Decorating With Color: Yellow

PicMonkey Collage

Welcome back to the decorating with color series! Today it’s all about Yellow. Yellow can
be bright and sunny to soft and buttery. It’s a great way to brighten up a space whether
you paint an entire wall or just bring in some yellow accessories into your space.
Yellow is the easiest color for the human eye to see, people who are blind to color
can usually see yellow. Yellow stimulates your memory, your nervous system, your mental
process, & it also encourages communication. Ever wonder why notepads are yellow?
That’s why folks! It’s stimulating and helps your remember your little notes to yourself.
I’ve gathered some inspiration to bring yellow into your spaces from bold
to subtle, from big to little, & from bright to dull. Let’s get motivated to bring
the sunshine in….

Adding a gorgeous piece of yellow furniture to any room will
add that perfect pop of yellow. I’m loving this shabby yellow
cabinet used as a linen closet in a bathroom, and this stunning
dresser used here as a buffet.

Adding some bold yellow drapes can add that perfect pop of yellow you are looking
for. I’m loving the yellow, chair, door knob, nightstand, and drapes against
all of the neutrals & whites. & I love that they are not all the same shade of yellow,
but they all work together great with out clashing.

Feeling like you want to make a statement with your couch? A yellow
couch would be a huge statement piece. You could go with a vintage velvet
couch, a new couch, or re-upolster a sofa with some yummy yellow fabric.

Yellow nurseries are pretty common, but these nurseries took yellow to the next
level. Bold yellow stripes, yellow ceilings, & yellow paired with red, all of these
decisions make these nurseries stunning.

Bringing yellow into the bedroom in bold or subtle ways can be done
with rugs, pillows, paint, & accessories. You can go with neutrals
to pair with your yellow or go with an eclectic mix of colors.
