I don’t have a drop of yellow in my home or my wardrobe, but I’m warming to its charms. I have to admit that with all this rain lately, yellow has a fresh appeal. It’s sunny, invigorating and a great companion for grey — everyone’s go to neutral these days.

I was also drawn to this textured painting by artist Kay Plante. Her interest in natural forms is a common thread in her work.

This shiny mortar and pestle would be beautiful in a white kitchen. It’s available at the Art Gallery of Ontario gift shop.
Yup, yellow always works with grey.
Talented artist Karen Johnston of Mosaicworks recently created this yellow mirror for her daughter’s room. The detail is reminiscent of a finely beaded gown.

Artist Alanna Cavanagh is known for her original silk screen prints. This is one of the screens from her popular menswear series. I love the contrasting finishes.
I’m a big fan of Alanna’s style. This is one of her recent pen and ink drawings in yellow. So fresh.
Vancouver interior designer, artist and blogger Michelle Morelan creates magic with this abstract yellow oxide acrylic painting. To see more of Michelle’s work check out her website here or her blog here.
Okay, I admit I did plant some yellow flowers this week. I’m hoping they’ll signal the end to all this rain.
Ducks Unlimited. In case the rain continues! Have a sunny week.
