We could all do with a little sunshine in our lives right now and no colour can brighten up a day quite like yellow. From buttercup and ochre, through to lemon, marigold and amber, these joyful shades are psychologically linked to happiness and creativity.

What’s more, they look gorgeous in a bedroom setting thanks to their association with warmth. Paired with complementary hues from the same side of the spectrum – think dusky pink, chalky terracotta and burnt orange – they will bring a welcoming softness to any space.

If you’re looking to introduce larger blocks of colour into any interior scheme, we’d always recommend using a variety of different tones to create depth, especially with a bold primary colour such as yellow. Soft furnishings are a great way to do this and a variety of shades can be introduced across throws, cushions and curtains in a mix of different textures. For the summer months, we love the tactility of linen which brings with it a beautiful softness whilst still offering cool breathability.

If you’re feeling brave, why not make a real statement with an upholstered headboard and divan base in a yellow hue?  Our mustard fabric is perfect for this and is the ideal shade of mellow for a bedroom scheme. Paired with crisp white sheets and scatter cushions in similar colours it will transform your bedroom into a calm, yet characterful space.

For those just wanting to dip a toe, a small collection of coloured accents and accessories will instantly pep up a space. Matching bedside lamps in a soft yellow hue will make an eye-catching display and the symmetry will create balance and harmony in an instant.

What do you think? Will you be adding this sunny shade to your home this season?
