Room Re-Do: Pops of Yellow

On this edition of Room Re-Do we’ve made an effort to recreate the super-chic living room at 5614 Mercedes Ave. in Dallas’ M-Streets neighborhood. Using hues of brown and pops of silver and yellow, this room provides a cozy and beautiful atmosphere that is so on-trend right now.


Some of our favorite items are the wall sconces and the fun yellow pillows, which both add interest and style to the space. Additionally, these pieces have a feminine-masuline juxtaposition that makes the room inviting for all audiences. See how you can get this look for yourself below…
