Fresh Ideas for Your Home

Yellow is a mellow choice for summer decorating – and throughout the year.

This versatile hue adds sunshine and brightness to a room.

Yellow is a positive and enthusiastic color. It awakens the spirit and evokes a positive attitude. That’s why using it in your interior decorating plan will brighten your home environment and add a cheerful touch.


In color psychology, yellow is correlated with joy, energy, happiness and warmth. And yellow comes in so many choices. Some variations are so light and airy they can actually become neutrals. Others are super-saturated, so they create a bold, warm feel.


Each yellow hue is more luscious and vibrant than the next, including:


  • Lemon yellow

  • Marigold

  • Canary

  • Mustard

  • Flax

  • Banana

  • Goldenrod

  • Butter yellow

  • Saffron


Think yellow tones for so many of your interior design elements:


  • Upholstery and drapery fabrics

  • Paint

  • Tile accents

  • Bedding and bath linens

  • Painted furniture

  • Wallpaper

  • Tableware

  • Even a bowl of tangy lemons or a vase of perky sunflowers


Yellow goes with almost any style of décor and plays well with a variety of colors. Think of pairing yellow with a black and white decorating plan, with brown and cream, or with a soft gray palette. Yellow also looks beautiful with most any shade of green, and with reds and blues too!


Want to make your rooms more energetic and joyful? Add yellow to your home environment!
