Create A Cheerful Bedroom With Yellow
If you want to create a bedroom that’s cheerful and relaxing, try adding shades of yellow to your room. It’s a color that’s found everywhere in nature, and it’s showing up as a popular design trend in homes across the country. From the bold shades seen in sunflowers and sunsets to the pale shades seen in delicate spring flowers, yellow is a color that makes you happy.
How Much Is Too Much?
Since yellow is a strong color that evokes visual stimulation in a room, you need to determine just how much yellow you can live with. Decorate with doses and shades that are comfortable for your lifestyle. Depending on the amount of red or blue in the color, yellow can take on very different shades. Yellows with red undertones are warm and welcoming, so they’re comfortable in large doses, especially in north-facing rooms that feel dark. Yellows with blue undertones have a cooler, calming effect, while pale, buttery yellows function as neutrals that work well just about anywhere. Here are some tips to help you decorate your bedroom with the right shades of yellow.
Your color choices in yellow paint are endless, from vibrant shades of sunny yellows to subtle shades of cream. To create a bedroom that’s tranquil and relaxing, choose a lighter shade of yellow with cool blue undertones. For visual interest, paint an accent wall behind the bed in a deeper shade that compliments the other walls. Create a fun, youthful bedroom for your teenager or small kids with warmer, brighter shades of yellow or create a unique accent wall with horizontal or vertical stripes
your kids will love.
If your style is traditional or transitional, you can bring soft yellow tones into your bedroom with blonde woods like beech, maple, oak and bamboo. Warm wood tones will add soft, subtle touches of yellow that create a cozy, comfortable room. If your bedroom is contemporary or more eclectic, you can get away with stronger doses of yellow. Repaint an old chest in sunflower yellow or a platform bed in a deep, bold shade of yellow lacquer for a dramatic flair.
If yellow is too strong for you in large doses, use it in accents like bedding and draperies. You can find king comforter sets, draperies and throw pillow in various shades of yellow. If you want traditional elegance, choose bedding and draperies in softer shades and subtle patterns and textures. If you want to make a strong design statement, find bedding and draperies in bold shades of yellow with large, interesting floral or geometric patterns that compliment the rest of the room.
