How To Decorate With Yellow

Yellow is a good color choice for your kitchen, office, children’s bedroom or bathroom. Yellow is the color of the sun, and thus adds warmth to the room. This happy color will also add positive energy and will make a small room appear larger. If you are interested in learning more about decorating with the color yellow then follow these tips.

Step 1

Choose the rooms that you would like to decorate with the color yellow. Decide if yellow will become a whole house accent color or if yellow will be used primarily in a specific room or area.

Step 2

Pick out a complimentary color scheme. An easy way to achieve a color scheme is to go to your local paint store and select paint swatches. Paint swatches will show you all of the colors that work well with a particular shade of yellow. Then all you will need is an accent color. Blue, black, olive green and red are colors that work well with the color yellow.

Step 3

Determine how to use the color yellow by selecting your materials. Decide if you will paint your interior walls or add subdued yellow print wallpaper. You may also update your interior by decorating with the color yellow with accessories, to accent the room.


Update your décor with cheerful accessories; do a yellow color story in your kitchen by coordinating table linens with dishes. Add cheerful yellow print placemats with matching napkins then feature a glass bowl of lemons or a yellow floral centerpiece
