Don't Settle, Add Some Yellow

Don't Settle, Add Some YELLOW!

{Color of the Week}

The color yellow has the power to make a room feel more welcoming and comforting, however, in large amounts this cheerful color can instead create feelings of frustration and anger. To prevent these unwanted feelings, make yellow a secondary or accent color in your room. Deciding what shade of yellow to use is another big factor when adding yellow to a room. To give a room a more relaxed feel, use an earthy, yellow color. To make a room feel more sophisticated, use a deep yellow color, accented with gray and white shades. In rooms like kitchens and dining rooms, use a golden, honey yellow with lots of natural wood to create a hospitable room. From front doors, to kitchen cabinets, here are some ways to add yellow in your home with Painterati’s Color of the Week.
