Looking for a way to add interest to your space this weekend in an easy, cheery way? You need only add one single spot of bold and bright yellow color — in a piece of art, an accessory or even a whole furniture piece — and you'll instantly find you now have an interesting space. Could a pop of yellow be the thing your room's been missing? Could yellow be the color you've been trying to decide what to paint that old vintage furniture piece? These eight rooms have ideas.

Why yellow? Why solo? Easy — using one color in only one spot is unusual and eye-catching. And yellow is so bright and cheery it's hard to miss. No matter your home's color palette, even just one small spot of yellow can make a surprisingly big impact on a space.

You could always make your filing anything but boring with a punch of yellow color.

This room's cheating a bit — there's yellow in the pillow, too — but the affordable knitted poof adds softness and style in the hue of creamy yellow.

There's something so alluring about the above room. It could have been a room full of muted warm pastel tones with a too-heavy dark red rug, but those soft, subtle yellow accessories in the room center the whole space.

Even a room with plenty of other bold colors still sees a shot of interest from an off-centered yellow side table.

If an all-white kitchen is getting you down, the surest remedy is a cheery back splash of yellow tiles.

This room is also kind of cheating because there's yellow in the art, but you don't even notice with the bold, arresting all-yellow velvet bench that defines this stylish corner.

A moody space full of dark color and industrial details is lightened and brightened by a pinch of yellow in a side stool.
