In the post about yellow home decor, KBM D3signs focuses on decorating living room spaces with yellow throw pillows augmented with African art prints by Tilly Willis.
Pillow hues and patterns aim to meet color, shading, and ductus prevalent in the art print.
Why choose yellow home decor?
First thought associations upon hearing the word yellow are warmth, sun, summer, and a happy emoji smiley face. Despite vivid emotional reactions to the hue yellow ranks in the Yougov survey on the lower end of the favorite colors.
Nonetheless, yellow as the brightest color of the visible spectrum can stimulate a friendly, energetic, communicative, and joyous environment. That makes it a great color to accent with for any living room.
Who is Tilly Willis?
Born and raised in Somerset in the South-West of England, Tilly Willis still resides there. Her family of artists nurtured in her an interest in art. Like this, it came naturally to study at the Somerset College of Art to set the foundation. After completion, she went on to study Fine Art at The Byam Shaw in London.
Under the series – Art Meets Pillows – the Huia Dreams art print by Ellen Giggenbach is complemented by two pillows. One pillow in orange and the second in yellow. In both cases, the throw pillows display the pixel pattern.
The pillow surface pattern mirrors overlaying shapes that distinguish shades of yellow only to merge into a square.
Ellen Giggenbach, a New Zealand artist, however, uses this technique with more complexity.
She states explicitly in her own words: “Each design starts its life as an idea only. Piece by piece, it grows like a puzzle till even one more element would upset a carefully crafted balance of shape and color.”
Mangaweka art print by Robin White has the focus in Art Meets Pillows.
The painting, Mangaweka, is from 1973 and shows a teal-colored truck parking in front of a wooden building with yellow panels between green frames. Fringing the road, the building’s pedestrian cover separates the artwork into two halves. The ground floor is strictly oriented towards the street, while green hills and clear blue sky envelop the second level.
Born in 1946, Dame Robin White studied Fine Art in Auckland and is one of New Zealand’s most important printmakers.
Art Meet Pillows picked up on the rural atmosphere and on the dominant yellow and green color. With this, a wooden framed armchair shows a green and yellow pillow decor. Apart from the coloration the pillows too pick up on the wooden plank texture in their stripes and checker pattern.
