I am loving my new purple orchid in my yellow living room .... It's so cheerful for spring!!!! I asked my husband to bring home a few things from the grocery store after work the other day and he came home with this beautiful orchid! I am one lucky girl!!!! Stop-and -shop always has beautiful orchids! They also usually have beautiful peonies in late spring as well !!! I am so happy spring is finally here!!!!

I love neutral colors and could be perfectly content with an entire house filled with white, beige, tan and grey! But color can help change the mood of your home and make it feel so much more cheerful! Having my son has brought so much excitement and cheer into our lives! And don't you want your home ultimately to represent you and your family?!? So I wanted to add some of his sunshine throughout the house and therefore choose yellow for the living room/dinning room! Since I have an open floor plan (kitchen, living , dining combination) I am now thinking of ways to incorporate yellow into my all white kitchen. Look at these beautiful "colorful" white kitchens! I will probably never be daring enough to add THAT much color in my house...but it is nice to admire others who do!
A Beautiful Yellow and White Kitchen!
Accents of Turquoise and blue
BOLD TURQUOISE AND WHITE
Fianaly Beautiful light pink accents! More my style ! Pink is still a unique choice for a kitchen! It works so beautiful in these three spaces! Don't you think?

I love buying all sorts of items from Etsy! I have purchased everything from pictures, t-shirts, ties, birthday decor and even cookies. I love purchasing hand made and customizable items! My all time favorite item to buy from Etsy is pillow covers! I bought my first few Etsy pillow covers from The Home Centric! She is amazing! She lives in India and all the pillows are made by hand with beautiful fabric. She is even making curtains now which I am very excited about!!! My original color scheme was green and white (See below) and I still use these pillows during the holiday season! These pillows were purchased in January 2010. You just can not find this handmade quality in a store!!!!!!
Today I was thrilled to find this package in the mail! These pillows are from Turkey also from Estsy at PillowMe! I was searching for a pillow that would blend well with the yellow medallion rug I have and the Yellow Damask Pillows that I already owned. PillowMe had excellent service! The packaging was beautiful. the shipping was extra fast, and she even sent me an extra pillow cover due to a small confusion/language barrier! I will definitely buy from this store again!
Here is the Etsy ad of the pillow cover I purchased! It can be hard to tell the exact color online
I was so excited to see when it arrived that the color matched perfectly with my rug and cream drapes! YAY!
I wanted the color to coordinate with my cream silk drapes ,and yellow rug but not clash with the strong patterns already on the rug and demask pillows! I was stumped... until I found these on Etsy!!!! Aren't they simple and beautiful? They coordinate with out clashing with the other pillows!
The yellow damask pillows are also from Etsy from thislittlehome. You will also find afordable curtians on this site too!

LOOK WHAT I DID TODAY !!! I changed my picture wall to yellow photos for spring and to match my living room decor! It took a lot of convincing from family and friends for me to add some color (I mostly use beige and white in my decorating) but it certainly looks cheerful for spring! The rug is from West Elm and my lovely sister bought it for me for Christmas.
