Marigold Yellow Color Palette

Incredible on walls and equally impressive as an accent color, sunny marigold pairs beautifully with other colors from nature, such as raspberry pink and leafy green.

Solid Choice

This bright, contemporary kid's room receives a nice burst of color with marigold throw pillows and the eccentric floral- and revolver-print bedding. Castle-shaped headboards complete the whimsical design.

Here Comes the Sun

A patterned marigold throw pillow is the perfect sunny accent piece to break up a sea of gray and navy.

Gender Neutral

Stylish for boys and girls, a pop of yellow in a kids bedroom works wonders for creating a fun, inviting space. Here, marigold bedding is a bright addition to a gray twin bed, while the patterned area rug ties the whole room together.

Always in Style

The classic black-and-white kitchen may never go out of style, but this stunning space takes "timeless" to a whole new level. The dazzling stained-glass window offers a unique focal point and incredible color to an otherwise neutral space.

Accent Piece

Ideal as a bright accent color, marigold works brilliantly when paired with bold, colorful patterns like this playful floral ceiling.

Color Pop With a Purpose

Similar to a multifunctional ottoman in the living room, this gorgeous woven basket serves double duty as smart storage and a sunny secondary color that brightens the petite space.

Warm Up Your Palette

For a vibrant design that creates instant warmth in any room, try pairing marigold with other fiery hues, such as orange or red. 

Light Up the Room

While throw pillows, blankets and poufs are classic choices for incorporating bold color, don't overlook your lighting. This radiant pendant proves that marigold is a color star in any scenario.

Colorful Cabinet

To make a major color statement, give an all-white bathroom an exciting dose of color by painting the vanity in cheery marigold. Here, a repurposed dresser is the star of the bathroom. 

Nature Scene

To copy this look, give a tired chair an instant facelift by recovering it in trendy, colorful fabric. A mix of earthy greens, warm reds and of course, marigold, utilizes the best hues nature has to offer.

Go All Out

Are you marigold crazy? Think outside the subtle accent color and give your bedroom a marigold makeover. Here, a lovely yellow wall and throw are kept in check by subtle patterns and coordinating neutrals. 

Eclectic Extras

Feminine, fun and perfectly balanced between trendy and traditional, this colorful bedroom uses marigold to create a cheerful spot that is still calm and relaxing.

A More Mature Marigold

A deeper shade of marigold can add a sophisticated vibe without feeling stuffy. Try using this grown-up shade on an upholstered headboard for a colorful piece that still pairs well with most other colors.

Super Quick Switch

If you're looking for a way to introduce this sunny hue without going overboard, a patterned area rug may be your perfect fit, since it makes a big impact but can be easily changed as your style evolves.
