Bring in the sunshine with Yellow

The colour of sunshine, lemons and sunflowers, yellow always has the ability to bring warmth and and a sense of high-spiritedness into any room. From yellow wall treatments to upholstered furniture, yellow works equally well in both rustic, country-style and contemporary decor settings. We share some yellow inspiration...

Being a primary colour, yellow mixes well with other primary colours like red and blue.


Mustard, a more muted shade of yellow, blends well with lighter shades of brown, grey and violet.


An easy way to introduce yellow would be through soft furnishings like upholstery, carpets or cushions. Change them out when you get tired of them!
