Both Gardener’s World and Springwatch were praising the beauty of daffodils on the television last night – and we’ve got some lovely swathes appearing in the local countryside. They really capture the vitality and optimism of spring. So, with the clocks going forward tonight, what other colour could we possibly have chosen for this week’s Home Tones than daffodil yellow?
It’s a fabulous highlight colour – feature walls & doors, chairs, lampshades, cushions and bed covers can all provide that flash of zingy, life-affirming colour without overdoing it. It lifts cream based neutrals & blond wood – and contrasts wonderfully against the much in vogue grey palette. In the case of daffodil yellow, it certainly is possible to have too much of a good thing. But, when used skilfully, it’s hard to beat for impact.
