How To Create Beautiful Yellow Rooms

I remember the first yellow room I ever saw was when I was a freshman in high school. It belonged to a family friend and had been designed by Carlton Varney. I was sold on yellow interiors from that moment on! Years later when I had the privilege of meeting Mr.Varney, I told him what an impact that yellow room had on a young girl with decorating in her blood.

Nothing gives a room an infusion of life quite like yellow, offering sunny appeal in each of its many variations. I invite you to browse these ideas for decorating with yellow, the color of flowers, of lemons, and all things fresh!!

A wonderful mix of yellow Thibaut prints.

Yellow and pink are wonderful together when done right. And nobody does it better than Mario Buatta.

I simply love yellow sofas. It's like being engulfed in sunshine.

Yellow is a wonderful color to use in your vintage French style rooms.

Yellow is a popular wall color for English interiors.

The yellow sunroom of the Kentucky Governor's Mansion. Yellow is almost a neutral that works well with a variety of other colors.

Yellow has the capacity to make a room formal and elegant but still produce an inviting aspect.

Yellow and aqua is a lovely combination.

Shades of yellow range from butter, to vivid sunflower, to goldenrod. You can't go wrong with nature's palette.

The fabric selection makes this yellow dining room casually elegant. Yellow buffalo checks always add a sunny touch to a room.

The gold, yellow, coral, green color palette of this room takes it's cue from the Aubusson rug.

Yellow lends itself well to interiors with exotic flavor.

This is one of my favorite yellow rooms. The hand painted walls, antiques, and wonderful mix of checked fabrics make it a delightful space!

Now this is my kind of space and the fact that it is done in yellow is all the more pleasant. Green and hot pink are great accent colors for yellow walls.

You have to admit, the color yellow can produce some cheerful interior spaces.
