Bringing Yellow Into Your Dining Room
Yellow can serve a broad range of roles. It’s unappreciated for what it can do, finding a home in less than 2 percent of dining rooms. It can act as a subtle backdrop for contrasting colors like violet. It’ll gladly play the role of supporting actress to bolder shades like eggplant. But that’s just one of its many uses.
Bright yellow accent pieces add an instant pop of energy to a room. You can use it as an occasional chair in case extra guests drop in for dinner. It’ll make a great conversation piece as a leaning ladder shelf. The key to making the most out of yellow dining room design ideas is to use only a few pieces with this eye-catching color.
Brighten a Room with a Northern Exposure
There’s not much you can do if you have a dining room with a northern exposure. It’ll mean drastic action to make sure it doesn’t feel cold and unwelcoming. That’s where yellow can help lighten the mood. It’s a warm color without many exceptions. But it also conjures images of the sun which takes it to another level.
You’ll feel its warmth even in the dead of winter. Carry the theme with other design elements, such as hardwood floors. It’ll add a connection with nature that is always compelling no matter what the style. Don’t underestimate the power of yellow. Even smaller pieces like a vase or decorative plate can make a huge statement. But it’s best used in moderation in this use.
You can let yellow envelope a Mediterranean-style room. In other decors, it’s best used in smaller doses for the greatest effect.
