With a new season upon us, naturally you may be thinking about ways to revitalize your home and incorporate the fresh colors of Spring into your décor. For our second Color Series post, we wanted to highlight how to decorate with the color yellow. We love using yellow in our clients’ homes because it evokes feelings of happiness, energy, optimism, and warmth. Sure, yellow can be a bold choice in some applications, but when used tastefully throughout the home, it really brings that “wow” factor.
SO, HOW DO YOU USE YELLOW IN YOUR HOME?
We often use this happy color in smaller spaces, like in a powder room or butler’s pantry, and through accessories such as throw pillows or vases for fresh-picked flowers. Whether you prefer an approachable pale yellow or a bright sunshine yellow, the wide spectrum of this cheery hue means here’s a shade for everyone.
So, if your home is in need of a little pick-me-up, and you’re itching for some (online) retail therapy, keep reading to see the home décor items that the Blakely team chose to inspire you to live vibrantly every day. (Bonus: Many of these items are currently on sale!)
