Blue and yellow accents build a cheerful and inviting presence in a home decor scheme, making bright contrast and colourful explosions that will lift the most neutral of backgrounds. This is particularly prevalent in decor schemes with a light background, daylight filled and lighthearted in nature. However the blue and yellow theme works equally well as a muted palette at the darker end of the spectrum too. To demonstrate each side of the scale, we’ve found two of our favourite examples of the blue and yellow interior trend: Will you be drawn to the magnetic light personality of bright interior number one, or will it be seductively shaded interior number two?

Our first blue and yellow apartment interior is located in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. A background paint of palest grey sets a light yet calming atmosphere, which balances out the intensity of the brighter coloured elements in the room. A primary yellow cushion shines against a duck egg and dove lounge chair at one end of the furniture arrangement. Blue patterned cushions colour a grey modern sofa, and the window seat is an amalgamation of prussian blue and sunflower pieces.
A red planter creates even more contrast next to the blue and yellow window seat design, and a solid yellow window shade.
TV wall storage has been finished in the same pale grey finish as the walls so that the plentiful cupboards blend in rather than stand out–though the TV mount space has been painted in a darker shade of grey to create depth.
Wall art pulls all of the accent colours together. A small red stool balances out the red planter on the other side of the room.
An industrial style floor lamp makes a chunky and eye-catching addition behind the sofa; it also visually balances the darkness and height of the TV opposite.
Herringbone wood flooring flows through the entire living room dining room combo, giving the grey based room a warm undercurrent.
Prussian blue dining chairs encircle a wood dining table.
The round dining table has a surprising yellow base, which seems to raise the spirit as well as the tabletop.
There is a hobby centre in the room that is decorated with a colourful surfboard, a piano station, and built in bookshelves.
This single space tells a story about the homeowner.
Artwork nods to the car loving aspect of the homeowners personality, and a hanukiah illustrates faith.
Around the corner, a blue L-shaped kitchen is blessed with plentiful sunlight. Yellow bar stools stand like bright chess pieces at a central wood wrapped kitchen island.
A wood linear suspension light beautifully matches the kitchen island island below it.
Pale grey countertops and backsplashes meld with the walls.
A second red floor vase towers in the hallway.
Chequerboard tiles pattern the entryway floor, olive green paint colours the walls, and yellow accents steal the limelight.
The master bedroom has a relaxing vibe. Duck egg and white polka dot wallpaper wraps the room, behind a dark blue headboard and a black swing arm wall lamp.
Mix and match bedside cabinets flank the platform bed, with a chevron effect piece on one side, and a solid yellow unit on the other.
A bumblebee yellow ladder shelf creates buzz on the opposite side of the room.
A floating wall unit brings in one final yellow accent, and provides a place to display artwork in a refreshing change to the usual TV situation.
Textured glass builds a glass wall wardrobe.
Stunning cobalt tiles scatter geometric pattern across a small bathroom, behind a set of wood accented bathroom vanity lights.
The main bathroom is a black, white, yellow and wood tone triumph.
Monochrome tiles make a feature of the floor.

Our second apartment interior has a much darker vibe, weighted with many solid black elements and fixtures.
A muted yellow pouf sits across from a plush blue couch.
The mellow round pouf is a design echo of circular gold handles along a wall of black storage units.
A pale grey area rug holds the contrasting coloured lounge furniture pieces together.
Deep stained wood flooring bridges the tonal gap between golden yellow elements and stark black decor.
The modern coffee table brushes a flash of gold into the centre of the room.
A large custom cut mirror in the home entryway makes the space appear double its size.
Marble cladding sends smoky swirls around a modern fireplace.
Black kitchen cabinets blend into the dark backdrop of the room, but a golden backsplash richly marks out the kitchen perimeter.
The white Gubi Beetle chair has been selected to offset the dark background. A modern dining room chandelier combines the decor notes of black, white and woodtone. A breakfast bar has been fashioned across the kitchen windows, so that the homeowner can take in the view over coffee.
Simple spotlights spill down flat black surfaces.
Recesses at either side of the TV wall hold speakers and bookshelves.
Wine storage grows at one end of the dining room.
A home workspace nestles in a corner window. A black vertical radiator acts as a subtle divider of zones.
A black vase decorates the black dining table.
In the home entryway, light plays over the deep texture of slatted walls. The frameless wall mirror doubles up the effect of a modern yellow bench seat, and a marble based entryway table by the front door.
