What shades of yellow are there?

It is also true for yellow that different shades of yellow have a completely different effect depending on their composition. Depending on which pigments are mixed with yellow, you can achieve a warm or cool atmosphere. Which variant you choose depends on how you want to use yellow tones in your interior design concept.

From mustard yellow to ochre: what shades are there?

The colour scheme of yellow tones ranges from an almost white, delicate pastel yellow to strong, fruity tones and a dark, warm yellow that tends towards ochre
White with Vanilla from MissPompadour is a typical example of an almost white yellow. Yellow with Saffron is a warm, almost muted yellow. Yellow with Lemon from MissPompadour creates a strong, bright yellow in your rooms.

Let the sunshine in: The effect of yellow as a wall paint

Yellow is a warm colour and makes a room appear larger and wider. Yellow colour shades are therefore ideal for small and dark rooms. If you opt for a light yellow wall paint, you can use it to paint all the walls in a room. If you are more inclined towards a mustard yellow wall paint, you should opt for an accent wall in your favourite yellow.
A pastel yellow wall paint has a stimulating and invigorating effect, promoting performance and concentration. Due to its association with sun and warmth, yellow puts us in a positive mood and allows us to communicate well.

For which rooms is yellow particularly suitable?

Yellow is ideal for use in the dining room in particular. A calm, warm tone such as ochre yellow really comes into its own here. Sunny yellow wall paints such as Yellow with Sun from MissPompadour or LittlePomp Yellow & Creative also work wonderfully in this area.
Yellow is also very suitable for rooms where meetings take place due to its stimulating effect . Here, the choice should fall on soft, yellow chalk paint, such as Yellow & Creativea from LittlePomp. But you can also enjoy the stimulating effect of yellow in the study. Why not paint part of the room in a Mediterranean yellow wall paint?

A lemon-yellow colour such as Yellow with Lemon, complemented with a violet, also has a dynamic effect
Shades of green in various shades also look highly interesting and very natural with yellow. A wall in the calm Green with Forest from MissPompadour with a chest of drawers in Yellow with Lemon from MissPompadour in front of it is guaranteed to be a highlight in your interior
But all earth and brown tones together with light, cool yellow tones also make a very harmonious combination. In addition to a wall in an accent colour, you can choosea wall paint in beigefor the other walls . Intense red and blue tones should not be forgotten, as they form an exciting relationship with all yellow tones. You should therefore combine them rather minimally and selectively.
If you want to give yellow a classy and elegant touch, combine it with soft petrol and clear white tones. This is where yellow really starts to shine.

What can I combine the colour with?

Yellow goes particularly well with dark wood tonesand dark lacquered furniture. To achieve a Mediterranean effect, you can also combine furniture and decorative items in pure white.
