Yellow Interiors........Always Cheerful

No interior color can cheer you up quite like yellow. Whether you paint or paper your walls in it or accessorize with it, yellow is such a happy color, that if you will allow it to work it's magic, before you know it you'll be smiling again. I hope these images will brighten your day, and of course inspire you to use the color yellow in your home decor.

Now sit back, listen to ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE from the musical Spamalot, (SE SURE TO GIVE IT A MINUTE FOR THE SONG TO START) and enjoy the images.  

Yellow always  helps you look on the bright side !!!

Take a stroll under a lemon pergola.

In this room yellow becomes a neutral  that these pretty bright colors pop against.

Diane Burn

One of my very favorite designers. She always brings an Old World charm to her interiors with her use of murals and trompe l'oeil.

With the walls painted lemon yellow, this French Country kitchen oozes charm.

Think in terms of citrus and you won't go wrong when decorating a yellow room.

This is such a pretty color combination and the leopard chairs are perfect.

Muted orange and peach always looks pretty with yellow.  The use of grey anchors the room.

David Easton

The light wood of the beams and woodwork is perfect for this gorgeous room.

John Fowler

Yellow flowers are so cheerful, especially in a lovely pitcher like this one.

I love the way the yellow accessories "pop" in this room

This room demonstrates how the right plaid, checks, and stripes look beautiful when coordinated.

This residence with it's yellow painted stucco is very appealing!


or fancy, lemons are delightful when displayed in containers.

This is one of my own designs with yellow walls and an exotic flair.

Pretty accessories and a large wooden bowl of lemons make a great vignette.

I love the yellow doors in this fabulous room!

Blue and yellow....a wonderful color combination.

This wreath would look good on any door because yellow seems to compliments any color.

The yellow siding and white trim make this front porch so warm and cozy!

Yellow is the perfect accent in this great country kitchen. Try papering your ceiling!!

What is it about yellow striped awnings?

A great mix of patterns gives this room it's charm,

Breathtaking! What more can I say?

Yellow flowers will always make your house bright and cheerful!

You can almost smell the freshness in this kitchen! I think white glazed tiles and  lattice gives and overall crispness to a room.

If this space doesn't cheer you up nothing will!


  1. Sunflowers and lemons....perfect decoration for any room I think. A bientot Lisa.

  2. This is a beautiful post! I absolutely love the brightness that yellow brings in every space! Many greetings, jagoda

    1. Hello Jagoda, Thanks for visiting today and for your kind remarks. I was in the mood for something cheery! I do hope you will visit again. Blessings, Lisa

  3. Just found your blog and it is gorgeous! I will definitely be following your beautiful posts. Susan at Romancing the Home

    1. Greetings Susan, I am so glad you enjoyed the post and please do come back. I appreciate you visiting and your comment made my day. Thanks!!


    Oh my, what can I say but that it feels great to be reconnected in Blogland and to see what everyone is up to! LEMONS....I love to stuff a chicken with ONE lemon. Rub the bird with a little olive oil, rosemary and other spices if you wish, but put a whole lemon (prick holes with the tines of a fork) and bake for one hour at 350. TALK ABOUT THE BRIGHT SIDE, you will be smiling as you eat!

    I have missed your beautiful post but I had an out of town visitor for a week and I could not get to the computer. See you for the next post! Anita

    1. Greetings Anita, So glad you enjoyed spending time with your friend and that you are back! Seems like everybody I spoke to last week was struggling with issues in their lives so I thought trying to post something bright and cheery was in order. Your music always sets the stage for your stories or poetry so thought I would try to get them smiling right off the bat. Hope people will take the time to listen...that song always cheers me up! The chicken sounds wonderful. Can we anticipate a haute cuisine blog? Have a blessed week!!! Lisa
