Interior Obsessions – Sunny Yellow

By Modern Simplicity • Updated on 07/07/2021

As we turn the corner headed in fall, I start to think of ways to keep that summer feeling going strong just a little while longer. One of the easiest ways to keep that summer feeling in the home is through a liberal splash of bright sunny yellow.

Yellow is generally a love it or hate it color, and I will say that for years, it sat on the hate it side for me. But lately, I’ve been drawn to pops of yellow in discreet doses. Do I want a room with yellow walls and yellow furnishings? No, but set against whites and greys, yellow injects a playfulness that is quite refreshing. Try a couple yellow accessories, paint a cabinet, pick up some furniture, or just accent a wall. A little yellow goes a long way!

The chocolate brown adds a gorgeous contrast to the rusty red, orange and splashes of yellow.

RT @papernstitch: This yellow is not very mellow, but I really like it!

Wow, lovely colors. The interiors are so well put together with other accent colors. Very inspiring.

You can’t argue with yellow equaling happy! I love it!


I’ve read that “yellow is the new pink” and it has come into fashion so rapidly. Everywhere you look you’ll find yellow, mostly with grey (or even dar blue). Liked your selection and you are so true when you say that color can bring us into a mood, in this case a joyful one! Tks!


Sunny Yellow! #decoração #decoración #amarelo #amarillo
