8 magical yellow rooms

Hi, I'm Susi from the Arcadian Lighting blog, which focuses on light fixtures and decorating trends. I love getting to visit design blogs around the world so I'm very happy to be here at ledame to do a guest post on yellow rooms.  I love yellow in decorating in small or big doses.  Here are 8 magical yellow rooms that show a little or a lot of yellow is a great choice for any room in your home.  Enjoy!
Yellow Rooms
Love this living room's magical yellow palette with layers of yellow color balanced with white accents.  Pops of green give this living room a spring feeling... all year round.
Yellow Rooms
Yellow walls and colorful accents make for a magical combination in this living room.  White furniture let's you swamp out accent colors as your mood or the season changes.
Yellow Rooms
Yellow is a happy color for a bath or powder room. Love the cheerful yellow and white wallpaper in this powder room. Great color for a windowless room or a small space.
Yellow Rooms
Yellow fabric can turn a blah white room into something magical.  Add yellow to curtains, pillows and rugs if you have neutral walls. The unexpected lighting fixtures add a finishing touch.
Yellow Rooms
The yellow headboard in this bedroom is magical. Love the shape.† Yellow accessories and fabric add additional yellow accents and the lamp brings a healthy glow to the room.
Yellow Rooms
Soft yellow is a warm color that can magically change throughout the day as the light changes. It makes for a cozy color at night and a cheerful color in the morning.
Yellow Rooms
Bold floral artwork, highlighted by recessed ceiling lights, sets the color for this magical yellow bedroom. Love the yellow throw and yellow table lamp that tie in with the painting. So much great color!
Yellow Rooms
Yellow wallpaper in a toile pattern is unexpected in the kitchen. It adds a bit of yellow magic to the space along with yellow accessories and a wall clock.
