Delightful, Delectable Yellow!

By Sharon Johnson


One can't help but be happy in a yellow room—there is just something about this particular spot on the color spectrum. Yellow is uplifting, stimulating, and just plain delightful, but not all yellows are created equal. Keep it bright to inspire feelings of optimism, creativity, and friendliness. Let the hue get too dark or muddy, and the mood can quickly turn anxious. Take your cues from top designers who bring out the best in this smile-inducing hue.

Cheeky Yellow

The designer's choice of wall color for this spirited home office is a happy middle ground between bright and neon. There will be no catnapping in front of the computer, as yellow of this intensity stimulates the brain and energizes the spirit. Painting the trim a warm white and keeping the wood floor unadorned helps offset the vibrancy of the walls and makes the room feel more welcoming.
