Nothing lifts the mood like an energising dose of sunshine – and the same goes for the colour we associate it with. So bring the good vibes into your home with splashes of yellow from across the spectrum. From zesty lemon to golden ochre, there is an accent shade to suit your scheme, so read on to bask in the glow.
Few of us want to decorate every year, so the simplest way to refresh a room is to create a neutral backdrop that is easy to update with accessories. These super-soft Fusion towels with their stylish geometric pattern and warm Saffron hue will instantly invigorate a subtle space, available from Johnlewis.com
The geometric pattern on this Lexis hand woven wool rug from Swoon Editions is bang on trend, while its cheery golden tones will look stunning against a dark timber floor. Accessorise with two or three pieces in a similar shade, such as cushions, vases or lamps, to keep the look balanced.
A sure-fire way to bring a tired bedroom to life is with a bold duvet set, like the Vector from Scion at Amara.com. It has a bold chevron pattern in slate grey and sunflower yellow that looks fresh and modern and a thinner zigzag on the reverse to complement. Pile on matching pillows and cushions for extra zest.
Inject colour stylishly with the Starkey table lamp from Made.com. Its slender frame, bare bulb and cool industrial style are beautifully offset by its warm Mustard hue. Whether placed by your bedside or in the sitting room, it will cast its sunny glow into your home all year round.
