Expand and illuminate the environments by painting the walls in pastel or soft yellow. Keep these points in mind to create a pleasant effect without falling into monotony.
Do you have doubts about using the pastel yellow color in the painting of the walls or the decoration of your house? Do not worry. Now we will see some tips that can help you not to make mistakes when using this soft and delicate hue in your home.
Why pastel yellow is a special color?
Let’s start by knowing some of the qualities of yellows that make them special, mainly pastel or soft tones.
They have a good affinity for light. In the same way as white, yellow reflects light, making the environment look bright. It is indicated for small rooms and where you want to accentuate the light and details. You must take into account adding all the light sources, natural or artificial, necessary to create this effect.
It is a very delicate color, and these characteristics are radiated in the environment in which it is used. In this way, bedrooms or living rooms are created with a serene and delicate appearance, in the same way, that pink, a soft green, or a pale lavender would do.
It tends to dazzle with excess light if you want to use it in places where a lot of natural light enters. You should consider if you really want to increase the luminosity in an environment where you stay for a long time. Maybe you need something less clear and less aggressive for your eyesight.
It can be simple or tasteless if it is not combined properly. It’s not just about painting pastel yellow and nothing else. It is always necessary to know with what other shades to accompany it, in which places it will look better and in which not.
Where can you paint soft yellow?
As I have already said several times in the notes of Pinto mi Casa, there are no special colors for particular environments. In this case, the yellows can be used wherever you want. But I can give you some suggestions:
It is a good choice for a bathroom, a place where light and the appearance of spaciousness are appreciated. It is also suitable for other confined spaces, such as entryways, hallways, and laundry rooms.
If you are not bothered by the light in the morning, it is a good color for the bedroom as it creates a serene and very delicate atmosphere.
It is suitable for the children’s room as long as it is combined with other colors to create a little more dynamism and variety. Here it can be accompanied by other pastel shades of pink, mint green, light blue, or lavender.
It is a good alternative to common environments, such as the kitchen, living room, or dining room, as long as you combine it with white. You must continually try to play with the contrasts and details to avoid falling into monotony.
White: the neutral that should not be missing. It facilitates the dispersion of light and accentuates the coloration of soft tones.
Gray: the alternative to white. It creates a very pleasant contrast effect, also providing a modern touch.
Brown or brown: earth tones are perfect, and the natural tones of wood and other existing materials.
Blues (mint, turquoise, apple): Used to create contrasts in minor details.
Not all of us have the same tastes and needs. Maybe you want to use the color yellow to paint or decorate because it seems the right one. On the contrary, other people will discard it from their favorite color palette. Perhaps with these tips, the result will be more than pleasant.
