Is the whole house yellow? If so, I would definitely break that up. I do like the pale shade in your family/living area but the other yellows look a little strong to me and its a lot to have so much yellow.
Your wood floors are lovely!

I like the yellow in the kitchen particulary. Who makes it and what is the name of the color?

Is this one hall? Can you do a line drawing of the floor plan so we can get a better idea of hwo the rooms flow together?

One way to make the yellows look different in the various rooms is with drapery/curtains. Hang drapery panels high and wide in the family/dining room. (see illustration)

In the kitchen use a gray, white and yellow print Roman shade.

In the family room you might want to pull out the red in the picture behind the sofa by using red and yellow print drapes. Then add red throw pillows, and other accessories.

Change some of the walls to mossy green and bring in a red accent wall. Just my opinon. Otherwise, it's darling! It's currently just the perfect jump off point.

A tile back splash in the kitchen would be pretty, maybe subway tile. Could you add some molding to break up some of the walls?

I REALLY like the 3rd fabric above that janishill attached with the yellow and gray! It really opened my mind to the yellow. If you can somehow incorporate a pattern like that into the kitchen, it pulls the colors together for me and looks super hip.

Also, I don't like the picture hanging on the wall. It doesn't match the look or feel of the room.
