Do you love yellow, and the look of Global Style Design? Fill your home with your favorite color, and the rich colors, exotic designs, and hand-made works of art that bring the beauty of different cultures to life in your space. Varying shades of yellow and gold are used in Bohemian style and Modern Global styles.
Yellow is used in various shades and saturation levels in many different cultures. Warm shades of yellow are much loved in Indian-style designs. Yellows, particularly golden yellows are often found in Turkish rugs. Golden yellows are popular wall colors in Morocco. Bright lemon yellows to earthy golds are popular in Mexican-style design.
Throughout time, in many parts of the world, the color yellow has been regarded as the color of wisdom. It is optimistic and may help with concentration. It is energetic, bright, cheerful, playful, and carefree.
Yellow can create a sense of warmth and coziness, but be careful not to use too much. Some research has shown that too much of a good thing can make people lose their tempers more often and can make babies cry. Although I can see how a lot of crying babies could make people lose their temper more often too!
Use your judgment and consider how yellow makes you feel. Try soft yellow wall colors and save brighter yellows for accents, or use brighter yellows in smaller rooms to test it out.

You can go light or dark and dramatic.
This Bohemian Style Bedroom Edesign uses a light yellow wall color with yellow accents in the pillows and furniture, and yellow/gold accents in the rug, art and mirrors.
This Bohemian Style Living Room Edesign uses a light shade of yellow on the walls and touches of yellow in the accents and gold in the rug. Yellow accents harmonize with the more prevalent yellow/green accents in the pillows, art and dining chairs.
This Modern Global Style Living Room Edesign gets dramatic with a rich gold wall color and rug, often found in many global styles. This design uses a complimentary color palette, based on blue and yellow as its compliment on the color wheel.
Get the Look with Yellow Accents
Here is another version of the modern global style bedroom Edesign above where yellow is primarily used as an accent in the pillows and furniture, planter, and also in the brass accents.
