Bright Color Combo: Yellow & Green

You might not think yellow and green would look great together in décor, mostly because they are so close on the color wheel. However, these colors, when used together, bring an incredible freshness to any home. They are bright and fun and can easily be found in stores during the spring and summer. Whether you buy a few new pillows or paint an entire room, we think you’ll agree that your home will be a happier place once it’s infused with yellow and green. See the photos below for more inspiration.

The best part about this room is that it’s full of great, geometric design. The green and yellow pillows are the perfect size for the couch, and the unique rug brings a vintage vibe to the room. The room is small, so a glass coffee table helps it to feel larger. The colors in this room also show how well blue coordinates with yellow and green.

This stunning contemporary home in New York uses a bold kelly green color on the walls. It was a great risk that paid off. DIY fans will love the artwork in this room as well, which are huge pieces of fabric or paper that are framed in crisp white frames with no mats. The walls are also heavily lacquered giving an incredible mirrored look to the space. The rug is a perfect addition to the space, grounding it with grays and blues.

This bright and fun guest room in Texas shows that you can easily incorporate yellow and green in your home with a simple use of accessories. These inexpensive pillows, some from Target, brighten up the space and bring in incredible texture. You’ll notice that the reason these colors pop is because of the neutral wall, white linens, and even white lamp and lampshade. These features allow the bright pillows to take center stage.

A fun and contemporary space, this home features bright green couches with fabulous yellow and orange pillows. This home definitely channels an optimistic vibe with large windows that allow light to stream in unhindered by curtains. Ultimately it shows that while these colors are bright, if used in the correct way they can be extremely effective.

The best part about this room is the incredible texture. Upholstered headboards make it comfortable, and chic window treatments also contribute to that feel. The combination of green and yellow especially comes into play with the bright pillows on the bed. Additionally, the large, geometric rug also adds to the cozy vibe, making it a fun space for kids to play.

We hope these gorgeous rooms inspire you to bring in some bright colors like yellow and green into your living space. You can do something as simple as put lemons and limes in a large bowl on your dining room table or as complicated as making over an entire room. Either way, these colors will bring a taste of summer into your home.{picture sources:1,2,3,4,5 and 6}.
