Yellow is a colour that creates wow in an interior. It also adds sunny visual warmth and evokes feelings of spring-summertime happiness. This high energy effect makes it a great hue to use in any area of the home, but particularly for kids rooms. Despite the colours feel-good factor, its bright quality can at first seem a bit daunting when using in decor. Yellow is just yearning to be used though, so we have put together this collection of yellow kids’ rooms that show how to implement it to best effect, and how to combine yellow decor and home accessories with other colours to create entirely different looks and atmosphere.

Yellow and aqua decor promotes a happy summer vibe as it reminds us of sun, sand and tropical oceans. The random polka dots on this headboard feature wall add to the fun factor too. It can’t be fun 24-7 though, so a yellow desk chair sits at a white kids’ desk, equipped with a designer table lamp. | 19 |.
The work area inside this yellow room is marked out with a blue painted section. A grey table lamp adorns a white and woodtone desk and adjoining shelves. Some cute wall art pulls the two different coloured sections together. | 20 |.
The kids’ beds are a bespoke bunk bed design with storage drawers that run on beneath a tandem bench seat. The solid look of the dark blue and yellow bunk beds is lightened by a pale pink backdrop. | 11 |.
This yellow, pink and blue childs’ room has a water themed decor scheme. The yellow bed is reminiscent of a yellow submarine beneath the waves – and whales! Blue and white striped curtains add to the nautical theme. | 12 |.
Shared bedrooms for a boy and girl can be tricky. This one incorporates units of blue and pink to mark out ownership of desk chairs and beds, and is pulled together by gender neutral yellow and aqua decor. | 15 |.
This kids’ room decor scheme uses sage green, yellow and white in equal amounts to achieve the perfect balance of light and shade. Green window blinds match the unique twin platform bed. Below the window, desk chairs at a white double workspace have been tipped with a yellow crown. | 6 |.

Feature storage has been specially crafted for this yellow and blue kids’ room; fitted with a humorous selection of mismatched painted doors it looks as though peeled from the pages of a story book. A blue desk matches the main frame of the storage cupboard, whilst the kid’s chair matches a white cloud shaped mat. | 10 |.
The yellow elements in this kids’ bedroom have been put within a pale grey, white and light woodtone scheme. Here yellow is used as an accent rather than a dominating hue, though its brightness still does overrule the other relaxed tones. The headboard feature wall is covered in Swiss crosses, which create a quirky pattern on which to situate a pitched wood and yellow headboard and a dreamy thought bubble shaped wooden wall clock. | Visualizer: Len’s Decor.
