Bright and cheerful ambience in a room can be created from colour coordination. One of the examples is by presenting a very contrasting colour like yellow in the room. Shocking yellow makes the room looks lively and reflect positive energy to whoever stays in it. A yellow dominated room will be even more suitable if you are a fan of this vivid colour.

However, homeowners are often hesitant to apply yellow colour. They worry that their home will appear tacky and ostentatious. Yet, with the right arrangement, the application of yellow colour at your home can be attractive. You can set yellow either as the main colour of the room or merely as an accent in the room. The followings are six inspirations of how to use yellow in your room arrangement.

Matching Yellow

The first way is by applying several types of yellow simultaneously. The combination of these different colour tones will create a dynamic ambience in the room. With yellow as the main colour theme, you can apply a darker shade of yellow to a wide area like the walls, then apply a lighter shade of yellow to the decorations. This arrangement of colours can also be done vice versa, in accordance to your preference.

Yellow Sofa

If you don’t want the room to be entirely in yellow, pick only one part of it, for example yellow for the sofa that becomes the main furniture piece. Yellow sofa will be the focal point, especially if accompanied by other softer colours at the other parts of the room. Besides sofa, other furniture pieces can also be painted yellow, such as the bed’s headboard, the table, or the dining chair.

A Touch of Artwork

Who says that the application of colour is limited to wall paint? Applying colour can also be carried out through paintings or artworks in the room. For example, like this room that looks livelier through the addition of a painting in yellow theme. Don’t forget to pick a size of an artwork that is suitable with the size of the wall in the room.

As Accent

An interplay with texture can also be opted for when you want to add a touch of yellow in the room. The natural texture and colour of exposed brick will go well with the bright yellow colour. The natural colour can also serve as a balance so that the touch of yellow won’t seem too flashy.

This is one of the most practical ways to give a cheerful impression through yellow without seeming too monotonous. You can paint only one part of the wall in yellow. The painted area can be the area where you put the sofa, or the one that is suited to the width of the shelves like in this room. Interesting, isn’t it?
