I have a confession to make. It’s been more than four years since I first felt my heart flutter with excitement at the sight of this hue, and no matter what I do I just can’t quit you. Yellow, you are my colour drug! Whether you layer one of your gently weathered shades into an industrial scheme, provide a contrasting accent to a monochromatic room or bring a glossy pop of playful lemon to a space, you always give Mr. Bazaar the colour high he craves everyday. You pair beautifully with graphic patterns, ironically softening them despite your vivacious characteristics; work wonders when framed in a formal setting and then called upon as a reference point for layered accessories; and are versatile enough to hit the right notes whether used in country or coastal homes. You’re so darn good I can’t imagine life without you – truth be told, I wouldn’t even want to. Yellow, here’s to you, me and one bright addiction!

@Tim – Great choices! I love the monochrome and coastal ones but they are all fab!

I just love yellow. No colour is quite like it for cheering you up. One of my favourite combinations is with cornflower blue – glorious.

A wonderful “ode to yellow”, Will. I agree. Yellow is happiness and can do wonders on a grey day. I’m loving each and every example you picked – but I think my favourite is that kitchen cabinet with its yellow secret inside!

Every home should have a little yellow, even if just a vase of Daffs! Love yellow, such a happy, warm colour. Looks great as a main room colour or as a subtle addition. My favs above are industrial look and the striking monochrome – fab pictures.

These are awesome ideas. I really have never gravitated toward yellow when working on decorating our home – and I feel like these are all very attainable and relatable. Love (LOVE) the ‘coastal’ idea!

Hi Will,

I must admit yellow is on my radar for the past few months, especially the sweetcorn hue.

I’m currently decorating my kitchen using a mix of grey and yellow.

Thank you for even more inspirations!

You are responsible for converting us and probably the whole nation to yellow – absolutely love that Jielde lamp and the cuboard with the yellow interior. Love this whole story.
