Decorating with…Yellow!

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

I’m making my way around the color wheel, continuing with the Color Series today with a look at one of the most fun colors: yellow! Yellow is such a happy shade to decorate with, wouldn’t you agree? When asked what color we think of as the most optimistic, many of us would quickly reply “yellow!”  

Yellow is the color of sunshine and energy, and with it comes creativity and feelings of positivity too. When used effectively, yellow is the perfect punctuation mark. Whether it’s a painted wall or accents you choose, yellow is that one hue that’s sure to bring an uplifting feeling of joy to your home. 

The stucco on our home is a pale shade of yellow, one we chose over twelve years ago and still love to this day. I play off the soft yellow hues with outdoor cushions and pillows in the courtyard. Yellow walls, both interior and exterior, soak up the sun and will always reflect warmth into a space.

When you’re looking at the walls, take your decorating a step beyond just paint and consider wall treatments such as tongue and groove planks or the beautiful motifs found in patterned wallpapers.
