BUTTERYSMO­OTH

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - COLOUR OF THE MONTH -

We’ve all heard the rhyme Yel­low, Yel­low, Dirty Fel­low,

which prob­a­bly ex­plains why the shade may not be pop­u­lar. How­ever, as we ap­proach the end of the year – and while land­scapes in the western hemi­sphere are bathed in au­tum­nal hues – we’re see­ing a grow­ing de­mand for this par­tic­u­lar shade among trendy home­own­ers. Such a mel­low yel­low con­jures up images of a dusky sun­set as seen through tinted glasses be­hind steam ris­ing from a cup of pip­ing hot tea. In the liv­ing room, this sub­dued yel­low evokes a calm­ing am­bi­ence and helps to bal­ance out the other colours in the space. It also adds a sense of depth, mak­ing the room feel roomier.

Mel­low yel­low brings out the el­e­gant curves of mid-cen­tu­ryin­spired fur­ni­ture such as this con­sole from Es­sen­tial Home.
