What Houzz contributors are saying:
The lore of color in kids’ rooms takes even more twists. I recently met one of the color consultants at Hello My Name Is Color in San Francisco, who informed me of a much-ballyhooed prohibition in interior design against painting baby’s rooms yellow, on the grounds that it’s too stimulating to encourage sleep. Having grown up in a sunflower-colored bedroom, I wondered, Did I plague my parents with incessant, unexplained yowling? Or does this color myth simply not hold water?
Avocado green and yellow in a guest room — very throwback and very modern.
In this great bedroom the classic, modern lines of the beds and nightstand are softened by the splash of citron everywhere. Without this powerful color or coordinating accessories, the space would feel more minimalist and not as interesting. Throwing in a punchy color is one easy way to soften modern details.
Yellow seems to be the reason for the season (well, next spring season) and that's OK by me! Nothing says "spring" like yellow, whether in homes or in garments. I especially like mixing yellow with unexpected colors, like green, for the ultimate fresh look. Carolina Herrera showed a lovely and sophisticated line featuring yellow as a base with green accents.
As you can see, you can also use a lot of little touches to create a space that has much more yellow and green it. We've got those colors here in the artwork, curtains, carpet, furniture, pillows, headboards and knick knacks. And yet, because each of these items is not predominantly those colors the effect is calming rather than overwhelming.
