SUNNY SIDE UP

Yellow and white and everything bright - these are the colors of the sun in a hazy sky, sand and frothy waves, daffodils and snowdrops, and banana milkshakes. The "Vitamin D" episode of Glee - the ultimate in sunny entertainment - featured an up-beat number with the gals clad in deviled egg hues.




   If it's that much fun to wear, imagine living in it? And how can you think of yellow and white rooms, and not immediately be reminded of Kelly Wearstler? My favorite decor-scapes by Wearstler are her hotels; they're more accessible, and more livable, ironically, than the grand, almost baroque, decadence of her homes. One of her loveliest is the Viceroy Hotel in Palm Beach, and her striking yellow, white, and black palette was featured on the cover of her first book, Modern Glamour.

The hotel bar, Citron, is a frothy white, punctuated with shots of yellow and the rigorous repetition of geometric forms.
The interior:  one of the villas, and the lobby. "The Magic Eye"pattern makes the entrance fun and sunny, rather than heavy and stark, in these warm shades.

A lovely interior view - the white floor reflects the furnishings.

The outdoor pool and its black-trimmed canopies, a fashionable setting for swimming - and photo shoots.

Inspiration for your own home:  parson's desk and lamps, West Elm. Trina Turk pillow, Neiman Marcus. Chaise and hexagon shelving, CB2.





Pieces has a stunning selection of yellow, white, and black - the chevron rug would bring cheer to any room.

How I admire any blog post that transitions from Glee to Kelly Wearstler with barely a pause at banana milkshakes.
