I have this crazy obsession with the colour yellow at the moment. I think it’s because it’s reaching the end of our winter here in South Africa, and the colour reminds me of all the things I miss about summer. I think it’s a great colour to add to a room to give it a special lift and it can be used in small quantities yet is really striking and effective. I inherited a beautiful ball and claw foot dining room table from my grandparents when they moved house, and I’m thinking of somehow using yellow paint to give it a bit of a spruce up.
Here are some ideas for using yellow in your bathroom which hopefully gets you inspired.
Above: I love how this bathroom is so simple yet so striking. A yellow wall, some black and white wallpaper and furniture, an oversized picture and a ball and claw bath and you’ve got a recipe for perfection.
Above: This is a great idea to add colour to the bathroom without making it a permanent fixture. The yellow can be changed any time if you get bored of it or feel like another colour.
Above: If you’re not brave enough to use yellow in the bathroom, why not paint a piece of furniture yellow and you can put it in your bathroom to store towels. I would prefer to do this similar idea with a ball and claw foot cabinet, but this one looks great too.
Above: For a more modern look in a smaller space, these yellow tiles are great as they look trendy yet are practical too
Above: This wallpaper certainly makes a statement, and requires nothing else in the bathroom but the toilet.
Above: I’m not a huge fan of this myself, but if you’re into the whole playing with patterns idea, this could be the look for you.
Above: This statement wallpaper is paired with the neutral yet bold cabinet underneath and certainly creates a wow factor.
Above: This is a more classic look with a slightly paler colour yellow. The flowers used, bathtub and taps all add to the look and really create a feeling of luxury.
Above: This bathroom looks like a great idea if you’re on a tight budget. Just pair simple grey tiles with some yellow accessories and you’ve got a winner. The white of the bathroom appliances also compliments the look, and you can always change the colour if you get bored of it.
Above: I love the legs of these sinks-they really say a lot. The yellow mosaic tiles here are interesting as they create texture and dimension.
Above: This yellow wallpaper is exquisite. It has a classic feel about it and can be paired with many other colour accessories.
