Decorate with Yellow | Tips and Inspiration on #yellow #colorfiles #decorating

Hi Friends!!  Its Megan here from Megan Campbell Designs back with another edition of the Color Files!!

I don’t know about you guys, but the summer around our house is flying by!!  It has been a beautiful summer filled with glorious sunshine days.  So…in honor of all the sunshine….this month I am bringing you all things YELLOW!!!

Yellow is commonly associated with gold, wealth, sunshine, reason, happiness, optimism and pleasure!!

It can be a powerful…overtaking color, but when used correctly…it can bring so much warmth to a space.

I love this kitchen……painting just the bottom cabinets yellow adds a fun pop of color without being overbearing.  This is such a fun and cozy space.

Here is another yellow kitchen.  This is more dramatic with both the lower cabinets painted as well as the trim around those beautiful windows.

Speaking of Yellow cabinets….what do you guys think of this bright yellow bathroom vanity??  Is it too much for you??

Or do you like the simple clean lines with the bright cabinet??

Yellow can be extremely overpowering in a room…..if doing your entire kitchen or bathroom is too much yellow….

The always fabulous Jenny Komenda from Little Green Notebook is one of my all time favorite DIYers.

She created these awesome yellow curtains for her girls playroom out of inexpensive Ikea panels and yellow dye.  I think they turned out amazing.

  1. I love yellow! I have yellow accents throughout my home. I painted my office walls yellow. I stenciled one of the walls with Rabat Allover pattern in turquoise. It’s my favorite room in my house!!
