When I was fifteen and moved into a new home with my family I asked if the walls in my room could be painted yellow. Much to my delight my parents said yes and I slept in a happy bubble of sunshine (along with Audrey Hepburn posters) every night until I moved out in my very early twenties and headed to Vancouver for a couple of years. When I returned I decided I was sick of the bright color and decided to paint my room a more "mature" pink color. I regretted it. Don't get me wrong, I love pink but just not on my walls. They looked like pepto-bismal had thrown up all over them. Yellow is such a happier color don't you think? If only my boyfriend would allow me to paint our walls in our home this lovely shade, I would be one happy girl! But just like Lindsay Lohan's career cannot be revived, it's never gonna happen so I'll focus on wearing the color instead and embracing this summer trend.
Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Richie and Karolina Kurkova do yellow right

Do you do yellow?
