daffodils, forsythia and all things yellow

24 Mar

After all the writing about black and white, I’ve been curiously drawn to all things yellow, both online and in the real world.

And after this dreary winter, daffodils and forsythia are definitely my unicorn chasers.

Sadly, I believe this wallpaper is discontinued, but I’ve just learned about David Hicks and will feature more designs in the future.

Daffodils always remind me of the Meadow line of bedding and decor from Amenity.

I love all the Amenity designs, which range from woodlands to wetlands to meadows.  Amenity linens are all organic and even made with organic dyes.  Of course, they’re of the highest quality, which is why they’re available at Design Public.  

on orders $50+

As you can tell from the photo above, I’m a very amateur photographer.  But if you want some real photography, you really can’t miss with the prints I found on Etsy.

Top: Curiously yellow.  Bottom: A little dream.

The above two photos are the work of a woman named Gordana Adamovic-Mladenovic, of Windsor, Ontario (by way of Sarajevo).  Her shop is found under the name Ajawin.

There’s something simply beautiful about her work, which is available on 8×8 archival paper, ready for framing and – best of all – only $20 each. 

Gordana’s Flickr page features more photos, each one more beautiful than the last. 

 My favorite photo of the day.
