Color of the Month: Yellow

by Erika Woelfel

April is the month of renewal, and the time many of us start thinking about spring updates around the house. This year yellow is taking the lead as one of the first colors we see both in nature and as a decorative color.

Shades of spring yellow range from ducklings to daffodils, and the best place to use it is anywhere you want to add a note of cheer. Typically found in kitchens, yellow also works for bedrooms (see gallery below) and is a great “pick-me-up” accent in any room of the home.

Light yellow creates a warm glow in a bedroom.


Vibrant accents like lime green or bright red add a modern twist in traditional rooms with yellow walls.


Yellow accents immediately bring this cool and neutral living room to life!


Yellow is a strong color, and often needs the balance of white and gray to keep it from overpowering a room.


Colorfully yours,
