Versions of this bright yellow have been popping up on my radar for a while now and I’ve loved it from the word go! Really, is there anything more cheerful than a sunny, lemon yellow? I’m thrilled to see this color making it’s way into interior design and fashion. And, lucky for me, Pantone has selected this color to be part of their Fashion Color Trend Report for Spring 2018. So, all you bright yellow fans out there can rest assured that you’ll be seeing lots more of this friendly hue in the months to come. I’ve found some really inspiring design ideas using Pantone ‘Meadowlark’ that I can’t wait to show you. Let’s have a look.

This lemon yellow tone is perfect for creating a welcoming front entry door. I love how it pops against the white brick and trim.

How awesome are these light fixtures? A lantern style pendant looks good in lemon yellow.

The ‘Meadowlark’ and white combination is perfect for fashion looks.

I love the color palette in this photo. The bright yellow pop of color against the natural wood is gorgeous.

Speaking of gorgeous! I’m always a sucker for a white interior. But, throw in full height black curtains and bright yellow cafe chairs. Just, wow!

‘Meadowlark’ is a great color for a maxi dress. If you’re looking for an attention grabbing look. This color trend is the way to go!

Yummy! This yellow cake with blush pink icing is almost too pretty to eat. The touch of gold accent is a nice touch too.

Yellow and gray is a classic look that never goes out of style. Go with dark gray walls and accent with white trim and black. Then, add a few strategically placed ‘Meadowlark’ pieces to complete the look.

The ‘Meadowlark’ shirt and jean shorts combo is also a stunning look. Love it!

This is such a pretty color palette! The bright yellow against the blue background is just perfect.

It only takes tiny amounts of this color trend to really make a statement in a room. Look for ‘Meadowlark’ accent pieces to jazz up your space.

This is a super cute dress! It’s just the right mix of casual and dressy for my taste.

You know, I never would have thought to combine this bold color with a banana leaf print. But, it works!

One of my most favorite uses for bright yellow in interior design is as a chair upholstery. Just look at these fun dining chairs. So fun!

If you really want to keep it simple, use lemons to introduce this color trend into your home.

You know, I have always loved these metal stools. They look good in so many different colors but, ‘Meadowlark’ just might be my favorite.

This minimalist bedroom design is so simple and yet, so interesting. I love the roughly painted yellow wall paint. Would you call this an ombre?
