Three Top Interior Designers Show How To Work Yellow

Adding WARMTH and PLAYFULNESS, yellow has a TRANSFORMATIVE POWER when worn or added to your interiors. Think of a vase of daffodils – which always raises a smile. YELLOW LIGHTENS and brightens, though is best used as an accent if you are wary of all-out colour blocking …

 

Kelly Wearstler, whose signature style is “Hollywood Regency”, is a fan of yellow as an accent colour and is particularly fond of using it to offset a monochrome scheme, as shown here at Viceroy Palm Springs Hotel. Do read her book Modern Glamour which will allay fears that yellow is anything but stylish.

Kelly Behun shows how yellow illuminates and increases a room size no matter how small. Synonymous with “Modern Warm” décor, this hallway is from one of Behun’s projects in Park Avenue, New York.

David Collins Studio is renowned for its elegant design schemes. To update a classic blue and white room, adding yellow accent chairs brings a sense of energy to this scheme at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Bangkok.
