Welcome to the third part of our colour series, styling with yellow. Our focus colour of the week is the stunning yellow of the Tuscan wheat fields. Often called fields of gold for their natural radiance and beauty. We see acres of breathtaking wheat fields on our travels through Tuscany, sourcing handmade, original pieces for AllÓRA. They are an inspiration to the many artisans we engage to provide traditionally crafted items for our customers.
The Colour Yellow
Yellow is the colour of sunshine! It brings hope, happiness and colour into your life so why wouldn’t you want to add a touch of it to your home? It’s a positive colour bringing energy and life to a room, which means it works wonderfully in family rooms and kitchens. Yellow can be used as the main colour as a wall paint as it comes in many hues from pale corn silk to orange-yellow. Check out this excellent blog on Houzz on picking the right shade of yellow.
As there are so many shades of yellow to choose from, the colour combinations are endless. Yellow and grey are a perfect match. It pairs well with green. Yellow, pink and cream is a beautiful combination. It goes well with turquoise as well as blue and navy. Lilac, brown, black and white are all good colours to combine with yellow.
This is a delightful example of yellow with green, brown and white for a soft springtime look by House Beautiful. See the full blog here.
