    Yellow and green is a safe and easy color scheme to use in any room in your home, especially bedrooms. There are many ways to pair up these two shades together; one successful combination is to use yellow as your dominant color—wall paint color—with a secondary color of white or soft beige. The final touch would be to add accents of green through the addition of artwork, decorative pillows, or small pieces of furniture. A common practice is to use a piece of artwork or pattern as a guide for your color scheme. This lovely contemporary bedroom designed by Garrison Hullinger Interior Design Inc. has a color scheme that closely resembles the gorgeous piece of artwork above the bed.

    One color combination to consider is an analogous or harmonious color scheme. These types of color schemes are hues that are next to each other on the color wheel, such as yellow and green or orange and yellow. This color scheme can be extended to a range of three to four colors next to each other, such as this eclectic bedroom design by Sara Ingrassia Interiors. This fun bedroom uses orange, yellow, green, and blue to create a cohesive and trendy design. Yellow is the main color used in this bedroom with green and white as secondary colors, but the use of turquoise blue and splashes of red-orange give this bedroom the zing needed to create a complete and unique design.
