Decorating With Yellow? Believe It Or Not, You Can Actually Pull It Off.

Decorating with yellow can easily bring sunshine into your home. According to Verywell Mind, “yellow is a bright color that is often described as cheery and warm. It can be intense, which is perhaps why it can often invoke such strong feelings“.

For a very long time, I played it safe decorating our home with beige and grey colors. I was scared to use bright hues. Probably, because I had no idea how to do so.

I didn’t know I had an obsession with the color yellow until I recently started using accessories with pops of yellow. Something about it kept pulling me in. It’s safe to say yellow is now my favorite color – 2 years in a row.

I get a feeling of warmth, positive energy and a sense of relaxation when decorating with yellow. For some of you, I know yellow would be too stimulating. I’d advise you to start small. Not only when decorating with yellow, but with any other bright color as well.

A simple way to start decorating with yellow would be to get flowers with yellow petals, place them in a vase and put them on display on your table. Or a bowl full of yellow fruit. This would help you get more comfortable with the idea of color in your home.
