We debuted Colour My Home with Mint almost a month ago and today we planned to bring you another pastel hue, lemon!
While lemon is all over the fashion world right now (along with other pastels), lemon homewares were somewhat challenging to track down so a few of our picks are particular zesty and bursting with colour.
The house I grew up in had a lemon yellow kitchen. Staring at those lemon-y walls every morning as I ate breakfast and when I walked through the door after school every afternoon, I am officially lemon-ed out in the paint department. However, I do love some lemon yellow kitchen accessories to add some sunshine to the hub of the home.
How amazing is this lamp shade?! Whether you are tapping away at the keyboard to finish an essay
, reading a book or making a phone call (on a retro meets modern technology handset!), a bit of zest around your study is a must – yellow is supposed to sharpen memory, spark creative thoughts and encourage communication.
I look at bedding, the same way I look at fashion. Go with neutrals – greys, blacks, whites, beige, even a tan – and then add some colour with a cushion, photo frame, throw rug or a few coloured candles (and when they are lemon cheesecake scented, well that is just a bonus!).
How do you like your lemon? Do you have any yellow around your house? What colour would you like featured in the next Colour My Home post?
