Mad About Hue | Yellow, Green + Turquoise

What sounds like a completely awful color palette is really quite nice, don't you think?  I'm working on a project right now that has required me to think outside my sometimes boring color box.  My client's one request?  Design a room around Anthropologie's buttery yellow Atelier Chesterfield sofa.  Yup.  A big, expensive, yellow sofa. 

My first instinct?  Go neutral. You know, grey, black, white, yellow (à la Jenna Lyons).  But the more I thought about it the more I realized that yellow compliments many other colors quite nicely.  Above are four rooms that I keep referring back to for color inspiration.  Which on is your favorite?

  1. I love yellow and olive green together (indeed its in both my living room and my bedroom!) in combo with all the neutrals (grey/black/white) but a dash of red always seems to go great with the combination as well.

    I never thought of using turquoise with these colours though! What fabulous images and inspiration - my favourite is the last image.
