Sometime recently I decided that what I really wanted was a yellow rug in the bedroom. Last year I thought a light blue, but our bedroom has changed quite a bit in that time - new curtains, new bedding, and the removal of one vinyl barf-green chair.
Really, what inspired this was seeing this beautiful Madeline Weinrib rug, called Goldenrod Brooke.
The bedroom currently lacks color. It has a lot of wood furniture, and wood floors, and looks pretty brown. Once someone remarked (admittedly before the new curtains and chair-removal) that the room looked like the 70s. Egads.
Not really sure yellow is anti-70s, but H. and I think it could give it a much-needed pop of color. An explosion of color, even. In my mind I want a French's Yellow Mustard kind of yellow.
Last week I ordered a sample from Flor of "Feelin' Groovy".
It looks pretty popped-up yellow, but H. and I can't quite decide if it is as yellow as we wanted. Here are some test shots:

I don't think it's quite there yet. What do you think?
I think the other option is this Toy Poodle Yellow, but I'm slightly worried it might just be the same kind of yellow:
