Le Tour de France is coming to England, and I for one am very excited! Flashes of yellow are appearing in shops, restaurants, cafes and businesses across the Yorkshire countryside and it got me thinking about just how impactful yellow can be. Whether in fabrics, patterns, soft furnishings or flowers there are lots of ways to use yellow at home.
1. Fabulous florals
These tall stemmed blooms were fresh from Covent Garden flower market when they were shot against new Farrow & Ball colour Purbeck Stone. They really are fabulous, commanding so much attention within the room.
2. Incorporate yellow into your art
Whether it’s by painting the frame, or picking out a hint of yellow in a painting you already have, you can create a real sense of flow in a room by linking a colour used in art with the rug, cushions or furniture in the room.
3. Update your bedroom with yellow bed linen
Geometric patterns are everywhere at the moment. Try a yellow geometric bed linen to add on-trend colour to your master bedroom.
4. Paint a chair
Yellow is an amazing accent colour, particularly against a grey background. Yellow is inherently warming so works especially well against cool, blue-based greys with an urban edge.
5. Yearlong summer with a yellow rug
Striking yellow rugs will add summer colour to your room all year round, and who doesn’t want that!
6. Burst of Back Door Colour
Your front door is on show 24/7, whereas your back door is just for family and friends. Have a little fun and add a block of colour to your outside space by painting the back door a bright colour!
