Decorating with yellow: warm up cool rooms with a sunny shade

Decorating with yellow brings one of the most cheerful shades of the color spectrum into your home. Space enhancing, summery and warm, it can be used to enhance space or make a room feel cozy and intimate.  

‘Use paler shades, and yellow will reflect light in and around a room to make it feel bigger and brighter – the perfect choice for small spaces, narrow corridors or rooms with low ceilings where it can broaden, lengthen and add height. Use mustardy, darker yellows, and it will create a cocooning, intimate appeal,’ advises stylist and art director Sara Bird.
