Color Crush: (Not so) Mellow Yellow

I've always been a bit apathetic towards the color yellow, but the latest issue of House Beautiful has rekindled my interest in the hue.  The intensity of the color gives it a modern freshness. Because I find it so over-powering, it only works for me in small doses.  For instance, how fab is this headboard in Tilton Finwick designer Anne Maxwell Foster's bedroom, featured in this month's issue?

I LOVE her room down to all the details.  The Farrow & Ball wallpaper, the Hickory Chair side tables, the bedding with the hint of lime in the bedskirt, the abstract art- it's all FAB!  The pop of yellow is just the icing on the cake.  Here are a few more yellow pops I adore:

I don't know if I would enjoy having yellow on my bedroom walls, a place where I'd like to feel relaxed.  But I do love that Stephen Schubel paired the yellow walls here with a neutral palette of whites and browns:
