English Muse: If happiness had a color...

If happiness had a color...


...It would have to be yellow...

Reminds me of this song: Look at the stars. Look how they shine for you...

(PS: click photos for linkbacks).

UPDATE! This comment from the lovely Ms Reread made me laugh: "Love that colour, especially when it's light and creamy like lemon gelati ... but Chris Martin makes me want to stick a fork in my eye."

What is it about Chris Martin? Either love him or hate him?! I think he's a hot-tie!

I love the song Yellow, and also think that Chris Martin is funny, quirky and completely his own. I also promised myself that this year I would wear more yellow, but try not to look like a giant Mayer lemon. 't was one of my New Year's Resolutions. Have yet to accomplish that. But I do like yellow - husband and I saw some marvelous vintage cars today, and the best looking ones, I think one was Pierce Artrow, was yellow. God, that was a sunny and bright beauty! I am all for yellow, I just have to learn how to start loving it.

I want to drink a lot of bubbly and dance all night. And have sore feet sometime tomorrow afternoon, because dancing would go on untill then. How decadent. If that's how discussing yellow makes me feel, I LOVE yellow!

i dont like this color when young, maybe because it feels close to brown or soil or mud...but pretty like it these days...dont know why...bright ones remind me of the warmth of sunshine, creamy ones provoke me to bite...
PS: my friend bought me a beautiful light yellow umbrella, with large white delicate flowers on it~~ :)

I think I remember being a coldplay fan once but then I got bored.....

Chris is brill but a little full of himself these days, much like his wifie.....

but I do love some yellow and that does make me happy.

Haha, REread! Too funny.

I totally agree (with the yellow love) and love your choice of photos! I want to live in a house with a yellow door.

Lol! That sounds painful.

I absolutely love the pictures as well. It's interesting to see the juxtaposition between the energetic colour of yellow and the serenity of the scenes in the pictures. Just makes you feel ALIVE!! As for Mr. Martin, he's swell in my opinion. Has one of those unforgettable voices in my life. I won't deny it. I have a bit of a crush.

Yellow is my favourite colour! It's true about Chris Martin, personally I developed a dorky crush on him after I went to a concert, but a lot of my friends can't stand him...

I love yellow too, I want a yellow cotton dress for summer.

And Chris Martin... I liked him when he did 'Yellow' and Coldplays first album but after that...too mainstream and bland for me. And all that messages on a hand business, not my bag. But hey I should be proud of a British export I guess...

At the exact moment I read the words "look at the stars, look how they shine for you" that part of the song played on my stereo... I'll assume its some kind of a good omen.

This is why I can never get enough yellow. You can feel your soul sit up a little bit when you see it.

And, I like Coldplay, too, a lot (they remind me of my Pink Floyd obsession in youth) but I think they are mauve or grey.

FORK IN MY EYE! that makes me laugh. I think Chris Martin is aging nicely, thank you. He looks better now. I think he's a funny chap too which is always sexy.

How could you be miserable going through that door. What a lovely shade of yellow.

Yellow is amazing! The pictures are absolutely marvelous, especially the door! I really enjoyed this post, simple yet elegant. And the song is totally awesome, one of my most favs. As for Chris Martin, great voice and even more amazing display of musical artistry. :)

Yellow, the color of sunlight and butterscotch sunsets, daffodils in springtime and the blowing leaves in fall, of Sancerre crisp and clean in cristal glasses, of the butter that melts to smooth and enrichen any sauce. . .aw, yellow.

Bella, bella. But of course.

Though the GG blog's pale yellow background comprises (hugely) the "look" (what look? yes,I tried...:), still glad I kept it. Changed it one day, early on, & went back...I had yellow in mind & that was that. And while I'm not that much of a materialist, I do miss my great yellow Pappagallo slingback flats. I had them repaired over & over but after 15+ years (yes!), they had to be laid to rest. When I wore them, wherever I went in DC, people commented on them (in a nice way). Even men.

I admit I don't follow Coldplay all that much but I kinda like CM...Julie aka GG has big crush & imagines him as a lanky, off-balance gatto. Again: but of course.

I love the yellow doorway, and the combination of photos you put together really are nice and thought provoking. The fork in the eye comment cracked me up! I bought myself 3 orchids last week. Orchid no. 2 is yellow with pink petals in the center, very pretty. I could really dig a pale yellow 61 Guilletta. Nothing like a vintage sportscar with the top down to get you ready for summer!

Happy yellow! I bought a pair of shoes and a sweater this color a couple of weeks ago. Ever since I did a blog post about an old Maine farmhouse with yellow doors, I'm obsessed with them. Unfortunately, a yellow door wouldn't work on my current home. One day I will have my yellow door...

Love Coldplay, Chris is hot!
