow from the 90s. I was in there cleaning this week and thought to myself that it won’t be long until a shade of yellow is once again a popular wall color. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
Lovely touch, a bit of yellow sings to the soul of summer!
