Creating Bounce With Blue and Yellow Accent Decor
Clashing blue and yellow accents creates bounce in modern interiors, whether the tones used are bright or subdued. These three home designs explore the spectrum of this trend with a bunch of other design tricks thrown in to create a unique spin. Our first tour is an example of how to effectively subdue summery hues without losing any of the punch. Next, we observe a deeper part of the spectrum with a teaming of mustard and prussian blue, shook up with energetic black and white elements. Finally, we finish off with an upmarket studio apartment that employs golden elements to build undeniable luxe around plush blue and sunflower infusions.

Blue and yellow accents help divide up the tight layout of this 85 square metre apartment in St. Petersburg, Russia. Punchy yellow dining chairs clearly mark out the dining area that pushes right up against the sofa.
Even the coffee table book dashes in a spot of yellow.
Colour is stripped out of the L-shaped kitchen, which features only crisp white and wood tone cabinets with a stark concrete backsplash.
A colourful entryway bench crosses a full length hallway mirror, which doubles its bright contribution.
In the bedroom, the platform bed adds an infusion of plum into the cool grey scheme.
The other bedside table lamp rests on a modern side table to ring the changes. A custom cut floor to ceiling mirror makes a bigger feature of the small piece.
In the kid’s room, blue and yellow accents prevail but this time alongside soft apple green elements. A cute kids’ bed underlines a mountain mural and an enchanting bear wall sticker.
A blue bean bag makes a comfy reading spot in the kid’s study area.

In our next home interior, mustard and pale prussian blue present a different vibe from the first home entirely. A black and white area rug shakes up the seriousness of the palette.
A coffee table with storage places a grounding wooden accent onto the busy monochrome rug design.
The circular coffee table links in with a shape based wall mural behind the modern sofa.
The black frame of the unusual yellow accent chair pulls it in nicely with the rug design.
Shuffling along to the back of the living room we find a unique kitchen diner with a bold floor tile. A black linear chandelier complements the monochrome flooring.
A similar yellow headboard feature is painted onto the wall in the kid’s bedroom too, this time teamed with a blue-grey counterpart. 3D kids’ wall decor adds more fun colourful touches.
A huge modern chandelier explodes gold stems over the entire width of the lounge.
An eye catching dining chandelier holds the eating area in place in the open studio layout.
A curtain is drawn across the bedroom side of the room at night to make the atmosphere a little cosier, or to allow one partner to sleep whilst the other burns the midnight oils. Plush blue and sunflower accent pillows bring colour to the bed, tying it to the colour scheme set by sofa in the lounge.
