Farewell My Lovely
Did you hear that Crayola, the leading maker of crayons here in the U.S., announced the retirement of one of its crayons, one of its many yellows called Dandelion? As a child of the seventies, it just brought me back to all that I remember in both interior design and fashion that was that shade of yellow. And then I realized, like much of what we see trending right now, that what's old is new again. So really, we don't need to be sad that Dandelion is gone because it's really still with us in so many things:
The classic J. Crew Tippi sweater--hello spring! Their thin merino wool is perfect for those crisp days when temps are improving, but not quite yet. It begs crisp white toothpick jeans, navy and white espadrilles, and a bouquet of daffodils.
Though we might be dipping our toes into goldenrod territory, this is still in the yellowy floral class that makes for a striking dress by ModCloth, perfect for work or Sunday brunch.
Now these Fly London ankle sandals from Nordstrom get me excited. Some of you may remember the Cherokee wedge sandal craze of the eighties. Fast forward and now we have a crisp, modern version with a white base and MARIGOLD straps.
This golden lamp from Crate and Barrel, Ella, will provide that pop of color and warmth your dramatic living room may need if you've painted it in one of the Scandinavian grays that are all the rage.
Have you noticed that wallpaper is making a comeback? Look at this bold botanical pattern in yellows and golds by LA's own Justina Blakeney for Hygge and West. It sets an immediate vacation vibe without leaving your home!
