Yellow isn't a color I use much, but I'm thinking I should change that. I just love the way the ochres and mustards work in these rooms.
They add life to more subdued palettes, making them feel layered, not drab.
They lend a real richness to bright and neutral spaces, too.
They pair just divinely with greens.
And I don't think they've ever met a blue or purple they didn't like.
Even in small doses, these mellow yellows make the whole space feel happier. You can't ask much more of a color than that.
