Sunshine yellow buys to brighten up your home

Neutral interiors can be comforting and cosy but, if you let it all get a bit too monotone, it can border on boring. Be bold and switch things up some yellow homeware, in all its varieties.

Mustard may be staying put as a big colour for 2018, but any yellow hue will immediately transform any dull, tired space into something bright and playful. If fully committing to such a bright colour intimidates you, not to worry, you can introduce some yellow accents instead. We have rounded up some top yellow picks to brighten up your home that’ll make you smile even when the sun isn’t shining.

Throw blanket

A gorgeous yellow throw for your sofa or bed, let it brighten up for life. Perfect for the beach too or even a cosy night, especially when the evenings start to get chilly again.
Plain weave blanket,€19.99, Zara.

 

Bean bag

This oversized bean bag is ideal for lounging in front of the television on. Suitable for a kid’s bedroom, den or family chill zone, everyone can collapse into one of these bean bags. Made out of long-lasting nylon fibres, it also has a PVC coating so can be easily wiped down and come in a variety of colours if you’re of the rainbow persuasion.
Bean bag, €199.95, finnishdesignshop.

 

Desk clock

Shake up your home office with something a little more uplifting than your average office stationery. This retro-style, flip mechanism, desk clock is the perfect way to introduce some bold colour. It’s boxy shape and analogue interface will ensure you don’t lose track of time.
Desk clock, around €193, Made.com

 

Coffee Table

This petite playful coffee table is perfect for holding your morning coffee or evening wine. Its plywood rounded frame, shape and colour would add a brightness to any interior.
Muuto table,€356, Houseology.
