From a daffodil staircase in a moody farmhouse to a taxi yellow–tinged front room, designers appear to be in a frenzy to seek out—and spec—one of the best yellow paint. A surge of product collaborations, eye-catching residence excursions, and appearances in a handful of color-of-the-year schemes all make the case: In 2022, yellow is in. Though the assertion shade has turn out to be a pièce de résistance in lots of an inside, swathing a room in a canary hue is arguably much less standard than, say, a soothing blue or of-the-moment pink. Despite its sunny disposition, selecting the fallacious shade—and even utilizing an excessive amount of of the suitable one—will be cloying, blinding, or simply plain an excessive amount of. The secret? Finding the best undertones to match a room’s measurement and pure gentle.
Ready to embrace the colour your self? AD PRO requested seven designers about one of the best yellow paint choices—listed below are those they really feel deserve the highlight.
Funky Yellow by Sherwin-Williams
“This yellow has so much depth. It seems a little, well, funky at first, but it’s the kind of color that changes in the light. It has a little bit of a green undertone, but it’s still warm and is great for kids’ rooms. Yellow fades easily, so it’s better to start more saturated!” —Jessica Davis, Atelier Davis
Goldfield by Benjamin Moore
“Our favorite go to yellow is Goldfield from Benjamin Moore. It is the perfect sunshine yellow that is not too strong or too saturated, and has a lovely softness to it. We recently used this color for our entry and kitchen ceiling in the Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House. We had a rainbow of colors in our spaces and this yellow worked beautifully with every shade we put next to it.” —Catherine M. Austin, Catherine M. Austin Interior Design
Beeswax by Domingue Finishes
“Hadley Wiggins had the most beautiful range of fabrics that steered us to this lovely yellow. It’s a color that I developed for Domingue Finishes. Called Beeswax, it’s a limewash paint and it just glows when the sun hits it. It seemed like the perfect choice for this small, waterfront bedroom.” —Eve Ashcraft
French Quarter Gold by Benjamin Moore
“I love this shade of yellow. It’s a rich, glowy hue, and its earthy green undertone adds complexity to the color, which changes as the sun moves throughout the day. It’s not a color we typically associate with bedrooms, but waking up into a room this color feels like being greeted with a morning person’s smile each day.” —Noz Nozawa, Noz Design
India Yellow by Farrow & Ball
“We love this striking, punchy yellow as the deep mustard tones give it an earthiness, making it a fitting color for both town and country homes. To create an immersive experience in a small room, we used India Yellow in full gloss on the ceiling and below the dado rail to let light bounce playfully around the space.” —Katie Glaister, Okay&H Design
Babouche by Farrow & Ball
“I see yellow as a neutral—it literally goes with jewel tones of all shades, browns, blacks, and primaries. I even like yellow with pastels. Yellow is happiness in a color, for sure.” —Katie Rosenfeld, Katie Rosenfeld and Company
Curry by C2 Paint
“I love the shade Curry by C2. It has a saffron, henna quality that makes it feel old-world even though its saturation is robust. It adds color, depth, and warmth to a space without it feeling bright or chaotic, and it plays well with a lot of different colors. Although it has a lot of personality, it reads somewhat neutral, making you feel warm and ensconced, which is why we often use it in a jewel box manner.” —Zoe Feldman, Zoe Feldman Design
