Yellow is a color little-used in modern homes, it seems. It is a color that, after the 70’s gold & yellow heyday, people seem to struggle with in design. Too much yellow in too acidic a shade and a space can feel aged in a bad way, sort of weathered and sallow. The right amount of buttery, warm yellow can put an instant smile of your face.
Two rules for yellow: it has to be a shade that makes you feel happy and it can not be used everywhere.
Otherwise, feel free to splash out the happiness!
Here are some yellow-inspired decor ideas that are grounded, warm and light hearted… intuitive and fresh. Who can argue with that?!
When I want to make someone happy, I bring them yellow-infused flowers.
Golden and creamy, this is yellow and gilt greatness.
This room, while styled to the hilt, captures my imagination in its patterned and textured lemony hues!
One of my favorite kitchen colors: grounded, calm, relaxing, and perfect for the chef who loves to make food that makes other people feel fantastic!
Searching for some chairs for my living room, not only are these ideal, they are the right shade of happiness to be in the center of my space! An incidental chair is never incidental- it is an invitation to sit down and be comfortable and welcome and supported…all that yellow brings to our lives.
Happiness in design is less about extravagance and more about the ways you can fold luscious details, warmth and soul into a space. Smiling yellow is not a bad place to start…! xoxo Dana
