I'm a firm believer in being inspired by the everyday. I think if you look hard enough, you can pretty much use anything in your everyday life (even the seemingly mundane) to inspire an interior design scheme.It could be a tree you pass on the way to work, a piece of jewellery you wear all the time, an old bowl you have at home, or in my case - random moments I see when I'm out running. And sometimes you're not sure why these moments appeal to you, or why they move you, but they do.

There's something so gloriously sunny about the colour yellow. From a design perspective, it's a warm colour that will definitely bring life to a cold space - and works incredibly well when teamed with neutrals like grey and white. And on a personal level - I just adore it. Let's look at 10 of my fave yellow homewares finds!

Brown Sofa - Oxford - from Oz DesignA friend of mine recently told me she was at a loss when it came to decorating around her brown leather sofa. She had tried adding turquoise accessories but admitted that it felt a little expected (I have to agree with her there). Here are a few ideas to ensure your brown couch - be it leather or upholstered - is used successfully in your space and plays well with your other pieces.

Yellow Decor and Homewares from FreedomI've been a big fan of a sunny yellow decor for quite some time (my business cards are splashed with this hue). Thank the decor gods above, then, that Spring is bringing it to all my fave stores and homewares mags, making it the undeniable colour of the moment. If you're plugged in and ready to play with yellow decor (it would be criminal not to), all you have to do is introduce it into your home in the right way so it doesn't offend your current furniture!
