Midday Muse: Not-So-Mellow Yellow

I've never quite gravitated towards the color yellow. But, it has become trendy, and lately I've been seeing bright, taxi-cab yellow everywhere from modern retailers like Ikea to traditional shops like Anthropologie. Even New York magazine is spotted with the hue. When you look back at the pale yellows that were trendy a year ago, it seems to be that "mellow yellow" is no more. While I don't actually mind these vibrant yellows, and find them quite cheerful, I worry that I'll tire of them quickly. I think the home office shown here does a good job of integrating the color in a way that can be temporary. The basics of the space are the silvery gray desk and rug, and two white lamps. If next month turquoise is the It color, a simple slipcover for the ottoman can be bought and turquoise stripes painted to bring the space up to date. Maybe yellow will never be for you, but if you're integrating trends into your home (or wardrobe), you should always do so in a way that isn't permanent. Invest in timeless pieces, and bring in trends with color and pattern that can be easily abandoned.
