Make a remarkable first impression with a front door that'll leave your guests smiling. The school-bus-yellow front door bursts off the pristine white walls and is the perfect welcoming touch.

Coming Up Blooms

A favorite color pairing — gray and yellow — combine for this eclectically feminine dining room. The same oversized floral print is used for the wallpaper and Roman shades, creating an almost never-ending expanse of pattern.

Caution: Bright Yellow Ahead

This daring shade of yellow is allowed to be the color star of the room. (What could possibly compete with it?) Clean white walls and natural wood work together to create a balanced backdrop to this contemporary dining room. The diamond-patterned rug grounds the room in muted jewel tones, and the bold yellow curtains ensure the sun is always shining whether they're drawn or not.
