Q&A: Should I Go Yellow?

Question from a reader:
I’m moving into an apartment that receives northwest light and the living room feels dark. I’ve read that painting a room yellow can help brighten it, but I don’t know if the yellow paint will be too much or end up giving the room a weird ambiance.

What do you think? I really like blue colors, but I’ve also read that they might not help my ‘dark room’ situation.

We found a photo (above) of what your room might look like if painted yellow and in my opinion the color yellow doesn’t seem to “brighten” the light so much as it sets a different tone and mood for the room. A semi-gloss white may be more appropriate for this situation if light is the main concern.
Any other ideas to help Vanessa?
