Roundup: Sunny Yellow Walls

Right now, it's gray outside our window, so we thought we'd look indoors for some color. Yellow is one of our favorite hues for a kitchen or a sunroom. The trick is to...

... avoid those dull yellow tones that don't reflect light (you know, the dirty yellowish off-white that you often see in rental apartments that haven't been painted in a few years) and go for a yellow that's a little bit brighter. Even pale yellows can have a bright, lemony undertone. For general tips on choosing paint colors, click here.
