Put on a happy face with yellow décor
Happy-face yellow -- not midcentury mustard or the soft shade of an Easter chick -- is the color of choice for home furnishings this spring. “Yellow is associated with joy, happiness and energy, a very bold color that allows people to express confidence,” says BlissLiving Home designer Mei Xu, who uses it on the glossy Empire throw pillow and a pair of her fragrant Fu Dog candles. The color also pops up on the Marbella buffet from Shine Home, inexpensive chairs at CB2, a teapot at TableArt in L.A. and wire bowls from BoConcept in Santa Monica.
