Color Crush: Mustard Yellow & Coral Pink

 Perhaps it’s the fact that we’re emerging from months of gray skies and white landscapes, but I'm loving saturated yellow hues this spring. I spotted this sunny yellow sofa on Pinterest the other day, and thought it would be the perfect intensity to pair wth my coral star quilt in shades of peach, pink and the darkest navy blue.  If you’re not quite sure you can commit to this much yellow, try the shade in accessories like throw pillows, display bowls or small furniture pieces.  Yellow pairs especially well with pink and cream, neutrals like grey and navy, and looks beautiful with natural woods and shiny gold accents.
