Yellow... the ways I love thee...

Phew it's Friday! I've made good on my promise to get up early every day this week. Either 5.15am or 6.45am - depending on the husband's routine. Most mornings are 5.15am - that's when he leaves the house, not gets up!! Crazy I know! And yep I admit yesterday I really really really wanted to ignore him, feign the deepest of sleeps, then lash out at him for daring to actually flick the lights on to wake me up and literally deposit me in my office chair! But he does have a cup of green tea all ready for me so I can't complain, and I have asked him to do it regardless of my protests. I'm trying out this new routine of going to bed at a reasonable time instead of staying up working all hours. I'm sure I'll be more productive this way. So far it's working!! Even if I did sneak in a 30 min nap later in the day :-) And today... Friday, I plan on shutting the computer off around 1ish to spend the afternoon hanging with a friend who's up in Auckland for the day! Yay!

Today I have a couple more of my yellow colour love boards. Click here to see the first two from earlier in the week.

Whilst I know purple and yellow is never going to be everyone's cup of tea, done in the right way it can be such a striking combination. I don't personally like it too bold, I prefer it with a softer smoky lilac or lavender as well as a more intense purple. Invitation: as yet unnamed!!
Another more autumnal palette. I have a bit of a love affair going on with anything terracotta right now and mixed with a mustard yellow it's perfection. So warm and inviting! Invitation: as yet unnamed!!

Purple and yellow is definitely my cup of tea! :D I primarily love purple but combine it with yellow will give out an amazing, "deliciously" result. :D

I like yellow but not my favorite color. I do like how it is mixed with the color palette provided. :D
Nice one!
