How to successfully decorate with the color yellow

“Yellow is a very favorable vibration for mental or intellectual activity, as it promotes a clear state of mind. Yellow heightens your awareness and alleviates depression, sadness, or any kind of despondency. "                                                                           
                                    Tae Yun Kim 

One of the best colors to decorate with in my opinion is the color yellow.  There are so many ways to incorporate the yellow into your decorating scheme be it on the walls, as an accessory, an opulent window treatment or a piece of furniture like a couch or a wingback chair. 

Yellow is a neutral color that will blend into most interiors; it will actually enhance a room rather than overpower it, see examples below:

                             Striped yellow wallpaper and flower-patterned seating brings a light
                                                                and airy feeling to this living room
