If you had asked in the beginning of the year what color to look out for in 2018, I would have immediately replied yellow. And I'm ok with that. Because yellow feels joyful and we could use a bit more of that in the world right now! It also happens to lend itself to one of my favorite decorating motifs. LEMONS.

Whether it's a pile of 'em on a table, or vintage Italian tole chandelier, or a big 'ol splash of lemon wallpaper, I love the look of this pattern in homes! For me, it's happiest and most fun when it's done a little vintage or kitchy - think Dolce & Gabbana or 50's style.

However you want to do it, here are a few ways to add a little lemon to your summer!
