Building on a neutral blank slate, the mood of your living room can be changed by adding joyous, sunny yellow and other primary colors.


Neutral living room

A neutral base is a great beginning for decorating, especially in a rental or small room where white walls visually expand the space. This living room starts with a single palette of neutrals.


Yellow living room-2

Jolts of color and pattern can quickly rev up a neutral room. Try this: Pick three hues that are evenly spaced on the color wheel (red + yellow + blue = a triad color scheme). Let one color dominate; here, it’s yellow.


Yellow living room rug

A sunny yellow-and-white trellis-pattern rug is layered atop the jute floor covering.


Yellow living room coffee table

The coffee table gets a refreshed frame in buttery hues.


Yellow living room coffee table top

Too much yellow may tire the eyes, so snow-white ceramic pieces provide visual relief—even though they occupy a bright yellow tray. Lining it with a square of floral paper brings a pretty pattern to the top of the coffee table.


Yellow living room pillow and lamp

A lampshade, abstract painting, lively pillows and whimsical crocheted afghan mix red, yellow and blue with abandon. You can feel the temperature rising.


Yellow living room side chair

Squares of black-and-white fabric cool down the bright hues seen in theis midcentury-style chair’s retro patchwork upholstery. Behind it, a yellow-painted side table makes sure your eyes reach that corner of the room. Fresh flowers link to the nearby painting’s subject.


Yellow living room

Bold and happy, yellow adds a splash of joy to a room. These pieces lighten the mood with their bright, uplifting tones.
