Pastels are already exploding on the market in soft blush and fresh mint tones. Yellow is making a comeback as a buttery and calm colour that is uplifting and relaxing!
Used on walls for a great backdrop, it acts as a pseudo neutral with more warmth and character than a beige or grey.
Yellow can be utilized to make a space feel more traditional when paired with classic colours such as reds and browns
Contemporary updates to yellow by contrasting with soft greys can be striking in a modern interpretation. Playful polka dots help keep the grey feeling youthful and is a great neutral backdrop for crib and furniture.
Benjamin Moore declared a soft shade of yellow as their colour of the year:
“Luscious lemon sorbet (2019-60), our Color of the Year for 2013, is the perfect transitional color between the mid-tones and saturated colors seen in today’s home furnishings and the softer, lighter pastels which are emerging for 2013. This beautiful yellow harmonizes with other trending pastels in the mint, coral, pink, blue, and vanilla families. Uplifting without being overpowering, lemon sorbet (2019-60) complements almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.”
