Walls and Floors
This seasons fashionable yellow hues are stepping right off the catwalk and into our homes providing eye-catching feature walls and colour pop flooring. For a subtle spring like ambiance in your interior then you can opt for lemon pastel tones or warm mustard hues for a traditional splash of colour that is not too overpowering. However If you like the idea of a full on sunshine interior then choose, vibrant and zesty yellows and bold geometric prints. These can be used on wallpaper, rugs and tiling for a true statement colour blast. When selecting your interior colour palettes; yellow tends to work best with simple white for a fresh appearance or blacks, silvers and charcoals for a more sophisticated, boutique style.
Accessories are the perfect way to add a splash of colour to your interior without surrendering to a complete decor overhaul. A sprinkling of Yellow cushions can transform a sofa, bed or window seat and add a much needed lift in the ambiance of a neutral of dark interior. Vases, candles, light fittings and mirrors will provide a fresh and inviting colour addition without overpowering the rest of your interior decor. Once again you can stick to plain accessories in your chosen yellow hue, or combine varying tones and patterns for a more contemporary abstract appearance.
Fabrics are the perfect way to incorporate the yellow trend into your interior. Bedding, curtains, rugs, blinds and throws give both colour and textural appeal adding to the overall aesthetics of a room. Patterned textiles can also be used to create matching wall art, such as framed fabrics or screen printed designs that will add a customised flair to your home interior.
Whilst yellow furniture is not a popular or regularly stocked collection you can choose to partner your yellow interior with white or black painted selections such as our French Moulin Noir and French Chateau range. Or why not take this opportunity to turn your hand to furniture restoration. You can transform an old or unused piece of furniture into a stunning yellow statement item with some fabulous yellow paint and some sumptuous new handles for a completely customised interior look.
You can also opt for bright and eye-catching seating options such as stools and dining chairs or update an old occasional chair using a lick of yellow paint and some vibrant yellow fabric to create a fun and functional ambiance that will leave you walking on sunshine!
