Yellow is not my favorite color. It’s not even close — well that’s a lie, actually. My favorite color is green, so in fact, it’s quite close. But I rarely use yellow in my design decisions, and I never choose it over something else. When I see it used in a smart, restrained way, however — like in this bathroom makeover from designer Lori Andrews — it’s clear to me that in the right context, yellow provides pure happiness. Who doesn’t want pure happiness?
Look at this bathroom! It’s such a clean, cheery place. The combination of that bright daffodil hue with the crisp white and pale wood is making me smile like crazy. I love the Scandinavian details, like the curved plywood, the woven seat on the chair and the dominance of the pristine white. It’s just so beautiful and super fun — can I live in this bathroom? Great work, Lori! — Kate
