Yellow tones inside

My painters are suggesting yellow for my interior colors. Is that a popular choice nowadays?

I've seen many homes with yellow tones, builders seem to really like the beiges.  One thing you could do to satisify yourself is to spend next sunday visiting as many open houses as you can- skipping the new construction open houses, take a look at how other homes are painted.  there will be some bad ideas and some good ideas.  But chances are pretty good that you'll see quite a few yellows and beiges and get a good feel for how they look and whether or not you want to follow this suggestion.

Without more information, I'm assuming that the painters mean a soft buttery yellow; it was a really popular choice in the early 2000's, but other colors are considered more current now.

If you are living in the home, my suggestion would be to consult a professional home stager to help you choose neutral colors (beige is only one of many) that are flexible enough to complement your furnishings, current, and accommodate a variety of decorating tastes.

Yeah, it all depends on which 'yellow' we're talking about here.  I agree that yellowy beiges would be a decent choice, but there are some awful shades of yellow out there...  My advice:  If in doubt, choose something else.

Do you have a way to share what yellow they are suggesting?  There are some creamy colors that are excellent, not quite yellow in reality but looks very yellow when placed against some white.

My powder room is very yellow, and the happiest room in the house.

Yellow is definitely not what any clients I have worked with have asked for. They typically ask for yellow walls to be made a neutral color. You should have a staging person come and look or interior decorator to come and give you ideas.

I'd say no. A little yellow goes a long way. If you go with yellows, keep them closer to neutrals instead of sunny tones. 

Personally, I like a little yellow, but many don't so hedge your bets.

Yellow isn't the first color that comes to mind with most folks.

Investors use the beige/tan with white trim. Painting the basement - floor grey, white walls. However I believe that the right yellow is still neutral, but adds a little brightness. (roasted sesame)

I'm sure your painters aren't suggesting a bright lemon-yellow paint shade. Pale yellows are indeed very popular, desirable and neutral.

Yellow is not a neutral color.  Have your Realtor recommend the color to use.  It depends on the lighting of your home. A beige cream color is a popular color.
