August in Color: Rev Up Your Room With Yellow

By Shannon Kaye, Color Marketing Manager
August 2021
As bold yellows continue to dominate home color trends, it seems pretty obvious that people are ready for change and looking to get some good vibes going at home.
white
If you're ready to shake things up, shock the system a little, or just bring some sunshine inside, here are just a few ideas to get your maize-y mojo going.

Warm honey gold yellow dining rooms walls with Kelly-Moore historic color HLS4291 Bungalow Maple
If the pandemic has taught us anything it's that our rooms look so much better when they're filled with loved ones and laughter.
white
Suddenly mismatched chairs and hand-me-down tablecloths feel so chic with a few foraged fruits and branches on display. And walls that feel sun-faded by day seem to glow by candlelight.

Up-level  your eclectic room by  tidying up the  knicknacks and painting the walls a warm muted honey color to add vintage European charm. Bungalow Maple supports long visits over food and can even help your stay focused on office work during the day.

And speaking of WFH (working from home), yellow can be an amazing accent color that helps you feel positive as you tackle your emails.
white
Now, for some people yellow can be too active a color making it more challenging to concentrate. If you're one of those people, opt for small cheerful yellow accents- a chair, a pillow or piece of art- that can spark creative ideas without feeling overwhelming.

Kelly-Moore Paints Tawny Daylily KM5231 for bright WFH home office spaces
white
Consider dramatic Tawny Daylily for an accent wall, re-purposed dresser, or even lower cabinets in your work space. Then balance the look with soft neutrals like smoky warm gray, soft off-black or creamy white.

Art Deco Spanish Revival house with yellow front door featured by Kelly-Moore Paints
white
To give dated and dark exteriors a retro cool vibe turn classic color combos on their head by changing up the placement.
white
This art deco revival house probably had a dark stained front door. Nothing wrong with it! But being bold enough to paint it in a classic yellow like our California Chamois HLS4205 enhances the Spanish style details and gives the house a sunny glamour.

Kelly-Moore Paints California Chamois HLS4205 for front doors and bold cabinets
white
When people refer to a 'classic California Landscape' they're talking about blue skies, lonely oak trees, and rolling hills carpeted in golden grasses. We created California Chamois to reflect that spirit of romance and promise.

Color blocking accent feature wall in a scandi dining room with art by Shannon Kaye and Ray Beldner
white
Color blocking is a simple and effective tool for defining wide open spaces and creating a beautiful backdrop for your favorite art. Use bold colors to set off black and white photos. And soft neutral colors to frame bright artwork.
 Kelly-Moore Paints Sun God KM5183 for color blocking and bright yellow accents
white
We predicted Sun God for 2020's Color of the Year, and feel like we could do it again for 2022!
It just feels to good whether you drench your room in it or make one cool piece in your room stand out with a coat of color.
