This season, shades of yellow from mimosa to gold are brightening up our homes. Check out our gallery above to see an easy way to update neutrals by using a highlight colour to lift them.
Check the mood Yellow will energise and cheer up a space, so make sure before you use it that you want this injection of energy in the space. It might not be right for a serious study or a calm bedroom scheme.
Get the base right Check your neutral room has a strong backdrop of cool contemporary grey to act as a contrast to the yellow. There should also be a good range of tones from charcoal through to white to ensure the golden highlights really stand out.
Colour as a focal point As yellow shades really ‘pop’ in a neutral scheme you can use them in lots of ways to energise a space. Choose vibrant patterns on furnishings for a modern Scandinavian look, add a striking gold-stripe wallpaper in a living room or paint a table in a bright yellow to take centre stage in a kitchen.
