Turn your space into a bright and cheerful haven

When it comes to sprucing up the home, a bold color can help turn things around—especially in a plain area or corner. At one point in time, we're sure that you've tried to experiment with unexpected palettes highlighting rainbow colors or even hints of red. However, if you're looking for something subtle and delightful, you can always depend on cheery yellow.

This bright hue can give any space just the right dose of sunshine without being too overwhelming. It works well with light and neutral colors, too. If you're ready to have fun, here are ideas to consider—aside from decorating your home with a few yellow ribbons:

Those who working on a minimalist or tropical theme can add a touch of color to the dining area by pairing a wooden table with yellow chairs. These seating pieces can help brighten up the space as well as give it a country feel. You can repaint old or existing wooden chairs or you may also buy a new set if you have the budget.

Visit Mandaue Foam to look for similar chairs.

Going for the quirky and playful look? Keep things simple by choosing to paint your front or bedroom door. Take inspiration from the photo above—the owner chose to have a two-toned door with a geometric pattern. Yellow blends well with white or if you're looking for something unique, a light gray hue can be an alternative partner, too.

We've already proven how an accent wall works. If you're revamping a reading nook or a work area, you may choose to paint the wall behind your shelves in butter yellow. Make sure you pair it with white accessories or must-haves in light wood. Aside from sprucing up a plain space, it also keeps your creative juices flowing—especially if you're feeling a bit tired and uninspired.

Yellow belongs in the kitchen like how a right-sized glove perfectly fits. Nothing beats preparing meals in an airy space and you can complete the look with yellow-painted cabinets. Turn your cooking corner into a country-inspired nook by pairing the yellow cabinets with white accessories and wooden must-haves. As an extra punch of color, you can have stools in a similar shade, too.

Are you a big fan of neutrals? Keep it from being too plain by having pillows and throws in varying shades of yellow. These fluffy picks can add life to an otherwise ordinary armchair or sofa. To achieve a cohesive look, consider having a wall art with yellow pieces. You can also bring in accessories and decor pieces coming from the same color family.
