Hello Yellow: Effective Ways To Brighten Your Home's Interior With Shades Of Yellow

Posted on

If you are looking for the perfect paint color to brighten up any room of your home, yellow will not let you down. From sunny shades of lemon yellow to subtle and soothing pastels, yellow is cheerful, warm, and inviting. Choosing yellow for your next interior painting project will leave you wondering why you did not choose yellow sooner.

Bright shades of yellow

You can banish boredom in your home by painting one or more walls a bright shade of yellow. Lemon yellow is a great choice for brightening up a kitchen or dining room. For a country-style kitchen or dining room, paint walls yellow and accent with red cabinets and yellow checked curtains for a refreshing look.

Bold shades of yellow are also a natural choice for a child's playroom. Paint walls a bold canary yellow and paint the trim green, blue, or red. If you prefer neutral walls, yellow can be used to paint a desk, table, or bookshelves in a playroom to add a refreshing pop of color.

Rich shades of yellow

In traditional or colonial-style homes, mustard yellow is a must-have color. Rich and powerful, deep shades of yellow generate feelings of warmth in a room. Pair mustard yellow with accent pieces in hunter green or rustic shades of red or burgundy to make a dramatic decorating statement.

Rich yellows also complement navy blue and will work well to add a touch of color to a nautical-themed room. Mustard yellow walls will create a pleasing backdrop for wood furniture, such as mahogany or walnut, when used in a living room. 

Subtle shades of yellow

Mellow shades of yellow are the most versatile for interior painting. Pastel shades of yellow add warmth to a room and are not overpowering, which makes them as much at home in a bedroom as a living room. Light yellow can also be used to dress up popular neutral shades that are common today in interior design.

For instance, pastel yellow is a pleasing complement to shades of gray. It also plays perfectly with beige and can tone down the harshness of bright white. It will play equally well with rich neutrals, such as brown or taupe.

From the kitchen to the bedroom, yellow will be a welcome change in the interior of your home. Not only is yellow cheerful on its own, but it also complements other colors well. Painting your interior walls yellow can transform a boring interior into one that is cheerful and welcoming. Reach out to an interior painting company to get started.
