Color Feast: When to Use Yellow in the Dining Room

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Color Feast: When to Use Yellow in the Dining Room
Yellow runs the gamut from fresh, light greenish-yellows to rich, deep orangey golds. A paler, toned-down yellow is a great neutral hue that plays well with all other colors. Bold and bright yellows tend to stand on their own and are best paired with softer, supporting neutral hues. To help turn you on to this uplifting hue, I've gathered together eight tasty yellow dining rooms along with my top yellow paint picks. A little yellow goes a long way, so be sure to sample your chosen color — especially if going for a brighter yellow — to make sure a large swath of it on your wall won't end up being too intense for you.Yellow paint picks for dining rooms (clockwise from top left): 1.
