guest post - Laurel of The Lovely Bee

Hello, darlings!

Since I'm on vacay, I've asked some of my friends to fill in for me on OYD. First up is Laurel with The Lovely Bee. Do please check out her blog and her clever Etsy shop. It's darling, just like her.

Don't you love honeybees? Remember the article I wrote on them for Portico Jackson?

Hello, Olive You Darling readers!! I’m so honored that my friend Mary Straton asked me to guest post for her today! Fun fact: I’ve admired her blog for longer than I’ve known her! Life’s funny like that, ain’t it?!
So my topic today is something I’ve been a little too obsessed with for a little too long: The color yellow in the home.
Color Crush: Yellow // The Lovely Bee for Olive You Darling
Yellow is one of my favorite colors, for sure. It’s so bright, happy, and just works beautifully with so many other colors! The first yellow accent I added to the home my husband (who so sweetly lets me decorate however I wish!) and I share out in Madison was a mustard yellow lamp purchased the weekend my darling twin brother and his incredible wife got married! (So not only is this lamp awesome, but it's got a little story behind it!)
That lamp inspired a yellow band on the lead edges of the drapery adorning the window next to the table on which that yellow lamp lives. From there, adding yellow accents has become like getting plastic surgery (or so I hear…) One you start, you gotta keep doing a little here and a little there. It becomes an addiction!
Here. Take a look at how absolutely divine and inviting rooms with yellow incorporated can be:
I love moroccan style, so this bedroom really speaks to me!

I wouldn't hate some yellow accent doors somewhere in my house one day!

This kitchen!! The pops of yellow make it oh-so-happy!

Yes, yellow is my addiction.
The items I’m currently wishing, hoping, and dreaming to add to my yellow collection are as follows…
(1) How disgustingly gorgeous is this Hillary Thomas Rock n' Rolla howlite stone finial?! A friend of mine sent me the link to this (and others like it) and I now can't get them out of my mind!

(2) This little fridge from West Elm WILL be mine one day! They say it's lime green on their site, but I say it's chartreuse... Which translates to yellow! :)

(3) I have a large crush on this over-dyed yellow rug and think it would look completely fantastic in a number of rooms in my house...

(4) Lastly (for now anyway), this painting from View Gallery in Ridgeland, MS is OUT OF CONTROL gorgeous. This artist (Sophia) has incredbile style, and I particularly love the work she does that revolves around my favorite hue, like this one! (You can see more of her fab work here!)

So now you know all about my biggest color crush. I want to hear about yours! What is your favorite way to incorporate color into your home? And what color is it that you find to be as inspiring as I find yellow to be?!
Thanks again to Mary Straton for the opportunity to share with all of you! For more about me, head on over to my blog, { THE HIVE } and connect with me from there! I'd love to hear from you!
X peace! X
