Say hello to warm, wonderful yellow€”our latest home decor colour obsession.

As a a kid, you’re constantly being asked about your favourite colour. It’s an important statement about who you are as a tiny person: one of the first moments of independent preference in a world controlled by boring grownups. I like blue. I want the purple one.And then, as an adult, people rarely ask you your favourite colour. At this point in your life, you’re well-aware that life is filled with nuance—occasions where you’ll prefer a red dress to a blue one, or get the urge to cover up a white wall with a vibrant shade of chartreuse. Committing firmly to just one hue, proclaiming one sliver of the rainbow as your be-all and end-all, seems suffocating, not liberating.But despite our love for variety, and our appreciation of the vast range the colour spectrum has to offer, deep down, we’ve all still got a hue that’s closer to our hearts than others. For me, that’s sunshine yellow: sunny, playful and bright. Though the walls in my home are a crisp white, and my wardrobe favours greys and blues, whenever I spot yellow anything—sofas, throw pillows, cardigans—my head can’t help but turn. And it’s been turning a lot lately: summer is coming, and bold colours are trickling into shops, including plenty of pieces decked out in not-so-mellow yellow.Here, find a few of our favourite styles that celebrate (I’m not ashamed to say it!) my favourite colour.

8 Sunshine-Yellow Home Decor Pieces to Brighten Up a Room

A yellow three-seater sofa may be beautiful, but that’s a big commitment to a trend. The Ekerö chair ($229) from Ikea, on the other hand, is a smaller investment for a standout seat.

The Iittala Kastehelmi footed bowl ($50) is covered in tiny glass droplets—fitting, as “kastehelmi” means “dewdrop” in Finnish.

Make your weekend getaways that much sweeter with this cheery Fjallraven Foldsack in Ochre ($120).

The minimalist Holmegaard Palet storage jar ($85) may be designed to hide away your goodies discretely, but it’s hard to take your eyes off the combination of yellow glass and warm oak.

Felix-Pillow-DWL84527. The Throw Pillow That Will Instantly Change Up Your Look

The DwellStudio Felix pillow ($89) combines two trends we love: sunshine yellow accent pieces (if that wasn’t clear already) and geometric patterns.
