Yellow is bright and energetic — a bold color choice — and Golden Delicious 390 by Benjamin Moore is no exception!

It’s a mid-tone yellow “sweetened with a hint of green”.

If the idea of painting with yellow intrigues you, consider it for a kitchen or a sunny dining room, a home gym, or anywhere you’d like to bring a little extra energy.

Avoid using yellow in bedrooms or anywhere you want to avoid overstimulation.

Coordinating colors include:

  • Meadow Mist
  • Brandon Beige
  • Floral White
  • Dark Pewter

It has an LRV of 56.34, so it’s just slightly above the middle of the 0-100 scale.

How Can I Get a Sample?

The best way to try out Sherwin Williams paint colors is to order a 12”x12” peel-and-stick sample from Samplize.

A few things I love about these true color samples:

  1. You can easily move them around from room to room.
  2. They cost MUCH less than traditional sample pots, brushes/rollers, and foam boards.
  3. They are more environmentally friendly.

Plus, they’re typically delivered in just 1-3 business days, so you don’t have to add one more errand to your list (and then go back again and again when you don’t like how they look in your space). 

What is a Color Spotlight?

Every day this month, I’m highlighting a different paint color for my readers — mainly colors I haven’t really talked about before on the blog — as a fun little project.

They’re super quick blurbs that you can read in less than five minutes (NOT long, drawn out color reviews).

This will not only expose you to a variety of fun hues you might not have considered, but it’ll also give me fresh ideas for future blog posts.

Happy decorating!
