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!!

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

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