Hi, Joanna here! I'm a guest blogger for Arcadian Lighting, an online source for gorgeous pendant lights, wall sconces, and light fixtures in a range of styles. I am passionate about all things interior design, and luckily, I get to collect and share design images and ideas on blogs such as Sarah Barksdale Design. Thanks for letting me share today, and please enjoy!

Yellow is such a happy color, I love it on walls, furniture and rugs. The rooms below show how lovely this bright hue looks when paired with a vintage elements such as furnishings and art. Which is your favorite look?

A retro eat-in kitchen boasts lemony yellow walls done up in a latticework pattern. The neutral colors at the floor anchor the room and keep it from being overly bright.

On the soft buttery side, this country dining room features vintage furniture linens and artwork.

A French kitchen is full of nostalgia with a yellow pot and a hand painted motif at the back of the vintage stove.

A yellow silk sofa graces a pretty pink room. A single vintage painting on the wall ties the two hues together nicely.

A white dining area gets a touch of yellow from a vintage lighting fixture and a brilliant yellow accent wall.

This French apartment is dressed prettily in a buttery yellow at the walls and windows. The color is pulled through onto the furniture and then the floor.

This antique headboard set against a painted, patinaed wall gives the feel of a cozy bedroom with sunshine streaming in the windows.

How fun is this eat-in kitchen? Sunshine-hued walls create a bright canvas for whimsical furniture and art. The Moroccan light fixture brings the eye up towards the ceiling. Images†1†|†2†|†3†|†4†|†5†|†6†|†7†|†8
