If you’re a fashion fanatic, you’ll know the Gen Z shade of yellow was one of the hottest trends appearing on numerous catwalks, fashion lines and even the Met Gala last year.

Though its glorious time in the fashion world has already seemingly ended, that doesn’t necessarily mean this lemon-shade bright hue can’t be the next big thing in the home interior design world.

Celebrated as the colour of generation Z – people who were born during the mid-1990s to mid-2000s – Gen Z Yellow represents the bright and bold personalities of the youngsters of this era. The striking yellow shade also represents the rebellious character, provoking this unique glow in whoever sees or or wears it – remember Beyoncé in her music video Hold Up from her Lemonade album?

So this summer, instead of sticking to the classic schemes of black, beige, bright white or cream, accentuate your space with Gen Z Yellow for that eye-popping effect that will enliven your home with a cheerful and sunshine-like spirit. Here we’ve listed a few examples for you to see how you, too, can incorporate the lemon-y bright hue into your space, like a pro.
