To me, yellow is one of those colors that is best paired with neutrals. It looks smashing with aqua and regal with purple, but overall, I much prefer it with creamy shades of white, chocolates and my all time favorite, gray. Of course, some can only handle yellow in small doses (such as myself).
It is an excellent color for spring or summer, but in those dreary fall and winter months, there is no better color to infuse a bit of warmth and cheer in your home. It is also an excellent gender neutral color. It softens a masculine overly dark room and minimizes too much girlishness in a home. (Well some rooms like Betsey Johnson's Pink Apartment cannot be manned up no matter how much yellow you put in there! (still love the room though!...)

I do feel that some of these rooms would give me a headache after all, but many are so wonderful I may just use some for inspiration of my own. one more thing for, yellow paint... ALWAYS use several test swatches first to find that nice and serene shade... I cannot tell you how many paint nightmares I have had choosing the way wrong color yellow for a wall that screams the sun just threw up a horrid shade of neon.
