Do you like to keep one step ahead of the latest interior decor trends?
If your answer is yes then we recommend regularly visiting Pinterest’s Insights page. The company publish lots of useful data, including behavioural studies and measurement results. One example is search data. The company compare what we’re searching for today vs. this time last year. All of this behind-the-scenes information tells us what’s caught the eye of the platform’s users and helps us spot emerging trends.
This month, Pinterest noticed that we’re crushing over the colour yellow in our homes. Specifically, pastel shades.
“Pastel yellow is perking up interiors, with searches up 73% year over year.”
Planning a home makeover? Armed with this information, you can let your friends and family think you’re a trendsetter and use pastel yellow in your home before everybody else does.
Using pastel yellow in your home:
Pastel yellow is a lovely, versatile colour that’ll suit any room. Use your favourite shade to add a cheery splash of colour to your kitchen or living space. Or, choose it for a nursery or bedroom.
If you’re feeling bold, use pastel yellow liberally: paint your room’s four walls in the sunny shade. Not so sure? Keep your walls white and use pastel yellow as an accent colour throughout your accessories and furnishings.
