Yellow is one of the most talked about colors of all. It can be associated with vitality and sunshine, or seen as a blaring nusciance. Depending on the way it is used in a designers line up, you either love it or hate it! I love it in the Mexican adobe house shown above.
Typically used in kitchens, yellow brings in the concept of a ” sunny breakfast nook”. Shown here in much lighter tones it is rather soothing. White is a natural partner for yellow. It blends nicely when used as an accent on trim, garden furniture and accessories like these white dishes.
This is a little overwhelming for a bathroom… a bit too much yellow for me! Painting the yellow wall on the right white would help and adding a colorful shower curtain may take it over the top as a “so ugly it’s beautiful” room.
The soft yellow walls in this French country kitchen bring the light in from outside. Additional subtle accents of deep golden yellow ceramic dishes and the white counter top are great compliments.
Yellow is happy, vibrant and joyful… it breathes life into all it surrounds!
