Color Decorating Tips

Yellow The Sunshine of Home Decor


Yellow is perceived as the color of sunshine in home decor.  It is associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy,  It is the brightest and lightest of all colors, and this brilliance is its most noticeable characteristic, which accounts for the way it is used in home decorating, especially in farmhouse country decor.

If you want an uplifting, cheerful happy home give yellow a go!

Whether its bright as the sun or quiet as a fallen autumn leaf, this color scheme always brings a smile and sunshine to the life of the home owner using it.

Some love yellow, some hate it and then there are those who want to decorate with it but not sure how to go about it.  It is said that home decorating with yellow isn’t the easiest color to work with but here are some tips I’ve compiled to make that easier.


  • Accessorize a softer yellow with a creamy off white color on mouldings and trims to keep the mood calm and soothingly restful
  • Great color pairings with yellow are bright white, off white, light grey, stone or sand shades
  • Use yellow in a room flooded with natural light, this gives the room a soft cozy feel however, not all colors can warm up a room that doesn’t get a ton of natural like yellows can so you can get away with it virtually in any room.
  • Introduce a pop of two tone blue shades, bold prints and patterns on cushions and throws

Don’t let yellow’s summery inspiration kid you because, yellow is beautiful due to it being “seasonless” and it sets the tone for a warm, cozy room.

Happy Decorating and don’t forget to add some self expressions to your walls!
