If you are someone who errs on the side of caution when it comes to your living room décor, let us tell you this – some risks are worth taking! And, although sometimes colors that are too bright can get overwhelming on the eyes, adding a splash of a bright color to the living room can totally transform the place instantly. Adding a yellow accent, for instance, to a living room can add cheer to even a dull décor.
Let’s look at a few beautiful living rooms where carefully using a yellow accent, adds life to the room and gives the décor of the entire space a whole new perspective.
What needs to be kept in mind is to add the color in moderation, making sure there are enough neutral colors in the setting to balance it out with, so that you don’t risk going over-the-top with the bright hue. And also to ensure that the color is spread around the setting and not restricted to just one area.
A good rule to follow is the 60-30-10 rule. When decorating a room, 60 percent should be the color of the walls, 30 percent a secondary color used, in the upholstery for instance, and 10 percent should be the accent color that you decide to use.
Paint isn’t the only way to add yellow accents to a room. It can even be sprinkled as yellow throw pillows or blankets, a wing chair that is yellow or a couch with hints of yellow in it. It can also be a painting or wall art with the color yellow figuring prominently in it. Or, believe it or not, yellow furniture. It might be time to give that old console table a fresh coat of yellow! And, did anyone say fresh yellow blooms? Why not!
