Goldenrod, along with the mellowest of yellows, filled this 1960s New York living room with the feel of late summer sunshine.

These warm tones were lavishly used to set off the splendor of a lacquered and gilded Chinese Coromandel screen that was set against the back of the room.

The adjacent full-height windows were covered from floor to ceiling with yellow louvered shutters, the color enjoyed a middle-of-the-road intensity that made it neither overwhelming nor monotonous.

Perfect color cohorts in this goldenrod living room were the black carpet (with a wide goldenrod grid pattern), a medium brown aged wood on the antique armchairs, tiny pops of red in the chairs’ upholstery.
