Color of the Moment: Yellow Fever

Yellow Golden Globes 2015

 My favorite looks from Sunday’s Golden Globes turned out to be strapless yellow sheaths- Naomi Watts in Gucci, Taylor Swift in Jenny Packham, and Leslie Mann in Kaufman Franco. It was a fresh and unexpected color that you don’t often see on the red carpet and each of these ladies nailed it from the fit, to the accessories, and the actual shades of yellow. It can be a tough color to get right! Slowly, but surely, more and more yellow pieces have been finding their way into my closet. It’s a universally flattering shade when it comes to clothing—try it, you might be surprised; and it acts as a great neutral when it comes to interiors. I think most of us, myself included, have typically thought of yellow as more of an accent color, but it pairs beautifully with so many other colors and has a way of energizing a space.

Chris Martin has written a song about this color and Sasha Adler has proclaimed “yellow goes with almost anything in my world”. Beautiful though possibly polarizing, I am totally loving bright, saturated shades of yellow. Are you a fan of yellow? Ask yourself again at the end of this post. You may just change your mind.

  1. I have always loved yellows in home decor. But I had a very hard time warming up to all the yellow dresses at the golden globes. It was definitely a thing. Never thought of wearing yellow myself. Somehow I think we’ll see lots of it in the stores this spring. I’ll have to give it a try:)

  2. I’m such a fan of yellow and have a yellow and white bamboo wallpaper in my kitchen – makes me happy every morning! The yellow dresses were amazing at the Golden Globes…chic and eye catching!

  3. Love yellow Paloma and the yellow gowns worn at the Golden Globes were so classic. At home, what a burst of sunshine which many of us can use right now!!

  4. Hi Palmoma, Couldn’t agree more that the ladies in bright cheery yellow were the highlight of on the Golden Globes red carpet. A big pop or just a little, I love to see homes and people dressed up in sunshine this time of year. XO
