It's time to let the sunshine in

It's sunny, full of life and gives your home a cheerful vibe—there isn't anything bad you can say about yellow. While there are times that it can look a little too loud and blinding, it can change the entire scheme of your decor when you find the right shade. If you're looking to add a dose of happy to your humble abode, here are some ideas you can try: 


If you're feeling brave, try injecting hints of yellow all throughout the room—you can try a statement chair, an area rug, a few pieces of decor or anything else that you think can give your space an unexpected boost. This trick helps make the room look more harmonious, too.

Wake up to a cooking corner that packs a punch by painting your countertops and cabinets yellow. When it comes to creating focal points, you either go big or go really easy—try a really bright shade of canary or a soft pale yellow to make this look work.

To keep your black and white scheme from falling flat, a statement couch in a sunny hue should do the trick. Make sure to keep this as the only colorful piece in the room to prevent steering attention away from it. 


In a mimimalist-inspired sleeping space, you can liven up the bed spread with a rich and warm mustard yellow comforter. Aside from adding color to the room, it creates the illusion that you've put a lot of thought in styling the space when all you really did is the bare minimum. 


Sometimes, our interior doors and window frames are neglected—we forget that we can use it to add character to our home, too. Choose a bright daffodil hue to brighten up your entryway.

RL Tip: If you're having doubts about the shade of yellow you can use, you can ask for advice from a design professional or seek tips from store attendants. Those assigned to the paint section are knowledgeable about colors and possible combinations.
