Whether color or wallpaper depends on the nature of the wall and your ideas. If you only want to add a subtle, colorful accent, it makes sense to paint only one wall in the room with wall paint.

Combine yellow color
If you want to make your rooms friendlier and brighter, this color is wonderful. The color palette ranges from pale yellow to strong lemon yellow or almost brownish gold. To integrate the color as harmoniously as possible, it is best to combine it with wood, brown, green and blue tones.
