Yellow seems to be the perfect accent color in this mid-century style living space. The color pops against the bright white armchair. Besides the yellow, the white brightens up the room just enough against the dark wood floors and furniture. Using bright colors against a dark backdrop is quite a classic style that is still very popular today, especially in luxury homes. Take some time to go through our Pinterest boards and you will see many photos that feature dark wood and light colors that accentuate the space.
