Perpetual sunshine is one of the many rewards of using concentrated bursts of color in home decor. In this radiant example from 1963, lemon yellow, citrus green, and a tangerine orange did the trick.

When choosing how to accent this small yellow, green & orange bedroom with a single bed, the designers kept it simple by using a bright color scheme, and look that had a bit of a Southwestern flavor.

First, there was the lemon peel fringed bedspread, that coordinated with the coffee pot and mug. Next up was the Haitian rug of citrus green, which played off the cactus plants in the corner.

Finally, a flickering of tangerine or mandarin orange accents could be seen in the square wood framed mirror, flowers, ottoman in front of the dressing table, bed pillow, and other accessories.

The small cabinet (in the foreground) and the unusual headboard (carved with MCMLV, or 1955) appeared to be made of oak with a natural finish. 

For a seasonal change and a rest from strong color, the temperature could be lowered with a white bedspread and rug. With its accents intact, the room would be just as appealing, but quite different in flavor.
