Color can be intimidating to add into your space. It’s hard to figure out which color to choose and what neutral colors to mix it with. I personally am a fan of adding pops of color as statement pieces instead of adding neutral colors to bold, colorful spaces. One color that seems to make a space feel fresh and clean is yellow. Yellow has been popping up everywhere in fashion. Concerning interior design, yellow can be tricky since most people don’t want their space to feel like a giant banana. Following the ensamble below, it’s important to mix the yellow with clean neutral colors like white and brown. Yellow also looks incredible paired with gold and brass. Here’s the look:
Color Inspiration: Skirt.
Daffodil is the perfect yellow for upholstered pieces, accessories and art. You can also use it for the backdrop in shelving.
Color Inspiration: Shirt.
For a nice modern, creamy white, you will love Arcade White. Use it on walls, floors, wood pieces or just about anything else.
Color Inspiration: Sunglasses.
Use Java in wooden furniture pieces.
Bonus: Krylon has a great gold spray paint that can be used on lighting and accesories.
Below is a modern eating area that shows how influential one pop of color can be. What are your thoughts on this color trend?
