Blog Party: Inspiration Tuesday!!

Hey guys, welcome to the party!  It’s Inspiration Tuesday on IGTBH!!

Wanna Party?

As you know from yesterday’s post, this blog party is all about inspiration – and today I’m inspired by gorgeous pops of yellow in home design.

It’s funny, I first came up with the idea for this post when I was admiring the bridesmaid dresses that two of my friends are wearing in an upcoming wedding – they are a trendy shade of chartreuse, which is also a big color in home decor.  Those dresses got me thinking – yellow is such a fun and sunny color, so how could it be incorporated in the home?

For all you bold people out there that like to really commit, you could go whole hog with furniture in shades of lemon, acid yellow, or even buttercup:

Me, however, I’m more of a commitment-phobe – so maybe something cheap and easily changeable would be the way to go, like painting the walls:

Or you could work with what you already have and arrange your bookcases in color blocks – talk about some serious impact for zero dollars!

And yellow in accessories is lovely, too.  Don’t you think feel like it instantly energizes these spaces?

And, of course, bright shocks of yellow on the wall can really make a statement – big or small.  (And I think the yellow and periwinkle combo is to die for!)

So what are you inspired by today?  We’d all love to swing by your blog for some inspiration – if you’d like to join in on the fun, just add your link below.   Here are a few pointers:

  1. Make sure that you add the permalink to your specific blog post (like, instead of your general blog address.
  2. Give everybody an idea of what you’re inspired by in parentheses after your blog name – like Liz @ It’s Great To Be Home (yellow in home decor).
  3. Make sure that your link works – otherwise it might get deleted (no fun!).
  4. Try to include a link to this party somewhere in your post so that your readers can get in on the party!
  5. Click on the other participants’ links and let them know if they’ve inspired you!

Let’s get this party started!!
