The yellow tile in the Room of the Week stopped me in my tracks when I first saw the photo. My initial reaction was awe…it’s bold and bright especially against the rough concrete and tile. And, my next thought was that I could NEVER have yellow tile in my own house…too bright…too bold.
Why do I love it here so much though?
- The setting…the house is in Mexico, where bold and bright colors in interiors are perfectly normal. The yellow fits right in.
- The abundance of natural light in the room makes it possible to use a bold bright color. If the room were dark the sunny yellow would feel garish instead.
- There are plenty of dark colors to balance it out. The contrast helps tone down the bright and lighten up the dark.
I pinned a TON of yellow tiled kitchens on my Tile Pinterest Board Here…so you can see some great examples of yellow tile in a variety of stylish kitchens.
And,if you are want to add a little yellow tile of your own…here are a few of my favorites:
Too bright…too bold…or just the right amount of sunny?
