Color Code: It's Easy Being Green
How to use green and yellow:
1. Mixing patterns is surprisingly easy: Prints, geometrics, and stripes are all fair game if the yellow or green tones look good together.
2. Not into painting? Designer Tobi Fairley, who did the room above, adds color by covering 20 percent of the room in bright accents like chairs, curtains, and clusters of knickknacks.
3. Dark floors balance out a sunny yellow space. For green, anything goes--including a white rug!
Balance it out: Fairley used an equal number of green pieces on each side of this room.
Green and yellow room inspiration:
For a subtle (but not boring!) effect, choose a yellow with a slightly beige undertone.
