Inject happiness and optimism into your space with this bright pick. Consider using Buttercup for your front door to welcome guests. You may also use it as an accent in the living area to add a joyous vibe. If you're not a hundred percent about painting your walls, choose vases or ceramic bowls in this vibrant tint to add life to your home.
