Paint Color Ideas: 8 Uplifting Ways With Yellow and Green

After experiencing a peculiar weather phenomenon the other night that can best be described as “thunder-sleet,” I’m more than ready for spring to arrive. In fact, I’m already thinking of how I can pull my home from the darkness of winter and give it a happy makeover.

And there’s no better way to do that than with a dash of zesty colors. Two of my favorites are yellow and green. I love working with these hues — by themselves and in tandem — because they are just so incredibly versatile and uplifting. If you love bright colors, there are plenty of options with these two. On the other hand, if you favor softer, more muted colors, you’re also in good hands with this combo.

To help get your creative juices flowing, and hopefully lift you out of any winter doldrums, I’ve gathered eight enticing examples of yellow and green-hued interiors and exteriors, along with paint color palettes inspired by each image.
