Inspired by Daffodils

One lone daffodil to be precise. I don't know the variety but the combination of pale sunshine yellow and hot orange makes me want to sing* and decorate with:

A bright orange Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair

Soft saffron Elin bed linens by Area from The Conran Shop 

Finnish designer Sanna Annukka's folklore inspired Kanteleen fabric from Marimekko

Or maybe I should make a couple of DIY art panels with a quart of Benjamin Moore Citrus Orange and another of Lemon Meringue?
What would I be singing? Well, certainly this number from the Belgian days

That chair-- I love it! I went straight to google to find one-- perhaps for, uh, mother's day? birthday? Thanks for the post!

Isn't it amazing how one lone daffodil can inspire you... there are so many inspirations out there if we just take time to notice!

Orange is my favorite color and I especially love it this time of year. That is one of my favorite chairs of all time, too.

Orange is a healing color, I am glad it is coming. The Eggr Chair is one of my favorites, I have never seen it in orange...I like!
