Having a lemonade stand as a child is almost an American rite of passage. It must be the American entrepreneurial spirit that’s distilled in us at an early age that makes us want to do it. Lemonade has such a strong connection with Summer that you almost can’t have one without the other. In fact, lemonade is the theme of Creating Home’s June calendar. Not only does it taste refreshing, but the color yellow is the perfect Summer color. It’s a nice complement to the bright blue skies and vivid green grass color that’s so colorful during the warm Summer months.
When my dad was in high school, he had a bright yellow ’67 Chevy that was his pride and joy. He started working at a really young age to save enough money to buy that car. To this day, he still loves that car and wishes he had it again. Whenever I see the color yellow, I think of my Dad and that car–driving around in the Summertime with the windows rolled down listening to the Beach Boys.
Yellow is such a happy, cheerful and fun color. It really does make people happy looking at it. If you’re looking to bring a little yellow into your home to brighten up the space, you can shop the lemon yellow-inspired products in the widget below.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
