Let there be sun! And what comes with it – vibrant colours that instantly bring a whiff of fresh energy to your home. Do not hesitate to change your living room with a splash of yellow at its best – in lemon tones. You don’t know how to go about it yet? Read this Home Inspiration Ideas advice on how to decorate your living room and become an expert. See below how to use yellow accents in home decor and how to add yellow in your living room.
At a glance such bold colour as yellow may seem too demanding to pair it with anything else than grey or other neutral colors. On the contrary – it goes unexpectably well with many tones, which allows you to decorate your living room in a more sophisticated, yet unseen and surprising style. It can help you brighten up your living room, by emphasizing both historic and modern elements in both captivating and stylish way.
Let’s start our journey with a classic design piece and neutrals. Wooden panneled wall creates a background, some sort of canvas for the design that it contrasts – a statement piece in a bold color, made from a synthetic material. Some accessories from the period, a cardboard lamp, a geometric pattern on the cushion – and there you’ve got it.
Now, let’s get a little bit more more brave with using the colour, there is no point in sticking only to the familiar when there are so many possibilities awaiting. How about proving to you that yellow painted walls are not only suitable for one style. Here are two opposite style examples – a very traditional interior with wooden furniture (but also some brave blue finishes) and a historic apartment with acid yellow walls and some steel-framed furniture (kept only in black and white).
Have you ever considered buying a yellow sofa? After seeing those wonderful pieces of furniture you surely would: This one is a traditional quilted chesterfield sofa, but yet its deep lime hue makes it the perfect match for the maroon shade on the walls.
You wouldn’t have thought that yellow and baby pink are what makes a good design? Just look at this rich in different textures and patterns living room design.
Or maybe you could use some stylish armchairs? This one is called NAMIB (BRABBU’s piece), and as you can see for yourselves – looks great in a couple of color versions put together with some neutral background.
You could also set for some exciting detail: Painting only the windowframe, adding a bit of red tones? Ingenious!
Usually you would be hiding your plumbing, but…Why not make something exciting out of it? And what about painting the door all canary yellow? Those two examples of pairing it with teal have instantly made it to my ‘favourite color palettes’ list.

Optimism that comes with it will turn out irreplaceable both during the summer and all those winter months that are yet to come… add yellow to your living room, go with a yellow color scheme and enjoy your living room!
