Long a favorite color for traditional design, yellow kicks up high spirits in any style’s decorating. This 2011 D.C. Design House dining room gets its youthful glow with daubs of yellow.

Though the walls are kept a creamy neutral, yellow isn’t confined to accents.

It blankets the floor through an inventive paint treatment that transforms the wood into jaunty yellow-and-cream diamonds.
