There’s no denying it – mellow yellow is set to be big in 2019. It’s a cheerful, energetic colour that can be used in various shades and applications – so why not incorporate it into your home decor? It’s great for adding depth to neutrals, or on its own for maximum impact. So whether you embrace bold mustard yellow walls, or try out small accents for a colourful pop, this is the shade to use in your home this year.
1. Add Hero Furniture
Brighten up your living area with a hero couch in vibrant yellow or saffron. Warm textiles are a great way to introduce the colour and update your look without it being overwhelming.
Yellow is the colour of sunflowers, lemons, and sunshine, which makes it the perfect pigment for your home. It also stimulates mental and physical energy, which makes it ideal for the spaces where you want to be your most active and productive.
2. Be Dramatic
Sandy yellows glammed up with touches of gold can create a sophisticated scheme in the bedroom, especially when paired with neutrals. It’s dramatic, mature and luxurious.
3. Opt For Accessories
If you prefer a largely neutral scheme, you can add punch to your bedroom or lounge through your accessories, with throws, rugs, cushions, and lampshades being easy additions that will show you’re in the know when it comes to this on-trend colour.
