Yellow in the Bathroom

June 1st, 2013 | Comments (0)

From pale, soft buttery yellows to bold, zingy citrus hues, yellow is a happy color that can bring energy and warmth into a space. It’s an especially smart color choice for those who live in cold climates or where sunshine is in short supply — you can fake it with a hot, sunny hue on the wall. But be aware that greenish yellows are not the most flattering color for most skin tones, so consider surrounding yourself in a warmer shade that veers more toward orange. Paler yellows work well as neutrals, so they can be paired with a variety of other hues. Bolder yellows look fantastic with contrasting cooler neutrals, such as grays and slate blues. Golden yellows used with warm neutrals, such as beige and tan, can create a relaxed, beachy vibe.

Below are a handful of my yellow paint color picks for bathrooms, along with nine knockout bathrooms that use yellow.
