Some people love it. Some people hate it. I belong to the first camp.
It's the color of daffodils and bananas, smiley faces, forsythia, sunshine, ears of ripe corn, lemons, the brick road to the Emerald City, butter, and the accent wall in my little boys' bedroom.

We've lived in this place for going on six years. I love color and even though we aren't supposed to paint the walls colors I decided one accent wall in yellow (Behr "Pismo Dunes", to be exact) wouldn't be too overwhelming to paint over when/if we ever move.

See? Look at the big blank space. Won't that be great for some frames for the boys' art?
This is an interior room in our townhouse. It doesn't have any windows which is kind of a bummer usually (and which made it hard to photograph the colors accurately) but it also serves as our tornado shelter when there are storms in the area. I think the lack of natural light can tend to make it seem a little like a gloomy cave, but the yellow counteracts that nicely. It makes me happy to look at it.
