Kids are back in school and summer vacations are now fond memories. If you love the warmth and energy of summer, yellow home décor could be just what you’re looking for. We're not talking safe, standard buttercup yellow. Give your home some serious shine with bright, energetic shades of sunny yellow. There's no need to be afraid of yellow. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about how you could incorporate yellow into your decor.

Add pops of yellow throughout your room to let the sun shine in even when there isn't any. Window treatments, accessories, and throw pillows are a great way to add some color. And don't worry, you can easily change any of them. When you're going bright, you can keep the color from being too overwhelming by using neutral colors like the light beige carpet and sofas in this room.
