Spring in the Kitchen

Spring in the Kitchen 2016 Flowers
Is there any color that signals that spring is here better than bright lemon yellow?

It is especially beautiful when paired with blue and white.
This color combination in my home is an old friend that makes an appearance in one way or another this time of year.

So when it was time to freshen things up for spring, yellow was the perfect choice for the kitchen.

Plus , how could I resist when I found these kitchen towels?

Isn’t that what the rebirth of spring promises?
We are all, with faith and  grace and humor , making lemonade in one way or another.

Isn’t that wonderful?

That is something that happens during the spring too-

we all begin to think we can do this thing- whatever it may be.

I believe that not only can we do it, but we can do it well, or at least with a smile on our face, no matter how wobbly .

I think of yellow as the smiling color.

And you? What is your favorite color this spring?

I hope your lemons are turning into lemonade too.

Two of the dearest bloggers in blog land are also sharing touches of spring in their kitchens today.

I love your yellows added to your color scheme. Yellow makes me happy, too!

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Good Morning Sweet Laura,

I agree with you, yellow just has a wonderful way of making everything a little happier.
Loving how you combine blue and yellow together!
Happy Monday too!

Stacey said...

Good Morning Laura. The pops of yellow in your bright blue and white kitchen are perfect! I just love how welcoming your space is. Having a soft place to sit in the kitchen probably makes all the difference and encourages others to join you. Even if they are just sitting. :)

I'd love to hang out in your kitchen with you.

Manu said...

Beautiful yellow flowers, my favourite!
Have a nice week

Theresa said...

Yellow does it for me too:) Makes me smile! I have a bouquet of yellow daffodils on my kitchen table right now! Have a blessed day dear Laura, HUGS!

Eilis said...

Your home looks so happy with the touches of yellow. Beautiful.

Yellow and blue is one of my favorite color pairings too. Love those towels!

Jeanie said...

In my neck of the woods -- MSU Spartan Green and White -- too much blue and yellow (maise, gold) can be trouble! It's the down-the-road U of M rivals! Not for me! I love those colors, and they always make me smile! They look terrific in your home!

I also love the combination of blue and yellow, if blue is so sober and elegant, yellow gives that touch of cheerfulness which 'makes' Spring !

Hope your week is off to a great start, I wish you most wonderful days to come,
with love and thankfulness

I love this post, Laura. The blue and yellow is so refreshing!

Marigene said...

♥ the blue, white and yellow, is definitely a sign of spring. My favorites for spring are aqua and lime...not much of either in nature, though.

Laurie said...

Your yellow is perfect. I haven't chosen a color for spring, yet. Hmmm, wonder what it will be?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

"The smiling colour" -- love it!

Yellow is such a happy color and looks great in your spaces with the blue! My happy color is lime green. Makes me smile every time!

Beverly said...

Yellow is the perfect spring color and I am a big fan of blue and yellow. Yours blue and white mixed with the yellow is my idea of perfection and the reference of making Lemonade is perfect for spring renewal. I came here from Poofing the Pillows and am so glad I did.

Laura, I love blue and white porcelain, and yellow (my favorite color) is the perfect accent for it. I think I'd feel right at home there!

An Oasis in the Desert said...

I adore your Spring kitchen,Laura! Blue and yellow are such a wonderful combo, and you certainly do have quite the collection of blue and white pieces....WOW!

Warm hugs,

Hi, hopped over from Staceys. Love the pops of yellow for spring. I usually decorate more with pastels until May when my yellows come out. Next week I am hosting a baby shower and her colors are navy and mustard so I pulled out my blue and whites today and a bit of mustard. Kind of a fun change.

Lisa said...

Yellow IS such a happy color and it plays so well with blue and white! But who doesn't play well with blue and white? ;-) said...

This makes me want to run out shopping for blue white and yellow! So bright and fresh for spring and summer!

Susan Freeman said...

I love blue and white ~ and blue and white and yellow is just perfection!

Big Texas Hugs,

I have always loved blue & yellow together too! My kitchen used to be yellow with blue touches, but now it's blue with white touches ;) Great kitchen towels. You have a lovely home Laura.
