Using Colors to Create Mood in a Room: Yellow

If you’re looking to breathe a fresh look into a room, you can’t go wrong with the radiant feel of yellow. It’s a very emotional color that displays the positive side of those emotions. Yellow denotes friendliness, confidence, optimism, self-esteem and emotional fortitude.

Yellow is another one of those colors that can be overpowering on its own, but when combined with pastel blues, clean whites, sleek blacks, light greys and grounding greens, it looks stunning. The photo above shows how lovely pops of yellow work with black, white and grey shades. Light yellows like buttercup shades also add a bright tone to any room without being too overpowering. Darker yellows add a bright feel, yet the look is still grounded.

A good way to introduce these uplifting tones of yellow is to look at your upholstery. If you’ve been wanting to add some sunny rays to your home, below are some ideas from the new sale items, or you can find all yellow selections here.
