Gold, Butter, Cream

A not-too-scary step up from beige, this bathed-in-sunshine palette is cheerful, warm, and comforting. We’re drawn to yellow because it’s a happy color. But, says Ashcraft, “golden tones are easier to work with than lemony tones, which can be too intense and have a ‘highlighter’ effect.” With a “suite” of closely related shades—from the ceiling to the rich wood floor—you create an enveloping atmosphere. “Entering this room, you walk into yellow,” says Ashcraft. Paint: walls, Marblehead Gold; ceiling, Weston Flax; trim, White Chocolate: each from $36 a gallon, benjaminmoore.com for stores.
