Yellow is known as one of the most radiant, engaging and relaxed colors, as it is capable of lighting up any environment and creating essential points of color in different styles of decoration, regardless of whether it is a stronger or lighter tone, and for this reason the color becomes increasingly present in architectural and interior design projects.

Super intense and optimistic, the yellow color is a perfect option for those who want to transform any room in the house in a simple way and, when present on the walls, it also helps to demarcate what should be highlighted in the environment, making it much more cheerful and bright .

According to the architect Camilla Dall’oca, yellow is a warm color that inspires energy and is ideal for living and leisure environments, and can be the decisive point for the creative decoration of a house.

With that in mind, we list below the professional’s tips on how to use color, as well as amazing decor inspirations with yellow walls, which will undoubtedly leave your home with much more life. Check it out and get inspired!

What colors go well with yellow?


According to the architect, there are several colors that can make beautiful combinations with yellow. If the objective is to highlight the color and leave the rest of the decoration balanced, the ideal is to bet on contrasting colors, such as black and white, or more neutral colors, such as gray and woody tones. “White helps to bring out the yellow in a light and cheerful way, while black and gray are responsible for making the environment a little more serious”, he comments.

However, if you have a bolder taste, you can also combine yellow with other bright colors such as orange, pink, pink, purple, red and green. “The most important thing is that regardless of the choice of colors, you must always maintain balance and harmony in the environments of the house”, adds Camilla.

A good way to contrast the yellow color of the wall with other tones is betting on varied furniture or decorative items that do not overload the environment, such as paintings, chairs, tables, pillows, rugs, vases, among others.

The yellow wall can be a perfect alternative especially for rooms with little sunlight and little natural light, as the color helps to give a greater sense of clarity.

For Camilla, the ideal is that you bet on lighter tones, which are usually more suitable for bedrooms and rest environments. “In addition to the wall, a great idea is also to use yellow in various objects, such as the bed cover, pillows, bedside tables, rug or curtains”, comments the architect.

One of the most sought after possibilities by people who intend to bring yellow to the living room is to adopt the color for one of the walls and leave its surface as the very focus of the decoration. “In this case, you can enhance the natural wall, just put a simple support table in front and avoid adding too many decorative items, so that the environment doesn’t get overloaded”, says Camilla.

And who said that the bathroom can’t also have a splash of vibrant and intense color? In both personal rooms and washrooms, you can bring yellow to the walls in a variety of ways, such as tiles, various tiles, modern coatings or even wallpapers, which are essential to ensure a contemporary and stylish look to the environment.
