Red and Yellow

Last year this time I was finding myself very into red and that vintage green.

This year though I find myself really drawn to yellow and of course red.


My yellow Dutch iris are just gorgeous right now. I hope I have some for an Easter bouquet.
But my heart has and always will have a place for red.


But oh those iris.


Red is a mainstay and will always be in my home but I think for this year I may do some decorating in:

Red and yellow. So cheery. I think it screams farmhouse. Hmm I see a theme for my shelf in the near future when the Easter stuff comes down.

  5. You decorating is always cute!
    Looking forward to seeing how things come together.

    I also love yellow and red.. such a happy color combination.

    Our new couches are yellow and red country style couches...I really love them.
    Each morning I walk in the living room and those couches just put a huge smile on my face :)

    Happy Easter!!

  10. I wonder why we suddenly start 'seeing' a colour and have to have it around us? You can't get cheerier colours than the ones you are drawn to! ~ Maureen

  19. Red and yellow are the two cheeriest colors in the color wheel. They just say happiness to me. I love that darling little stove. I go back and forth between the red retro theme in my kitchen and cottage whites in the rest of my house, but one thing is for sure, red is my fav!

  20. You know where I stand on yellow, yellow house painted yellow inside. My favorite roses are yellow. Our irises at the old house are yellow and are likely 50 years old or more.

    Happy Easter!

  24. Yellow and red are my favorite color combination. They make my vintage style kitchen so cheery and bright. If you like red and yellow then you might enjoy my lamp makeover I recently did.

  31. To me, red is a neutral. I wear a lot of read and have it in every room - love the sunny yellow Iris - perfectly cheerful for spring. I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness - I hope to see you again this afternoon!
