Hi there! Hope you’re having a great day! So I’m working my way around the color wheel over on About.com and most recently, I cover how to decorate with yellow, which happens to be one of my favorite colors! Do you know what colors pair best with yellow for the mood you want? Do you know which shades work well in bedrooms? How about kitchens? Well, I’ve got you covered with this guide to yellow home decor.
Yellow is a mood-lifter. It’s definitely the cheeriest color on the color wheel, and can brighten a room in the smallest of doses. Certain shades, though, can also be warm and cozy. While others–like saffron–have a more exotic feel. Even though I do love yellow, it’s not one of the main colors in our house. I have pops of it here and there, instead, for just a jolt of energy. For instance, I love yellow on our front door, where it really stands out against the black and looks great with our gray siding.
I also use yellow quite a bit in the springtime. Lemon and canary yellow both look so fresh.
And sometimes I just feel like swapping out pillows or adding yellow here and there for a mood boost. Citron is especially good for that.
