Color Trend: Yellow

23 Jan 2023
Color Trend: Yellow

Often associated with sunshine, the color yellow symbolizes optimism and joy. It is the most luminous color on the spectrum, making it the most attention-grabbing. When used in small amounts, it draws attention and universally invites energy.

Thinking about your home, which spaces strike you as dull or drab? This might be a neutral living room, a monochromatic bedroom, or other places you and your guests frequent. Anna Hill, brand director at paint and color experts Fenwick & Tilbrook explains, “yellow has the power to really add a pop of happiness into a space without needing to saturate every wall in it.” This means yellow can be used on a single wall, on a single piece of furniture, or a single decorative accent. Keep in mind, paler yellows can appear cheery and calming, while bolder yellows tend to be invigorating.

Committing to yellow furniture or other more permanent pieces may be a daunting task for many just dipping their toes into a brighter home. Choosing a yellow accent wall is a simpler way to begin trying yellow in your home.

We narrowed down two stunning designs. Our Stirling wallpaper features a subtle yellow plaid design that remains versatile enough to be used as a pop of color that does not overwhelm a space. Vista 8 is a wallpaper done by our in-house talent, featuring brushstrokes indicative of a warm, yellow horizon setting on a darker hillside.

The beginning of a new year typically calls for change or the desire for it. No matter how you choose to do this, it can feel rewarding and refreshing. Because quick changes to your personal life might not be as simple to swap out, your home is the perfect place to start.
