Color Crush: Saffron Yellow

Happy Wednesday!  I love that we are already halfway through the week.  Did you have a good Memorial Day?  I came back so relaxed and rejuvenated after a weekend stay at Oohla Bean.  I can't wait to share pictures and recap the trip for you, but before I dive in to that I just want to take a moment to enjoy a little color.  Although I have never before been particularly drawn to yellow, this year I can't seem to get enough of it.  I love seeing interior designers use the hue in fresh, contemporary applications that don't feel stuffy.  One of my favorite shades of yellow is saffron- a golden yellow that resembles the color of the tip of the saffron crocus thread, from which the spice saffron is derived. Houston-based designer Eleanor Cummings infused this sunroom with a mix of bright colors, but the golden yellows really stand out:

To me, yellow always mixes well with blue.  I love to see various tones of one hue in the same room.

Yellow can also make a statement when standing alone. How fabulous is this glossy yellow front door from a house in Palm Springs?

Are you a fan of saffron yellow?  If so, what color do you most love to see it paired with?
