Kids rooms: Decorating with yellow

May 21, 2015

decorating with yellow accents

Yesterday, my friend’s 70-something dad came to the school gates wearing yellow trousers and a purple sweater.  I can’t tell you how cool he looked!  I think yellow is such a striking colour but so under-used in clothing, in decor and everywhere.  I love kids in yellow and one of the best places to use yellow is in a kids room – boy, girl or baby room.  It’s a colour that transcends gender and age and above all it is such a happy colour.  In a kids room I wouldn’t go so far as painting walls yellow because for me a little yellow goes a long way.  But adding little yellow touches can quickly brighten even the dullest of rooms.  And any kind of decor – modern, vintage, retro – can benefit with a bit of yellow.  Here are some inspiring kids rooms that show how stunning decorating with yellow can be:

This baby nursery isn’t all about the yellow but just the smallest touches of yellow really brighten this room.  And the yellow works so well with the minty green too.

How cool is this room?  This room has the smallest yellow accents and yet the yellow adds so much cheer to the room.  This is a boys room but black, white and a little yellow thrown in is a winning combination for for any gender or age.

This is another boys room where the yellow comes in the form of the metal bed – such a great way to add your splash of yellow.  If you can’t find a yellow metal bed, you can always get a white one and paint it.  This vintage inspired room looks so fun and cosy and the yellow bed would work just as well in a girls room.

How gorgeous is this girls room?  The yellow is used sparingly by adding just the odd cushion, storage basket and a few objects but that’s all this room needs.  The colour combination of soft pink with light grey and touches of bright yellow really is beautiful.

Last is this sweet vintage room which again uses lots of yellow decorations in different shades of yellow.  Imagine this room without the yellow – it would look quite bland.  The yellow brings the white walls to life but still doesn’t overpower.

Would you consider decorating with yellow?
