Not So Mellow Yellow

After the previous post on the impact of color I came across this image from an old copy of World of Interiors showing the bright yellow study of a rustic Scottish hunting lodge. The bold yellow of the image instantly attracted me and I had to wonder how different this space would feel just by changing the color. The intriguing element of this image for me is the relationship of all those black accessories against the yellow. It’s bright and cheerful but still somewhat masculine, even with that ruffle on the chintz-covered pillow. The unusual cushion upholstery is due to the owner’s belief that it takes twenty years to break in new leather and wishing to extend the life of his chair has simply recovered the worn cushions.
