Spring is well and truly under way and we’re turning our interiors attention onto the hottest colours of the season. While the sun hasn’t had that many outings as we bound into April, Swedish homeware giant IKEA has already made the call that yellow is the tone that is set to brighten up our homes in the coming months.
Although this bold shade might not be for everyone, with hues from canary all the way through to a subtler mustard on offer, there’s truly something for all tastes. Whether you choose to splash a shade of yellow over a statement wall or add some low-key yellow accents in the form soft furnishings, is totally up to you.
Commenting on this on-trend colour Clotilde Passalacqua, Interior Design Leader at IKEA UK and Ireland says, ‘Yellow can be incorporated into the home in a variety of ways. For a gentle touch, use textiles such as the MAJGULL curtains or the LANGSTED rug, to introduce subtle colour tones into different rooms, whilst still creating an impact.
‘Larger pieces of furniture such as the STRANDMON wing chair or INDUSTRIELL chair will make a bolder statement in the kitchen or living room and will help to fully welcome the new season into your home.’
