Currently, I am totally obsessed with yellow, black and white, and I’m trying to accumulate the right objects in this palette for my own bedroom (the turquoise and red thing I had going on does not go with the blue walls in my new place, and lord knows I am not painting that room anytime soon). Many of my fellow bloggers have covered this palette before, but I thought I would try to get a nice collection of images together for you to enjoy:

Alright, I’m going to put it out there and show you what I have so far. Any suggestions for other things I should be adding? I am anxiously awaiting the yellow shelves I ordered from House Eclectic:

    Anna, I so wish Black and Spiro was down the street from me and not 11,000 miles away. I love what you’ve been doing with blue and white – your new wallpaper is to die for!

    I usually don’t like that color combo. It’s way too LOUD! But I guess if you use the right amount of yellow in the right tint, it could be okay. But I’ve heard that yellow is not a good color for a bedroom. It’s supposed to make people cranky. So be careful with the yellow. Not too much!

    How did the yellow shelves you ordered from House Eclectic turn out?

    They took forever, as H.E. was experiencing some growing pains after getting a lot of press and expanding from purely wholesale to retail, which is understandable, and they worked with me nicely on it. I love them, but I goofed, they are out of scale with the monstrous bed I bought, and I wished I’d ordered the larger size. My bed dwarfs them a bit, but that’s my own fault. They are really nice, better in person than the pictures; I’d recommend them.

    I know this post if 5 years old but it’s still relevant, even if just to teach those of us less versed in interior design about how important a colour pallet really is!
