Every color has a certain impact on an existing décor and we’re not talking here about color psychology. It’s simply a matter of style and looks. A color such as yellow, for example, is bright and eye-catching and it would be a cheerful addition to a space such as the living room. A yellow couch or sofa can be the centerpiece of the room. The question that remains is “how will you decorate the space around it?”
Well, the options are numerous. One idea would be to use prints and patterns to integrate the yellow sofa into the living room without making it seem out of place. The accent pillows are quirky and fun and they combine well with the yellow on the sofa.
Another idea is to use a bright shade of yellow in combination with other neon shades such as pink or blue or orange. This way no color will stand out individually. Instead they’ll all be eye-catching as a whole.
But not all yellows have to be that bright and flashy. Mellow tones can be very beautiful as well and they combine well with light wooden surfaces and with other soft colors. A sofa such as this one can be the unexpected touch of color in a neutral décor.
If you don’t want the yellow sofa to be the only colorful piece in the living room, you can add a few other fresh and cheerful elements such as a green plant, a quirky coffee table or a set of fun accent pillows.
We’ve said this numerous times: yellow and gray are two colors that work beautifully together. They complement each other nicely. One is fun and vibrant and the other one is dark and neutral. Together they create the perfect balance.
Isn’t it beautiful the way this yellow couch grounds the space? The living room has a high ceiling and the shelves fill the empty void in a simple and casual manner. The couch maintains a lightweight look and keeps the décor from becoming cluttered and uncomfortable.
