1. Mustard yellow

The mustard yellow or curry yellow is highly coveted in today's interiors. Ultra present in Scandinavian atmospheres, this yellow can also dress a wall as well as decline in decorative elements (throws, cushions, baskets, bed linen, carpets ...). And if it goes wonderfully in Scandinavian decor, it is also the case for other styles of atmospheres (modern, vintage, industrial ...). It can also be used on many fabrics such as linen, velvet or cotton for example. Close to an ocher hue, this yellow brings a touch of color to your rooms. And contrary to what one might think, mustard yellow goes well with all colors. Green, blue, gray, white, brown ... these colors go very well with mustard yellow, also known as curry yellow.

2. Pastel yellow

Another variation, pastel yellow. Largely lighter than mustard yellow, it is however just as pretty in an interior, on a wall or a tablecloth for example. Pastel colors, pink, yellow or blue, can be perfectly integrated in a child's bedroom, living room or kitchen. Very popular in Scandinavian decor, pastel yellow is however left or double: we like it or we don't like it. But if you don't necessarily want to cover all its walls with pastel yellow, you can however opt for small touches here and there and in particular bet on decorative objects.

3. Dark yellow

This time more intense, the dark yellow imposes itself in a slightly more daring decor. To integrate dark yellow into your decor, however, you have to think carefully so as not to risk putting too much everywhere or putting it in the wrong room. Bordering on orange, this deep yellow is ideal for a section of wall in a bedroom or in a living room. It allows you to enhance the appearance of the room in the blink of an eye.

4. The fluorescent yellow

There too, the fluorescent yellow is to be adopted sparingly by incorporating small touches here and there. On storage boxes in a children's room like here, in an entrance hall or a laundry room for example but preferably not in living rooms such as the kitchen or living room (or very lightly).

5. The bright yellow

At the limit of fluorescent, the bright yellow brings pep and cheerfulness in your interior! Preferably on a wall of the living room to illuminate the room, in a bathroom to revive it or at the head of the bed for a fun bedroom, we adopt the bright yellow! The bright yellow is also perfect for lighting up a dark entrance. However, we do not recommend adopting it in total look, you may get bored very very quickly.

6. Aged yellow

Here, unlike neon yellow or bright yellow, we are rather on gray yellow. Perfect for a designer interior, retro or even vintage, the aged yellow effect will offer a certain, rather charming, atmosphere. To prefer in a living room to give it a vintage touch (carpet, cushions, plaid ...).

7. Lemon yellow

If some find the lemon yellow too showy and too daring, others love it for its cheerful hue. Tonic, the Yellow lemon is ideal to illuminate a room and bring it to life! So why not in a kitchen, in the hall or in an office? And did you know that yellow had the gift of giving the impression of enlarging a room? If your entrance, your laundry room or your toilet seems too narrow, you know what you have to do!
