Color Feast: The Way To Use Yellow in the Dining Room
Seeking to liven up your dining room? Think about a palette that includes a generous helping of yellowish. Perhaps because it reminds us lazy, sunshine-filled days, yellowish makes us joyful. It’s the colour of warmth and optimism, excellent for the room in which you gather to eat and converse with people you care about most.

Yellow runs the gamut from fresh into deep orangey golds. A paler, toned-down yellowish is a great neutral colour that plays nicely with all other colors. Bold and vivid yellows often stand on their own and are best paired with softer, encouraging neutral hues.
To help turn you on to this uplifting colour, I’ve assembled together eight yummy yellow dining rooms together with my high yellow paint picks.
A little yellow goes a long way, so make certain to sample your preferred colour — particularly when opting for a brighter yellow — to make sure a large swath of it on your wall will not wind up being too intense for you.

My favourite yellows have a fantastic bit of green in them, like the wall color shown here.
I call it “margarita yellowish,” and it’s the perfect colour for a modern dining room. I enjoy how this particular colour frames the view outside the window and then picks up on the yellow-greens in the landscaping.

Not into glowing, electrical yellows? Look to toned-down yellows reminiscent of shore sand or corn.
The walls here are a soothing, comforting yellowish that acts as a bridge between the brown-blacks and whites.
Most homeowners pick a colour for their walls but keep the ceiling white. I like to shake up this by doing the opposite. Give your dining room a soft glow with a warm butter yellow on the ceiling.

Live in a cold weather? Warm up your dining room with the colour of heat — a bold orange-yellow. However frightful the weather gets outside, you and your visitors will stay warm and comfy.

Bring the sun in with a warm yellow throughout your dining room. This is a superb way to soften up a room that has a lot of hard surfaces inside it.
Go for gold to get a classy dining room. Dark brown wood tones can sometimes look dull and heavy. This rich yellowish hue livens up the distance while keeping it classy.

If you have wood dining chairs that are structurally intact but may use more character, consider painting them a bold color, like the pure yellowish used here. This is an intense hue, but should you use it sparingly for a small punch of colour, it will not dominate the distance.
These dining chairs add a nice pop of light lemon into an otherwise neutral dining room. This particular hue looks supermodern paired with cool grays and crisp whites.
