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.
