      My question didn’t post right. I was asking how a pale yellow would look if I use the same color throughout the dining, living room and up the stairs in the hallway. And maybe do lighter shades of that yellow in my bathrooms or bedroom.

    Why not it will be warm and reflect light. If you're unsure as to the shade, choose a creamy white which is basically white with an ochre ( light gold ) tint, cream is classic for traditional home or furnishings

    I would suggest you skew that pale yellow shade toward the creamy-toasty warm side, rather than toward the pastel Easter shade.
    A warmer cream will be timeless and rich, while a pastel tone could look like a baby's room thru the whole house.

      I feel the the pale yellow is a neutral color and seems to brighten everything up.

    I’d find using the same color throughout an entire house to be very monotonous.

      Maybe different shades of the yellow or cream color in the bathrooms or rooms that connect to the yellow.

    Ooooo 😀... I think it would be too much of 1 Color... Try some type of Accent Walls of a different color to balance it all out... There should be sometype of differentails to multip spaces in one setting

    Yes you can! Try new things. We painted our whole inside; walls and ceilings the color called TOBACCO ROADS at the suggestion of a painter friend of mine. The walls in our house are high, and the ceilings blend beautifully. Many have painted their ceilings white, but I hate the extra work of trying to cut in the paint. We have had many compliments the way it looks. Some of my friends are now painting everything the same. It saves time, touch up is simple. We did leave our door and window trim white though. I wouldn't have believed how great it turned out. Most of us have painted the inside of our home like mom and dad, but don't knock it until you try it. Talk to a professional and see what they have tried. Thanks
