Have some fun in the sun — indoors! Yellow is a color that’s known to boost energy and bring joy. It’s also attention grabbing, and these beautiful yellow pieces from local retailers instantly add visual interest and brightness to any space. We love this suggestion from John Gurman of Loom Exquisite Textiles: “Try adding color to a small powder room with a fun valance, or turn it into a jewel box by painting the walls a sunshine yellow!”
