Color My World Challenge: Inspiration

Color My World 2
Welcome to Week 1 of the Color My World Challenge!
I was so excited when Suzy from Saved by Suzy and Jessamie from Bird and Branch Redesign asked me to be part of this series. The challenge is to choose a color that you normally don’t use and complete 3 projects with it: Décor, Fabric and Paint.
I chose…
AH! What was I thinking??? I have used yellow a couple of times and never loved it as the main color for a room. On the other hand, I’ve loved the rooms that I’ve seen that use it well. So, I decided to use my Guest room and use the yellow as an accent. But I need some inspiration. Otherwise, there’s a very real possibility that I won’t like it just like the other rooms.
This is my primary fabric from which I’m pulling all my colors:
Here’s some inspiration for my yellow projects, but I’m not going to tell you how I’m going to implement all of these things. There’s got to be a little surprise right?

This isn’t my exact palette but it’s pretty close. Come back next week to see my first project for Décor!
Also, be planning a project for yourself! At the end of this series, we’re hosting a huge linnk party so that everyone can share how they implemented color! Visit these other amazing blogs that are participating in the Challenge! It’ll be fun to see the colors that everyone picks and how they apply them over the next month.

  1. I don't have any yellow in my current house and am excited to see what you do with this happy color! Love your inspirations - so cheerful!

  2. yellow is my new love! I used it on this hutch!


    Thanks for more inspiration!

  3. Yay for yellow! I love your palette, it looks fresh and sophisticated. I can't wait to see what you do!

  4. It's going to look so good with that blue! Best of luck and it's awesome that you're sticking with it on the yellow!

  5. Ohh, I love yellow. I may add that as well. Sheesh. I love color, so it's tough to decide... But yeah, I may layer that in at a future date. Can't wait to see how it goes. I finally did my post!

  6. I've been looking foward to your post because I LOVE all of the things I've seen you pinning. You are going to rock it Maury!

  7. First off, I had to go back and add your name to the list. When I added it I had to adjust the font size. I couldn't get it to match the emailed size so I could either go bigger or smaller, so yours is the biggest font on my list. Maybe more people will visit because it totally stands out-Ha!

    Anyway, I love yellow. It's such a fun, happy color and even as an accent I think it will be perfect for a guest room.

  8. Yellow would be a challenge for me too, but it looks like you're going to do something amazing! Love that striped throw!

  9. The only shade of yellow that I have ever used is buttercream and I loved it. I had a gorgeous carpet in that color and it went with everything!

  10. i love yellow! i can't wait to see what you do with it!

  11. Wow love the inspiration. Can't wait to see what you do.

  12. I think you'll like it this time, looks like you have some great inspiration pics and color palettes too! Excited to see what you do in the guest room!

  13. I love yellow! This will look great with the greens and blues!

  14. Choosing yellow is so brave! I love seeing yellow in other people's projects/homes, but I don't myself gravitating toward it often. I can't wait to see what you do. :)
