Your room design with 7 yellow accents

17 Jun, 2019

Yellow is by far the happiest and brightest color but it’s rarely used as the primary shade in a room design.

Many psycologists have proved that decorating a house in yellow can bring more happiness and optimism.

However, yellow is has never been a very popular choice in home decorating.

The reasons of this is that yellow is particularly hard to pair up with another shade. It tends to be too overwhelmingly bright, and get people tired very easily.

Yellow can work as a good accent to give a touch of creativity to your home design but it needs to be accompanied by a neutral color.

We have listed for you a few ways in which you could use yellow in your room design obtaining great and charming results.


1. A yellow armchair in a total black living room


Total black rooms can be very fascinating but also quite scary and way too dramatic.

A fun and interesting pop of color can be represented by a yellow armchair or lounge chair, to give some light to your room design.

2. A soft shade of yellow in a neutral room


A pastel yellow tone can allow more freedom and more liberty in the use of this color.

While a bright shade of yellow is normally not suggested to paint the entire walls of a room, a pastel shade can give a warm and cozy feeling into any room design.

A pastel yellow wall can be great when paired with total white furniture, such as a sofa or a bookcase.
