Yellow… is having it’s moment

Yellow – the colour of sunshine, joy and happiness. Its warmth and boldness create the feel-good factor and has been embraced by the world of fashion as well as interiors this season.

More yellow

A colour once probably avoided both in terms of clothing and home design for being unflattering and dated, is now really having its moment. The fashion world has really taken this colour on board, in every shade imaginable, and can be seen all over the catwalks for SS17. It has also featured on the big screen – think, Emma Stone in La La Land and Emma Watson as the Beauty in Beauty and the Beast. Fashion Bloggers have taken it on in various styles and deeper shades of the colour are creeping into autumn collections too.

So why keep a colour so bright and fulfilling restricted to the wardrobe? Introducing yellow into your home could really make a difference this autumn. Whether it’s to brighten up a dull and dark room, create a bold feature or simply to add some brighter accessories, yellow is the go-to colour.

There are plenty of shades and tones to work with depending on the style and existing colour of your home. Deep yellow and shades of mustard work well with greys, wooden materials and warm metals such as bronze and dark golds, whereas the brighter, more citrus yellow sits well in contemporary schemes with pale tones of grey and white. Fully embrace yellow and opt for a painted feature wall – with ranges at Farrow & Ball and Pantone available to suit any mood or style.
