Yellow Aesthetic Home Decor That Will Brighten Your Space

September 11, 2019

There is just something about a sunny, yellow aesthetic in the home. Bright yellow home decor brings a fresh, happy energy into your space. And who couldn’t use a little more of that in their lives?

If you’ve been considering curating a yellow aesthetic, we feel you.

Even science says that having a yellow aesthetic has some mental health benefits. According to Color Psychology, yellow is the most vibrant color visible to the naked human eye. Its brightness tends to have “an influence on the left side of our brain, where deep thinking and perception dwells.”

So in a world where millennials and gen Z-ers are reporting higher and higher amounts of anxiety and depression, a yellow aesthetic makes sense.

Here are some of our favorite yellow aesthetic decor pieces to add a dollop of sunshine into your life.

Crosley Deluxe Bluetooth Portable 3-Speed Turntable

Amazon

How adorable is this suitcase record player? Crosley’s turntable (in the vibrant shade “Sulphur”) has Bluetooth speakers, so you can stream from your phone if you don’t feeling like busting out the old records.

True Zoo Planter In Yellow

Succulents make an excellent addition to any color aesthetic, but they especially pop in this adorable yellow planter. Doesn’t it look like a cute pineapple with the succulent leaves poking out?
