Cheerful, energetic yellow adds instant warmth to any room, particularly soft, pale shades that are easy on the eyes. Muted yellows like buttercup, vanilla, saffron, or sand could help brighten a space with limited natural light or make a space with high ceilings feel cosier. (Choose a shade that leans towards orange, rather than green, to enhance this colour trick.)
There are many shades of yellow to choose from, ranging from light and subtle to bold and vibrant. Soft, muted yellows work well in bedrooms and living rooms, while brighter yellows can be used in kitchens and dining areas for a fun, energetic look. A yellow accent wall, yellow furniture, yellow decor, or yellow textiles can all be used to bring a touch of sunshine to your home.
