Yellow is undoubtedly a smile raiser. It's bright, cheerful and indicative of a good mood. However, it can be difficult to pull off when decorating. The key is probably to keep it pretty simple, co-ordinate with stylish furnishings and just add pops of other colours for a bright contrast. It looks great teamed with white furniture and woodwork to accentuate the freshness of the colour. If you don't fancy yellow walls, try using it as the accent colour, in soft furnishings or on a dramatic, quirky piece of furniture such as the bright yellow bed you can see in one of the images below.
