Yellow Making a Comeback with a Difference

In my Blog this week I thought I would discuss a colour that historically hasn’t been one of my favourites at all. Yellow is making a comeback in popularity and has been popping up all over the place recently.

How can we use Yellow in our interiors today?

Yellow is carefree and confident. The color psychology of Yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun. I think the improved economy and the sense of positive expectation that is so prevalent at the moment, has made more people feel confident and comfortable about using a positive colour like Yellow. It is expressing how we feel, even if sub-consciously.

What is the best way for you to use Yellow?

I recommend using Yellow for a pop of colour, an accent, rather than the predominant colour in your scheme. The advantage of this is that it is easy to change when you have tired of it and secondly, it is not overwhelming.

I love the contrast in this bathroom of the dark walls and drapery, and the vibrant yellow, it makes a real statement.

Quirky, colourful accessories like this Yellow bird, are generally inexpensive and you can quickly add interest and a spot of colour to a room.

I love these Yellow front doors. They are very eye-catching and create a fantastic warm welcome for visitors.

This Yellow head and antlers is another quirky injection of colour and playfulness. By adding a whimsical feature to your room, you are providing a point of interest, a talking point and it helps to make your room unique to you and reflective of your personality.

This room is so elegant and colourful. The combination of the blue, Yellow and gold is fantastic. This room stimulates the eye, but not in an overwhelming way, as it is so well put together.

Design Tip

Look out for interesting accessories in bright colours to add personality to your living spaces, they don’t need to be expensive and you can change them out occasionally or seasonally.

I would love you to see your comments or thoughts on using Yellow and also how you use pops of colour to enhance your spaces.
