6 perfect shades of yellow

Add a dash of yellow, and you’ll get instant sunshine. Here are six perfect shades of yellow for different interior needs.

Yellow colour to enliven your home

A room singing with yellow is almost guaranteed to make you feel cheerful and warm. It’s a shade that brings positivity to a space and makes anyone entering the room feel invited. 

Yellow reminds us of the season changes. It can be the colour of the first primroses or buttercups of the early summer, the hue of drying hay and the harvest, or the deep yellow in the first autumn leaves. 

From soft and pale sherbet to zingy citrus and to golden yolk, yellow is experiencing a renaissance in the interior. It’s usable on large wall surfaces and on details as well. Yellow is a colour that some people are intimidated to use, but you shouldn’t. After all, yellow will definitely lift a space and create warmth and sunshine.
