Beautiful use of yellow in this master room designed by top interior designer Katharine Pooley

Mellow Yellow

Canary, ochre, cadmium, gold and lemon. 2021 I feel is the year for use of yellow in interior design accents. Yellow helps to lift the soul and can breathe some much-needed brightness into any space. This I feel is especially appropriate when considering the darkness that has challenged so many since the pandemic struck last year.

My design studio wants to bring uplifting interiors into the lives of our clients and those that enjoy the spaces we create. Yellow accessories lift the mood and add a dash of brilliant colour to a tonal interior. My studio acknowledges that even those that love the bright yellow accents should aim to balance this vitality with soft greys and whites.

I hope you are able to bring some inspiration from these images and use in your own interior design schemes.
