With a warm glow, yellow bedrooms can exude chic style when the focus colour is yellow. To replicate warm summer days chose a shade which isn’t too bright or too garish – the colour of sunflowers would be ideal.
This shade of yellow is perfect for teaming with browns, golds and greys to give a master bedroom a refined and sophisticated look. If you paint the walls this shade of yellow they will make the room look and feel warm and cosy, and while during the summer the last thing you want is to feel warm, choosing this shade means you can dress it up or down according to the seasons. For example, when the nights are hot and sultry all the bedding you’ll need is a lightweight duvet and cotton blend duvet sets. In autumn and winter you can pile of the layers, up the tog rating of your duvet and use bed throws to keep the stylish look and also keep you warm.
Yellow is also a friendly colour making it the ideal choice for guest rooms. Add floral patterns inspired by the seasons and you’ll have a yellow bedroom which will last throughout the year.
If you’re not in favour of sunflower yellow then pep things up by choosing a more vibrant shade. For teens rooms neon yellows are on-trend and look fabulous when coordinated with pewter grey or black.
For those who like to stay within their comfort zones when it comes to choosing colours, yellow can be used as the accent against white or cream to create dreamy bedrooms which are fresh and inviting. Use the yellow accent for bedding, wall art or even large rugs. If you are using yellow as the accent colour don’t go too ‘mad’ – splashes of yellow will inject a lively touch, however, use too much and the room may start to feel and look overwhelmed.
To create a warm glow throughout the year yellow window blinds and/or cheap curtains will allow the natural light to emphasise the yellow as it filters through the fabric. If you don’t want any light at all then blackout curtains are a real asset to bedrooms. Using a blackout lining means that you can still choose the colour and pattern of curtains you like, you just won’t have to worry about the daylight coming through and if your window faces East you won’t be woken by the early morning sunlight.
