Spring is here, well and truly…
We like happy and jolly rooms and colour is a big part of that. So yellow..
Yellow gives a room a feeling of warmth and happiness, as it reminds us of sunshine.
A word of warning though, use yellow very sparingly in a room that gets drenched in sunshine. Yellow overload is a headache waiting to happen.
Yellow can range from bright to very soft and subtle, and blends nicely with most other colors. It can add a touch of warmth and brightness to a predominately cool-toned room (think blues, purples, greens), it also pairs well with other warm hues (orange and red) for a fiery appearance, and also works with natural materials like wood and stone.
I usually recommend shades of yellow especially in cooler rooms that tend to be overcast frequently. A north facing kitchen..bingo! The colour fools the eye slightly into thinking it is sunny, and thereby makes the room feel more inviting on cloudy days.
Very bright yellow works particularly well as an accent colour, as opposed to a wall paint color. If you want to paint, a soft pastel yellow is usually best. Accents make good additions to curtains, rails and details. When was the last time you bought yellow stripey curtains or a yellow shelf? Excactly. It is eyecatching, cheery and yellow does not react badly to most other colours.
