I have this yellow
from a bathroom remodel. I was thinking about painting one the the smaller walls with that yellow. The wall in our family room where the television sits would be my choice.
What do you guys think?
I would stay far away from yellow in that combination if it were me. Yellow is a very high energy colour, used right it can be warm.
I guess it depends on the theme you are going for, but in my opinion yellow usually works best with old country antique themes. And that is a very bright colour, but I have seen lighter and warmer versions of yellow work well in kitchens.
The offwhite shade of blue would go well with beautiful light river rock grays, and shades of beiges. Like any of these:
You could also go with a more potent shade of light blue to add more contrast, or even darker shades of blue. It would also look good with shades of light brown. Ultimately I think it would look great contrasted with light wood trim and light wood paneled walls.
