Technically, it’s not even a room, it’s our entrance foyer. It’s a hand-painted diamond design, similar to something I had seen at an area home show. It took a few sample boards before my painter translated what I was verbalizing to canvas, but finally, we got the result I was seeing in my mind.
Standing at our front door, to the left, you’ll see a yellow "keeping" room with red ceiling, to the right is our dining room, red walls with a yellow ceiling. The foyer combines both colors with black and white accents.
No wonder I’ve been drawn to Project Yellow…it hits close to home!

I love your yellow foyer! And I love the red with it…it matches my blog right now!
OMGees! How beautiful!
I have enjoyed project yellow very much! this is very nice!
That is gorgeous! And what you describe of the other rooms is wonderful!
Somehow, though, it doesn’t surprise me, because I picked up on your creativity the second I got to your blog!!
Now that’s just very pretty. I think I’ll have to play again. 🙂
Check out my post about our recent trip to Nashville!
Wow, I love it!
Great “room”. Seeing how close this was, I’m surprised we didn’t see this one earlier. The diamond pattern, with the angle of the staircase, the dark wood contrast, all make this so wonderfully visual. And I love love love that you didn’t shoot it straight on. Your chosen angle really works here. Nice job, again.
I’m doing my best to keep up with the PY posts. I have another yellow find I just put up. I’m trying to space them out so I’ll have enough to finish the week. I suppose I could always look for more. 🙂
Interesting design…Not very Scandinavian ;), but as I have been in America, I understand the value of your way to do things. I’d like to see all other rooms…
I did a double take as I also have a similar pattern in my hall~ I must go and take a picture just for fun and post it!
I painted my kitchen cupboards yellow, but am far too lazy (and to be fair – busy today) to post a photo;) just now.
Very Pretty!!!! Love it!!!! =)
I had something very similar into my dining room at my last house, also after seeing it at a home show.
Your’s looks a lot better than mine.
I want to come live at your house.
