Celebrate Prosperity and Joy by Decorating Home with Yellow

Add a touch of imperial legacy to your home.

Good things are said to come to those who let yellow into their lives, at least in China. They even have a saying: “If the clouds are yellow, prosperity will follow”. China’s great civilisation is said to have begun in 2,697 BC with the legendary Huangdi, known as the ‘Yellow Emperor’, who is credited with introducing wooden houses, writing and martial arts. For centuries, yellow was the imperial colour, and to this day stands for progress, happiness, glory and evolution in China.

Introduce a cheery yellow in your home, perhaps as an accent colour in a bathroom or kitchen, and who knows? Perhaps it could be auspicious for you, too.

Brighten Your Bathroom with Yellow

Yellow in the bathroom makes mornings feel sunny and cheerful. You don't have to paint the whole bathroom yellow. You could just add a few yellow towels or a yellow shower curtain. If you feel more adventurous, a yellow wall can really shine with white tiles.

  • Bright Mornings: Yellow helps you start your day feeling fresh and energetic.

  • Mix with Other Colours: Yellow goes well with white or grey. It also looks nice with blue.

  • Warm Feel: Yellow makes your kitchen feel inviting.

  • Great Pairs: Yellow cabinets look great with white walls.



Living Room Glow with Yellow

Yellow in the living room can make it bright and welcoming. You don't need to do a lot. You might use yellow cushions, a yellow rug, or maybe a yellow lamp. If you have a small space, a yellow armchair can make a big difference.
