Temple chose to universally employ a mid-tone yellow on all of her studio walls, which can be difficult to live with everyday since a studio apartment offers no escape. The wrong tone of yellow can have the ability to reflect an unflattering hue on people and can make things seem a bit duller than they actually are. To successfully go down this road, a better strategy would have been to pick a warm pale/butter yellow for the walls that almost read neutral and accent it with several stronger, bolder yellows in pillows, drapery, rugs, artwork and bedding.
