April 2022 - Butter Yellow 

April is here, which means spring is in full swing! We’re easing into the warmer weather and heading outside a little more often, which is a welcome change after a long winter. Naturally, our energy starts to pick up and we’re looking to bring that shiny, happy feeling into every part of our day. The emotion behind our theme for April is “lively,” inspired by the energy that spring always seems to bring us. Say hello to our “lively” color for April: Butter Yellow! 

Yellow symbolizes joy, sunshine, and warmth. In other words, it’s a color that gives us all the spring feels. Butter yellow is a lighter version of a classic yellow, which gives it a more subtle feel that still gives you that fun energy but is still a soothing color. It goes well with classic neutrals like crisp white, soft gray, and natural wood tones. If you’re looking for something a bit more bold and fun, pair it with other pastel shades of pink, or a pretty robin’s egg blue. 

This soft shade of yellow is still bright, but also soft enough to work well as an allover wall color. It’s a look that’s simple and classic, especially when paired with simple white trim accents. If you’re after a bolder look, you can use Butter Yellow as your neutral wall color and go with something bright like blue as your accent wall. It’s a gorgeous shade that serves as a pretty backdrop for more colorful accent pieces. 

 

A yellow room will instantly make you feel light and happy at any time of year. In terms of decor, yellow works best in spaces where people socialize, or require focus, like a living room, dining room, kitchen, or home office. Soft yellow can work well in bedrooms and bathrooms, but since yellow can make you more alert it isn’t always the best option for those spaces. 

Butter Yellow also works well on the outside of your home too! It’s a bright and sunny shade that will make your home stand out without being too overpowering. Again, keep it simple with crisp white trim and go for a bright contrasting accent with a colorful front door for a look that is classic with a modern twist.
