Cheerful and energizing, the right shade of yellow has the ability to bring warmth to any room. An eternally optimistic hue, yellow also enhances and maximizes the impact of natural light, infusing a space with positive energy. Called “a color of optimism” by paint manufacturer Benjamin Moore and declared “color of the year” in 2009 by world-renown color authority Pantone, yellow is a proven mood-booster, whether it’s a muted pale butter or bold lemon zest.
A simple off-white armoire is perfect for a casual living room. Customize the piece with paint, cool hardware, or by changing out the doors.
