Interior Obsessions: Yellow Chair

Hally's, Parsons Green, London

Every once in a while, there’s an object that keeps popping up that I would never think of buying if I saw it on its own. Something in a color that typically doesn’t appeal to me. But everywhere I turn, these yellow chairs keep taking an otherwise neutral space and injecting a shot of life.

Yellow is not my favorite color. Ever since I had my ‘colors’ done and was told that the only yellow I could ever wear was a super-light icy tone, I have avoided it like the plague. But it is one of my husband’s favorites, so I try to keep an open mind. And these yellow chairs, ranging from powdered coated industrial, to refinished rattan, to modern marvel, are just the ticket.

Do you have a spot that a yellow chair might perk up?

I’m the same as you, yellow isn’t my fave colour but recently I have become obsessed with owning this yellow bedside table from the new ikea stockholm range…just because its yellow! I think it’s because it’s a happy colour…x

I love yellow so much.
I had this yellow bikini in high school and it was my favourite piece of swimwear.

Never thought about adding a pop of yellow to my living room or kitchen area.

Wow, I never knew bright yellow could add so much to a room without being TOO much but this is beautiful.
