If there’s one color that radiates happiness, joy, and light, it’s yellow. But not many people use yellow in their decor. Here at DecorTips, we love yellow because, on top of everything that it transmits, it fills rooms with light. If you have a small, poorly lit room, yellow can be a great solution.

In our next example, we have a yellow shelving unit that delivers the spark that was missing from this living room. In addition, it’s very practical because you can use it to store many objects.

If you’ve already decorated your living room but still feel like it needs a spark of energy, use a yellow shelf to pull everything together. Just keep in mind that you shouldn’t use it to hold any object that’s too flamboyant or eye-catching. Let the shelves be the star of the room’s decor.
