From crisp canary yellow to PANTONE‘s Spring 2015 palette’s earthy Custard – yellow pops – making an interior brighter, while still feeling calm and harmonious.
Especially as we find ourselves in the dark winter months of the New Year, refreshing your home, whether modern, traditional or somewhere between, with yellows will reinvigorate your space.
We like balancing yellows with grey or dark blue.
We’re not alone in loving this color to bring a bit of spring into dreary winter days. Haute-living Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic just posted a blog saying hello to yellows, too. Be sure to check out her fantastic selection of this favourite hue.

Here’s some of our top picks that are not only considerate of space, but themselves conversation starters!
Plaids in unexpected ways is one of our favorite trends of the season.
Play with plaids in your space and wardrobe with accessories and accents in the popular winter pattern. Rethink traditional plaids with print mixing – like tartan against stripes or contrast a classic, sophisticated check-print with a pop modern pattern or leathers and metal.

We love these playful new equestrian-inspired wallpapers from Hermes!
After a long, long winter we can’t help but crave that “island feel”. Even if you’re not lucky enough to be jetsetting off to warmer climates, we invite you unpack your resort wear and get inspired with a punch of the tropics from these cool accents of palms, ferns, playful citrus tones, and clean black and white. You can almost smell the warm ocean breeze …
