Bring some sunshine into your life

This bright, pastel-yellow shade will make it feel like spring all year round.

For a contemporary style, mix in geometric prints for cushions and a rug, wallpaper or artwork. Pair with refreshing bursts of mint for a cool contrast, but stick to a neutral base of white for the main pieces of furniture. If all white feels a little cold for your home, pale wood will add some warmth.

Rather than going all out with yellow-painted walls, you can update a bookcase for an extra hit of sunny yellow, try Widenor Chevron Yellow wallpaper, £56 per roll, Graphic Resource collection,
Thibault. Or brighten up a neutral wall with graphic prints, Mustard Yellow Triangle print and Spring print, both £3.37 for download, Melinda Wood Designs range,
