Hi guys, so it’s offically the first day of Spring today! I know that’s hard to believe after all the snow we have just had!! But what better way to embrace the beginning of Spring than by adding a burst of vibrant yellow interiors to your home, so at least it can be sunny inside even if it is still snowing outside!

Yellow, as a colour, is defined as an emotional colour and in terms of psychology it symbolises such things as warmth, happiness, optimism, energy and confidence and it known to have a positive uplifting effect on your mood, and for these reasons alone why wouldn’t you want a splash of yellow in your life?!

It’s also a great welcoming colour, making it an ideal paint colour for your hallway or kitchen. If painting your walls yellow seems a bit daunting to you fear not, statement furniture pieces in yellow are a great and easy way to introduce yellow into your interiors without having to re-paint your whole room!

Now some of you might be thinking yellow interiors is too bold a colour but there are various shades of yellow so you are bound to find a tone to suit your space. From the bright sunshine yellows, to the sophisticated mustard hues, to rich golden tones, to pretty soft pastels, to citrusy lemon shades, there is a yellow for every room!
