Dreaming of Summer: 15 Yellow Bedroom Ideas to Brighten Your Mood

Having a yellow bedroom especially at this time of the year when most of us rarely see the sun is something that we will surely appreciate. You need not paint the walls in bright yellow and accessorize in different shades of yellow. Many designers out there have plentuy of ideas on how to decorate with yellow. Since yellow is a very energetic color, just hanging a yellow art object on your wall or having one yellow piece of furniture is already like adding a small sun to your bedroom. However, yellow can be a pretty demanding color.  So you need some expert advice on how to mix and match the yellow color into your overall bedroom design.  Below are some tips as well as examples in photos to inspire you in designing your very own yellow bedroom.

01-When using a bold color like yellow, try using one color (in this case yellow) for walls, upholstery, curtains, etc. but with varied tones and textures. To give it some relief, use either light or dark wood pieces or use accents in another color in pillows, lamps, or other accessories.

02-Yellow is a strong shade, so it stands up well to other shades. Put it with neutrals and it will stand out and add a splash of warmth – put it with other bolds and the room will become incredibly lively. To dampen the boldness of the scheme, keep walls neutral.

06-Let a bold geometric print be the starting point for a room’s entire color scheme. This lemon yellow-and-brown striped fabric is the focus of the entire room, but by pairing it with all-white bedding, it never overwhelms the space.

07-This room is painted with almost yellow gold but the bed in white is the focal point of the room. Built-in shelves, cushions and pillows soften the room’s architectural details and provide punches of color.

08-Beaded board, black-and-white accents, and a dash of yellow paint warm up this bedroom. Antique plates hang from the windows by grosgrain ribbon and provide a decorative touch.

09- Use yellow accents such as linens, pillow, curtains against dark walls and furniture.

10-If your room is lacking in natural light, choose a lighter shade of yellow (rather than one that ebbs towards mustard). The lighter the shade, the more subtle the effect; if you want something with more impact, choose a very bold shade.
