Add Instant Sunshine To Any Room

You create your own decoration. You choose your color, you choose your mood. … If you are depressed, you put some bright yellow and suddenly you are happy.

Philippe Starck

It’s winter time and sunshine can be hard to come by these days.  My favorite season is summer. I like to think it’s because I was born in September so I’m naturally predisposed to loving this season. I moved recently and live in a mid-century modern home built in 1961 in the San Fernando Valley in California. I have always loved this type of architecture and would stay in vacation rentals in Palm Springs just to surround myself with something different than my previous 1950s built home.

Changing your surroundings can really change your perspective and mood.  That’s why adding a fun yellow chair or two can add that instant sunshine to your room. I chose these yellow mid-century modern chairs for my dining room and added two to my table. I actually purchased a total of 6 chairs in 3 different color pairs. What will you choose to add some sunshine?
