It’s time to soak up some yummy yellow living room ideas. Yellow is such an uplifting colour, reminding us of our favourite things … sunshine, daffodils, buttercups, primroses and lemons. Get set to bring that sunniness into your home this season. There are plenty of yellow sofas and home accessories on the market. You can go totally yellow with big statement pieces or add a bright lampshade or vase to perk up your space. Yellow in your lounge can also be dramatic when paired with dark greys or blues. So you can try the mellow yellow vibe, go all cheerful and chic or be a drama queen! Check out my yellow living room ideas to see which way you’ll go.

Or perhaps you might prefer the Chelsea Fixed Back Sofa instead. It has been upholstered in this amazing yellow velvet fabric but you also have a choice of plenty more textures and colours. The shape has been inspired by traditional Victorian settees but with a contemporary update. It’s super comfy thanks to the individual high density plumped up seat cushions and extra deep backrest. The base is fully coiled sprung. Those springs actually move independently so you get a gently enveloping feeling around your body (sounds amazing). The arms feature pleating detailing which is a nice touch and the legs are elegantly tapered. You can buy this sofa in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes – £1670 starting price from Delcor / no product code listed.
