The Yellow

Yup! The Yellow!

The yellow glistens.
It glistens with various yellows,
Citrons, oranges and greens.

Isn’t there something so refreshing about yellow, irrespective of the shade, of which there are a thousand (amber, ochre, mustard, lime, neon, golden, sunlight, orange. that’s a Yellow too, no!)? Its always like a pleasant surprise, it springs upon you and forces you to smile. Why else do you think those smiley stress buster balls are yellow?

And don’t yellow and grey make such a charming pair! I love them individually and I love them even more together. But I can only have small yellow accents in my home, I can’t deal with too much yellow, its much too happy for one like me, you know with a dark and broody side!

Anyway since I am really coveting a lovely pair of yellow pants/shorts these days, here’s a collage dedicated to yellow.


Neons are so in vogue these days, but you do need to have a certain panache to be able to pull it off and I am not entirely certain I have what it takes, so i am just going to stick to a basic yellow or a lemon yellow, or maybe maize yellow. There we go again! Psst!

Books do furnish a room

There is something about books that makes my heart skip a beat especially when arranged beautifully in bookshelves and especially when present in a large numbers! eBooks are nice and everything but kind of phoney world would this be without real books!?

Anyway, here are some pictures of gorgeous, gorgeous bookshelves.


Don’t miss the mirror panelling on this one!


This one might be my favorite.


As a child, I grew up desperately wanting a beautiful bookshelf, but for some reason that never came to pass and I never found a bookshelf that gave me joy. Thankfully those days of yearning are over, I now have a beautiful dark-colored wooden bookshelf all of my own with books (re)arranged by color 🙂 slightly modern and a tad traditional and basically just beautiful! I promise to post pictures someday.

Here’s a quote I am hung up on right now by the very wise and very witty Oscar Wilde.

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

That is not to say that this is me, because I am quite certain I am crouched down in there and bawling my lungs out!! But I love it anyway!
