american hustle yellow

After seeing Oscar nominated American Hustle, I couldn’t help but notice the use of yellow throughout the movie.   Over the top, retro and glitzy – the color was everywhere.



Classic Bentwood chairs were a focal point in Sydney’s apartment.

No relief from yellow in Sydney’s bedroom.

You could use bright yellow in a bedroom.
Maybe just in one place.

Yellow rubber gloves and an undo.
This pretty much sums up the character of Rosalyn.

Glitzy gold overdone in this scene.

Glitzy gold can be great.  Caution: use in moderation.

Gold CAN be tasteful in abundance.
