It’s such a versatile color, yet people tend to forget about it when decorating their homes’ interior. Choosing yellow for your bedroom can help wake you up in the morning and fill you with energy for the day. Creating a sunny yellow wall in your bedroom can add energy and brighten the room.
Even a darker colored yellow can add a sense of vibrancy and richness.
If you’re afraid that an entirely yellow accent wall would be too much, try creating a pattern. Since your bed tends to be the centerpiece or focal point in the room, making it yellow naturally draws the eye to it.
For a statement piece, you could choose a yellow velour or velvet upholstered bed. You could take a monochromatic approach and match your pillows, bedspread, and sheets in the same shade.
Yellow is the perfect accent color to brighten up any bedroom decor.
Used judiciously, you can brighten the space without fearing the room becoming too energetic for you to relax in. Then yellow accents could appear on the curtains, pillows, shade on your table lamp, wall art, and bedding. The boho style embraces vibrant and warm colors like yellow, orange, and red.
Skip the pastel shades and instead opt for darker and richer colors like honey, Tuscan sun, mustard, butterscotch, or canary. These colors have darker tones that will look beautiful next to natural materials like wood, rattan, and wicker.
Pair it with darker, richer woods and accent the combination with black hardware, wrought iron, and gold. The pairing of brighter yellow and darker grey creates a beautiful balance of color and energy.
A lighter shade of yellow is the perfect cheery gender-neutral color for kid’s rooms. Bold and vibrant yellow can also work for a young child, while darker hues of other colors can look too moody or mature.
For modern bedroom design, pair the yellow with neutrals like grey, brown, or khaki. For a youthful look, try pairing your yellow with colors like magenta, royal blue, or grass green.
If you want to keep your bedroom feeling light and bright, a lighter shade of yellow is the way to go. You don’t have to commit to a full pastel shade; anything on the lighter end of the spectrum will work. You could use your light yellow with a farmhouse, rustic, or French country design approach. These patterns add texture to the room and keep with the soft feel of the pale yellow.
A bright, bold yellow is a perfect color choice for a modern or minimalist bedroom. The bright yellow creates a strong contrast with the whites, blacks, and greys that are typical in modern or minimalist design.
If you practice the 60/30/10 rule, your yellow color would represent 10 percent of your design. You can pair your darker shades of yellow with a wide variety of colors, including red, orange, teal, blue, and brown.
Be careful not to use too many neutrals with your darker yellow shade as they can make your room look muddy, monochromatic, and bland. Your teen is growing up and wants a more mature room that reflects their current style and taste.
You could also create a soft feminine appeal with pale yellow and pastel floral fabrics. For an edgy design, you could pick a vibrant yellow and pair it with black and white. To create an authentic vintage look, choose yellow florals for the bedding, curtains, or wallpaper. Your accent chair should have a contrasting color, but place a pillow with a matching hue on it to pull it all together.
Modern wallpaper opens up a world of patterns and designs for your walls. If you prefer something edgy and want to create a statement accent wall, go for a large scale design, mural, or scene.
