I’ve had this photo of the yellow dress in my mind ever since I first saw it on The City Sage – are you as in love with yellow as I am? It certainly brightens dreary winter days…

Mood: sweetly sophisticated
Palette: mustard yellow, powdery blue, cream

    Ooh, I love it! Such a great color combo, light and fresh. I’m glad I’ve been locked into my color scheme for awhile, otherwise I’d constantly be changing things up ;)

    That Twig photo is definitely one of my all time favourites—and you’ve done it justice with this board! What a fresh and beautiful take on this color combo. It makes me long for spring!My favourite thing about the photo—other than the gorgeous colors—is wondering why the dress is hanging in that stunning bathroom. Is there a lovely lady somewhere, just waiting for her bath to be drawn so she can get ready for a romantic evening on the town? That’s when you know a photo is great: when it has the power to set your imagination running!Thanks for the link love Kathryn :)

    OK..too crazy. I was thinking about this exact color combo last night! I was watching Mad Men and there was a room with the blue wall and mustard yellow balloon. All I kept thinking about was – what a great color combo! So quite happy to see this today. Love it.

    I was wondering if anyone knows the designer of that yellow dress? Mustard is my favourite colour and I really think that could be my future wedding dress. The (beautiful) site the picture came from was unfortunately unhelpful.
