Paint Color Portfolio: Sunny Yellow
Living Rooms

Warm, stimulating colors work well in the social areas of a home. And what could be warmer than a bright, sunny yellow? The mind may wander to school buses and Big Bird, but there's a lot more to these bold, vivid hues. And when pulled off right, they can have a wonderful energizing effect on a room: from rich, glowing gold to punchy, acidic citrus, we've rounded up a selection of vibrant yellows guaranteed to inspire a smile.
