Black and yellow is a powerful mix. We associate yellow with sunshine (remember that) happiness, and optimism. It stimulates the senses and is perfect when combined with strong sophisticated darker tones of black and grey.
It’s a strong colour so use with caution. A little goes a long way, simply adding an element of yellow into your design scheme can bring a room alive.
There are only 3 yellow elements in this room by Apartment Therapy yet the colour really pops out against the industrial feel to the rest of the room.
Here’s another example of how one single element can add a touch of flair to a space.
There’s a very sophisticated feel to this image from my Pinterest Board
I just love love love this quirky space from Brooklyn Bride. This is the design studio of Regas New York who design wedding stationery and invitations. The painted yellow fireplace works great against the pale wall. And I love the gallery wall feature using the companies products surrounded with backless frames.
Again yellow accents are used to create this bright eclectic bedroom
So what do you think. Are you ready to let some sunshine into your life? 🙂
