Celebrate with yellow.

A widespread use of yellow usually requires quite a lot of chutzpah in the world of design, but that shouldn’t stop you from working with it. It certainly hasn’t stopped interior designer Kelly Wearstler, whose 2004 book Modern Glamour is filled (and covered) with bold yellow elements.

I personally love yellow when it’s used joyfully, like in the Fresh Flower Pavilion designed by Tonkin Liu for the 2008 London Festival of Architecture.

Another one of my favorite yellow projects is the installation Bloom, done in 2007 by Goldsmiths student Sam Spencer in Wapping. (For another fun project with umbrellas, check out the Bucky Bar).


April 18’s daily design idea is when given the option, choose yellow (at least sometimes).
