Types of Yellow Paint Colors

Yellow – Yellow is a primary colour. It represents happiness, cheerfulness, sunlight and optimism. In interiors you can use yellow to create a bold contrast with other colours. If you want to create more vibrancy in a room you can substitute grey for yellow.

Ocher – Ocher is not exactly yellow, brown or mustard; but a combination of all three. It is a colour that can range from tan to slightly green. This is a natural earth pigment made mostly out of clay that is coloured by iron oxides.

Pale Yellow – A buttery yellow that is achieved by adding white to primary yellow. It is considered less garish than yellow and is great to use with within a neutral palette.

Boys Bedroom
It’s really so dismal outside today, I needed to see some sun and some sunny yellow, so here it is….sun from last week and the colour that runs through our house.

A corner of the eldest’s bedroom.
The walls were painted in French Grey and all the woodwork is Mister David, both by Little Greene.
It’s a very bold yellow. I just love the way it frames the room and brings some interest to a boys room. And well, you know I love yellow…

New England modern country house pantry that I decorated. I mostly work on old houses but enjoy challenges and variety. This was a wonderful new build house in Boston’s North Shore, USA.

Another kitchen in a bright and chirpy yellow, love the scallops on these kitchen cabinets.

What better room to inspire you than this scullery from a recent country house project. We wanted it to be a cheerful place that always felt sunny even when the weather outside had other ideas… somewhere that makes getting organised fun!

We suggested that the client get traditional glass cloths made for the house, which we then joined together to make the gathered curtain. The fact that they weren’t quite long enough meant that this was the perfect place to reuse the scalloped pelmet from a four poster bed that we were repurposing in another room! The perfect opportunity to reuse and reinvent.

The scallop motif was then echoed in the shelf apron to make sure that this room felt decorative and not just utilitarian and now it’s a very happy place to get jobs done in!
