HELLO
sunshine

Marianne Cotterill rounds up the best sunny interiors to put a spring in your step

There are so many positive words that describe yellow — joyous, creative, hopeful — who wouldn’t want to bring this into their home right now? Seeking its life-affirming warmth, I painted a bedroom sunflower yellow, contrary to perceived advice that it is an over-stimulating colour.

If you can’t face yellow on the walls, bring in small touches with accessories that will brighten any space (even a lava lamp that creates yellow shadows can lift the spirits) or a clutch of seasonal daffodils, which as Wordsworth noted
in ‘I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud’, never fail to bring joy on the gloomiest of days.
