Yellow color palettes for home decor come in many variations from the palest of pale background shades to bright “in your face” wake up hues. Today, we’re sharing one of our favorite yellows, a soft buttery tone that’s warm and inviting while maintaining a quiet elegance.
We love this yellow hue on the front door. Don’t you think it says, “Welcome, come in and visit for a while.”
Velvet sofas are at the top of many “must have for my home” lists. Color them buttery yellow and they’re even more coveted. Color and texture come together beautifully in this lovely pair of lush sofas.
A hallway with exquisite style shows off the lovely glow of buttery yellow.
In the kitchen above, cabinets are painted in warm happy yellow. It’s a perfect shade to wake up to.
Soft yellow accents turn this black and white enclosed porch into a picture perfect place to relax. We love this look.
A bedroom retreat is serene and inviting in a pale buttery yellow palette. It’s lovely, don’t you think?
What clever idea! Crossword tiles in the shower of the white, black and yellow bath are a whimsical twist we didn’t see coming.
When bringing the look of yellow outside on to the deck, choose shades that take it to the darker side of buttery yellow so the color will be beautiful rather than washed out.

Those who love pink in all its appealing shades are always happy to see that there is no shortage of images of pretty pink rooms to be found online. Lately, we’ve been noticing lots of pale pink home decor both indoors and out. We hope you will enjoy seeing some of our favorites:

It seems black and white stripes work beautifully with any style, from traditional to contemporary and beyond. Here are some of our favorite outdoor spaces:

Today, we’re continuing our exploration of black and white decor. In case you missed it, be sure to check out last week’s post, “Decor Inspiration: Black and White Stripes.” We think every black and white space deserves eye-catching light fixtures. WAC Lighting offers many exciting options to consider. Here’s just a taste of what you can expect:
The W.A.C. Lighting Alpa LED Modern / Contemporary Pendant Wall Sconce is a marvelous addition to any contemporary black and white space. You know we are fascinated by black and white stripes and these are simply perfect with a white dome pendant.
Perhaps your design aesthetic calls for an even simpler look. The sconce above is also available in black and white (no stripes) a look that’s sleek and perhaps a bit more dramatic.
One more lighting option with black and white stripes is the W.A.C. Lighting Tulum LED Modern / Contemporary Pendant Wall Sconce. It features a lovely square white glass pendant light, a more angular look that’s stunning in a contemporary space.
Craving a touch of gold in your black and white room? Consider the dwelLED Kiss pendant with a sophisticated brass finish. (It also comes in brushed nickel or chrome.)
A flash of red glass can bring a black and white room to life. The Lauren contemporary wall sconce can do just that. We want to share this one even though its currently out of stock, you can asked to be notified when it’s again available. It’s worth the wait.
Made especially for black and white spaces where a pop or two of blue is what’s missing, the W.A.C. Lighting Rhea LED Modern / Contemporary Wall Sconce should suit nicely. With both color and texture this lovely light will fascinate.
Maybe a touch of sunny yellow glass will complete your black and white room. Can you imagine what the Jill sconce in a golden hue will look like set against a black and white striped wall?
Every black and white foyer needs a stunning chandelier. The Cascade is beaded perfection–a most stunning addition for the entryway, dining room or bedroom.
