Contemplating an eye-opening hit of color in an otherwise quiet bedroom space? Lately we’ve been drawn to yellow throws, blankets, pillows (perhaps it’s the approach of winter?). Here are 10 spaces from our Image Gallery that demonstrate the mood-enhancing properties of yellow.

N.B.: One of the best ways to find palette inspiration on Remodelista is via our Image Gallery, a collection of more than 20,000 images sorted by room, style, color, and more.

Above: This Croatian bedroom by Steven Harris Architects makes use of a classic color combination: gray, yellow, and white. Check out other clean-lined designs in the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory Bedroom Roundup.
