Depending on the amount of red or blue it contains, yellow can have many different color personalities, making decorating with yellow easy in any room.  A yellow that has a red undertone creates a warm and welcoming feeling, and are best used on larger pieces of furniture, such as the bed pictured, and walls.  A yellow that contains an undertone of blue has a cooler effect and should be used on small pieces of furniture, such as the end table pictured.  Buttery yellows, such as the upholstery pieces pictured, can really be used anywhere because they provide a neutral feeling in a room.  Experiment with different shades of yellow to see what works for you and your home!
