Yellows range from creamy, daffodil, and sunflower yellows to acid yellows. The correct shade of yellow will be the one that speaks right to your soul. The most important part here is to avoid shades that generate discomfort, since too obtrusive yellow tones may have a lot of negative psychological consequences. You also shouldn’t pick yellow wallpaper just because it’s trendy!
What colors complement yellow the best?
One of the yellow's finest characteristics is that it matches a wide variety of other hues, including white, orange, green, pink, blue, and brown. Choose one or two yellow colors as focal points, as well as a dark neutral and white dose for a well-balanced color palette, to produce the best yellow color scheme. If you wish to add extra color, look for green, purple, or red in the same field as yellow.
Let's take a closer look at the complementary color scheme, which includes yellow and purple. If you find that you've used too much yellow and feel overwhelmed, simply add purple to balance it off. Purples’ psychological properties always match and balance yellow's.
Consider choosing an analogous color scheme if you want a tranquil palette. This is where you utilize colors that are nearby on the color wheel. Since there is no sharp contrast between the colors, it is considered peaceful. That would be yellow – orange – red. Combine this selection with a neutral, such as white from the same color family (cream, white, ivory, oyster).
What are the best tips for using yellow wallpaper successfully?
Consider the light
Natural light has a bigger influence on the color you choose than you would believe. This Magnolias In The Sun yellow wallpaper, for example, feels very earthy, allowing its underlying tones to absorb strong light, making it ideal for interiors with a huge skylight or windows. On contrary, buttery pastel yellows that give off brightness even on rainy days are a great choice for dark spaces.
Layer yellow on yellow
One of the reasons oceans are so captivating is because the many blues interact with one another. To enhance dimension, use a variety of yellow paint tones ranging from mild pastel to deep mustard. For instance, see how this Sicilian Style yellow wallpaper provides a welcoming atmosphere by combining two contrasting shades of yellow.
Alternatively, go for an all-over technique by saturating the area with this vibrant color. Whether you go all-in on yellow or layer the hues, blues, greens, and pinks will help the yellow stand out.
Tone it down with beautiful wall decor
Are you afraid to try yellow? Camouflage it. Yellow is a powerful hue, therefore it's important to consider its influence when implementing it in design. Let's take a yellow wallpaper accent wall, for instance. You can easily add contrast by layering artwork over it. This helps to balance the color intensity and adds intrigue.
Use yellow wallpaper as an accent
If you don't want to go for a completely yellow look, a yellow accent works well. These lemon yellow wallpapers – Lemon Tree and Lost In Lemons – for example, may brighten up any space for both adults and children. The vibrant citrus hue contrasts wonderfully with white or navy.
Bring out the best in blue
It's no secret that blue and yellow go well together, but instead of going all-in, consider the combo. See for yourself! Until the saturated yellow palms arrived there, this blue Stylish Polka Dots wallpaper was simply another typical piece.
Another great example of a yellow & blue combo are these Colorful Twig and Water And Sun yellow wallpapers – no doubt that with wallpapers like these you will make a statement instantly!
