Yellow for Happiness

We love the versatility and cheerful qualities of the color yellow. You can use it in combination with wood furnishings to bring rustic, whimsical charm or with muted tones for a beach inspired feel.

Bright and Cheerful

Bright, bold yellow accents can make any room feel happier, therefore making you feel happier as soon as you enter the space. Sunflowers are classic options for adding a splash of sunshine to your current style as they range from rustic goldenrod to bright golden yellow in color. The Round Sunflower Indoor/Outdoor Rug offers a bright option for accenting any floor or deck space. The Pottery Utensil Holder in dijon adds a vibrant accent to your country kitchen or dining room, and our Apothecary Quilt in butter color brings warmth to your bedroom.

Muted Tones for Rustic Charm

Goldenrod and mustard are two colors you will almost always find here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. On everything from furniture to curtain collections, muted yellow hues bring rustic sensations that are welcome in any country home. This Cottage Cupboard is a convenient storage solution, organizing your belongings in a pantry or bedroom while adding decorative charm to your country home furnishings. The Calico Crow Textiles Collection coordinates an entire room in simple, easy-going primitive style. It is easy to see how the Jelly Hutch Cabinet Set, in a rich mustard finish, brings convenient and easy-to-access storage to a pantry, dining room or country kitchen.

Brighten Up

Just like the big round ball of light in our blue sky, you can easily add bright light to any room to evoke pleasant sensations. Our timeless Sturbridge Lantern Lamps offer dual lighting options and the brass color enhances the warmth of any room. Pair with dark wood furniture for a rich feel or with lighter pine furnishings for a relaxed space. The Lily Lamp shown here offers a sunny yellow glow that fades into a beautiful green for an added complement in a family room or den. For a more subtle yellow, our gold Sterling Pillow brings this comforting color into your home without overdoing it.
