The color yellow captures attention with its energy. This summer hue can be used in a variety of ways, from the small splash of color in an accessory to a roomful of yellow-painted walls.


Even amid all of the bright colors in this room from Everything Fabulous, the yellow in the flowers, the tabletop and the frames on the wall stands out and pulls my eyes throughout the room.

    yellow? It's the red or the white that is the focus in that photo. I didn't even notice the yellow until I looked for it.

    Instead of using yellow as an accent color, I've used a very pale,creamy yellow as my wall color. It's pale enough to be a good neutral backdrop in many of my rooms…..it's a little more cheerful than using the beige/brown tones that are so popular.

    I don't decorate with a lot of yellow, but right now a red ceramic vase full of golden sunflowers in a prominent spot add just a touch of that summery color to our great room (just like Ceejoy's avatar — hi Ceejoy!).
