Yellow Rooms For Smoky Days

Yellow Rooms For Smoky Days

With all of the ash and smoke floating in the air from the fires, California is not particularly sunny now. So, in order to inject a bit of sun into our currently grey lives, we rounded up some bright examples of this colour and the many moods it can have...

  • Marissa & Mark's Chic Garden Party: the pale yellow used here feels more like a reflection of sunshine than a colour. One trick to getting a pale colour is to find a shade you like and ask the paint store to cut the formula in half.
  • Scott's Silverlake Bachelor Pad: Yellow, used here in the hallway, is a good transition colour between the blue bathroom and the taupe office.
  • Karen's Cozy and Cheery Cherrywood Home: Yellow seems to be the default colour for a living room, maybe because it reminds us of how much we love lollygagging around in the sunshine; it's also often seen in kitchens.
  • Jora and Bryan's Midcentury Organic Remodel: Orange-yellow is an unusual colour for a kid's room but a good choice if you want to shy away from the pink or blue.
  • Seonna's Hillside Modern: Pair deep yellow with blue for a pop of colour; for a more subtle mix, pair yellow with its complements, pink and orange.
