Yellow interior paint colors

Cozy up with these hues drenched in a summer color palette with hints of nature. If you are planning to paint a room unfamiliar with daylight, these tones might make all the difference, according to designer Sara Tuttle: "Not all colors can warm up a room that doesn't get a ton of natural light like these yellows can, " she says.

But don't let its summery inspiration fool you. "Yellow is beautiful because it's seasonless, " Tuttle says. "It sets the tone for a warm, cozy room."

Buttercream Yellow Paint Colors

With colors so delicious you could eat them, the lighter end of the yellow color spectrum tends to be for anyone looking for a color that won’t overpower. “Stay really pale on the walls so the yellow gives the room more of an overall feeling than a statement, ” says designer Sara Gilbane.

Maple Gold Yellow Paint Colors

Go to the richer side of yellow with these maple gold hues. Golden yellows are classic, fresh, and cozy. But they're also one of the trickiest colors to get right, says New York City designer Marlaina Teich. She says to use a pillow, area rug - anything that will be in the finished room - to home in on your paint choice. If a hue doesn't coordinate with the item, move on.

Perk Up with Yellow

If you have a room that needs a little life, try yellow. Watch and learn some of our favorite ways to use this sunny hue.

Here Comes the Sun

Yellow on yellow on yellow! If that’s your dream, mix up the strength of the hue in the pieces and textures around the room to avoid the monochromatic doldrums. Plus, if your room comes equipped with any sort of view of the outside world, your wall color choice will shine. Yellow walls work best in a room with a lot of natural light, Gilbane says. Dark rooms can make yellow look dingy.

Cabinet Gold

Painting cupboards and cabinets can take a kitchen from blah to wow in a few coats of paint. Choose a fun color and commit it to a kitchen island or piece of furniture waiting to make a statement in your home - an idea that works especially well if using a neutral shade with just enough attitude.

Warming Trend

Wake up an all-white bathroom with a warm yellow hue. If you're matching a paint color to an existing feature, such as tile or an upholstered piece, resist matching colors perfectly. "It makes your room feel flat and one-dimensional, " says Sara Gilbane. "Go two shades lighter or darker."

Barely Yellow

Even the palest of yellows can brighten up a room. In this bedroom, yellow takes a step back and lets bright pastel hues shine. A crisp white on the walls may have caused the peppy hues to read as electric, rather than sweet, but the slightly yellow tinge ensures the room is sunny, not stark. When looking for the right yellow, it's important to pick the right base first.

Stay away from white-based yellows - they can turn out chalky and cold, Sara Tuttle says. Her rule of thumb: Stick with ocher and brown undertones.

How can I dye interior white paint. I have a 5 gallon can that was for ceilings.?


I am currently in the middle of decorating our flat and have been using crown. The finish is fantastic. Before this I bought the focus own brand and it is AWFUL. It is so thin I needed at least 3 coats on each door and even though it claimed to be non-drip and 'ran' everywhere. In the end I ended up sanding it down and re-doing the surfaces using the crown.
