Yellow is known as the happiest, most cheerful color in the rainbow. It is said to promote energy and good health, making it a great color to have around. Decorating with it can be a challenge, though, as most people instantly go to the idea of a canary yellow like what you see on Big Bird, but that’s far from being all that yellow has to offer in interior decorating. In fact, it is very versatile coming in a range of tones from gold to butter cream. Some might assume it’s a juvenile color but it can actually be quite elegant if used correctly. And being gender-neutral, it is also a great option for settling those color wars between spouses.
