We interrupt this Monday for yellow stripes

Waking up on a Monday morning wouldn’t be so bad if… there were yellow stripes involved to wake you up.

With a room this bold and bright, you might even put on your sunglasses as you wake up in the morning!

Ahhhh, the view from laying on the bed is fabulous!

The perfect place to daydream.

Love how the daybed is framed by the curtains to make it a cozy spot, but the window plus the stripes keeps it bright and light in there.

And the curtain trim? Adorable.

This room would be fabulous even if you chose a different color or shade of yellow.

But a yellow room sure would wake you up in the morning, wouldn’t it?

Carry on with your Monday.

  3. My most favorite thing is how the daybed is tucked into that alcove…I love it when beds are like that surrounded by a curtain…so cozy!!

  4. I have a super sweet color of yellow in my bedroom. It’s called “butter” and it looks just like that, the pale subtle yellow. We painted it that color 4 years ago and still remark how much we like the color.

  6. Love the yellow stripes. This room reminds me of Layla’s striped room with the daybed at the Lettered Cottage. I want to curl up and finish reading my book in this sunshiny room!

  7. I LOVE yellow! Most of the walls in our home are yellow and it feels cheery even on a rainy day!!

  8. My favorite yellow paint is STRAW from Benjamin Moore. A boring title for paint, but an amazing buttery color. Thanks for sharing these photos.

    BTW, I made it to Home Goods during my visit to Chicago. Of course, I had to shop small, to fit it in my suitcase.

    Happy Monday.

  13. Oh wow! What a beautiful room!!!!! I love the yellow stripes…and not the usual “up and down” stripes! LOL

    How fun and cheery! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face on this humid Monday morning!

  14. This might be my favorite post ever.. yellow AND stripes!? Delightful!! And the daybed in the alcove is just too cozy. Love it.
    My bedroom is painted a warm gold/yellow which I LOVED on the chip but I worried about once it started going up on the walls… but I’ve never looked back! It’s perfect in the winter to keep me cheery and wonderful in the mornings. Everyone should have a yellow bedroom. ;)

  15. Now I do love yellow, but my favorite part of this room is the yellow ceiling.

  16. Your Northwest roots are evident as you provide “Sunshine” on our gloomy August day! Happy Monday!

  17. I LOVE that room. I drooled over the HGTV dream home back in 2008 and have had pictures of all of the rooms saved on my computer ever since, so I immediately knew where your pictures were from!
    Some day I will paint yellow stripes in my house…some day. It would really cheer up the scenery here in the Northwest :)

  20. Pictures of that room brightened my Monday—imagine how happy one would be waking up in that room every day!

  21. The stripes and embroidered pillows in the room are gorgeous! I assume the pillows were the inspiration pieces.

    We painted our walls in the previous two houses a color called Sweet Butter. It was such a light soft warm yellow that it always felt like the room was bathed in early morning sunshine. The color isn’t available anymore, but I still have the original paint strip and will be recreating it for our laundry room in the basement when we finish it. With no windows in the room I hope it gives it a lovely sunshine feeling.

  22. Always love yellow and white…fabulous!

  23. The curtains around the bed make it just SOOOO PERFECT!!!! I love it! I want curtains around my bed!! I’m actually not a huge fan of yellow, but balanced with the white I actually like this.

  24. I love how the stripes are just in the sleeping quarters. It makes it totally it’s own retreat. What a great room to relax in and to go to if you need a little cheering up. My favorite part of this room are the yellow decorative pillows. Those are to die for!

  25. drool. I love yellow. I love that room! I could wake up really chipper in a room like that!

    I’m in love. Waking up everyday in a room like this would put any girl in a good mood. I can’t seem to convince my hubby of that fact though. I love how they put the pics in the stripes. I may have to try that, although it won’t be in yellow (again the hubby).

  36. Oh I love, love, love that idea! Even though yellow is the “hardest color on your eyes”, I still love it. It’s so sunny and cheerful!

  37. sometimes i get a little envious looking at these lovely rooms–all my rooms are small, the ceilings are normal height, the windows are small, the house gets no direct sunlight, there is no foyer, there is only one bathroom…sigh…i would really love to implement some of these ideas, but honestly don’t know where to start in my little bungalow…

    • Oh, Stripes are the PERFECT thing to do in a small room with normal windows! My girls had the tiniest bedrooms ever when they were young. Very low ceilings too. We painted stripes in each of their rooms and they felt so much bigger and it gave them so much personality!!! Most of us don’t have the perfect rooms, but you just need to find a little piece of inspiration to implement, like stripes!
