There’s no escaping the persistent cheeriness of yellow. Back in December, when Pantone announced that Illuminating, a bright, buttercup yellow was one of its fêted Colours of the Year for 2021, the hope and happiness that the hue evoked seemed somewhat misplaced (which could explain why Pantone hedged its bets and announced not one but two 2021 colours, pairing the yellow with the decidedly more muted Ultimate Gray).

But now, with things opening up and a sense of optimism in the air, it seems we’re ready for some sunshine shades and they’re cropping up everywhere. Dubbed one of New York Fashion Week’s biggest colour trends, fashion’s obsession with yellow is definitely rubbing off on homewares and there’s a shade for every style, from muted mustards to acid neons and sweet pastels.
