Yellow is the colour of happiness. Yellow is Elle Decoration’s this month’s hot colour. Yellow it seems is having a moment and has also been brightening up interiors of late.
Ochre prize a subtle glamour and their fine Italian Saddle leather is hand dyed in unique shades with evocative names. The newish Sable leather chair is now available in a beautiful ripe Quince. This intense yellow is a chic accent colour that partners well with moody greys and inky blues.
Dealer-decorator-maker Max Rollitt’s bespoke Katzic is upholstered in yellow hand-dyed antique hemp. Here is a classically inspired craftsman and sought-after interior designer whose aim is to create joyful homes. His Katzic sofa is pure joy and looks thoroughly modern in yellow but it is actually based on a sofa dated 1790 that Max bought in a Manor House in Lancashire. Architectural designer Ben Pentreath has one in this primrose-yellow antique linen in the Drawing Room in his Dorset Parsonage, which also features on the front cover of his book ‘English Decoration.’ Max has also painted a Hampshire kitchen in a bright intense yellow.
A selection of Margo's latest hand-woven lampas fabrics will be on display as part of the Made in Clerkenwell Open Studios, which start this week. Margo will also be providing a demonstration of hand weaving on Sunday 10th May as part of a programme of interactive talks and demonstrations that promote the first year of London Craft Week designed to promote highly skilled craftsmanship.
