We all don’t live on a yellow submarine or a yellow home or even have a room with yellow, but some of us might want to. I particularly like yellow in interior design. I also love yellow (soft) as a home exterior with white trim. I like a softer yellow such as Macaroon in the color chart below.
Of course you can go overboard, but it can be a good option for an accent wall if you like a bright home (like I do). You can implement a Mediterranean design with a mustard or earth tone yellow such as Biscotti or Granola shades (see chart below).
Yellow Color Chart
Like all colors, yellow has a wide spectrum of shades for very, very light to very, very bright. It also veers toward brown/beige. Here’s a simplified yellow color chart to give you an idea of the various shades of yellow.
Below are our various room design galleries that showcase yellow interior designs.
Yellow Trend in Design
As you can see yellow isn’t terribly popular as a color scheme in interior design. It’s pretty flat since 2004 across all main rooms of a home.
