Flashback Friday: Mellow Yellow

I've been loving yellow for a while now. Perhaps it is a sign of my sunnier disposition--sunnier than when my favorite color was black, to be sure. For this Flashback Friday, I'm posting citrus-infused interiors from the days when decorators never shied away from bright colors. Yes, the 1960s and 1970s were the glory days for bold colors, but I see the influences poking through our more subdued aughts.

Here's a 1970s bathroom that doesn't shy away from stapling faux fruit to the ceiling for (excellent) effect:

The effect reminds me of the poolside lemonade stand at The Parker Palm Springs.

This is just a whole mess o' yellow, but it works:

Echos in the work of Jonathan Adler, no?:
