SUNSHINE DAYS

Few people are indifferent to yellow—it’s a shade you either love or don’t. For those who are fans, it lends a cheery air to any space. Lighter hues like butter and corn silk serve well on walls, especially blended with neutrals, golds, browns, and grays. Stronger versions, like school bus yellow, are best used in small doses as they can overwhelm in a hurry. In this dining room (below), a duo of yellow pillows provides just the right punch of stylish flair.
