Sunshine yellow is perhaps the happiest of colours, bringing positivity, energy and excitement. This joyful shade will always grab attention, but it also offers a warmth and comfort that other types of yellow can’t provide.
About the colour sunshine yellow
We’ve previously talked about using yellow in your interior design, but today we want to focus on the most bright and beautiful version of this hue: sunshine.
Sunshine yellow is a rich and juicy shade. It is synonymous with the warmer, sunnier times of year, the ones that we associate with picnics, holidays and family time. It is also the shade frequently used in road and safety signs, because it’s so easy to see from long distances.
Sunshine yellow sits alongside daffodil, canary and egg yolk. These bright yellows are less fruity and jarring than neon shades, but more vibrant and stimulating than the likes of lemon or banana.
A colour of hope and happiness, sunshine yellow is far from the connotations of illness and jealousy that a sour yellow shade might suggest. Instead, it is warming and welcoming, with a cheerful confidence that’s sure to boost your mood.
How to use sunshine yellow in your home
When decorating your home, it’s important to use any shade of yellow in the right place and with the right proportions. This will prevent a space from becoming overwhelmed – sunshine yellow is an incredibly bold shade, after all.
This vibrant hue will create a big focal point in your space. It’s a particularly great choice for kitchens or any room where you tend to start your day, bringing sunshine no matter the weather. Pops of sunshine yellow will also work in the bedroom, such as artwork, accessories and the soft furnishings on your bed. Or you could brighten up your home office with a sunshine yellow blind or lamp shade.
Sunshine yellow works beautifully in a variety of fabrics including cotton, silk and velvet. In terms of colour combinations, it’s no surprise that it works perfectly with sky blue – the colours are a match made in heaven. Sunshine yellow also works well when teamed with monochromatic shades, bringing a dynamic balance. For an elegant statement, mix sunshine yellow with petrol blue or forest green, and for a more feminine boho space, combine with tangerine orange or blush pink.
With both a retro and contemporary appeal to it, sunshine yellow is the perfect choice for styling up your home, no matter your interior tastes. Take a look at some of our top picks for sunshine yellow furnishings, including made to measure blinds, curtains, cushions and lamp shades.
