Our Color Trend Watch Yellow!
From the Golden Globe Runway straight into our homes, yellow is the color to watch. Since home fashion follows runway fashion, we’re on the lookout for yellow home accessories, fabrics and paint colors this year.
So how will you use yellow in your home or office … or will you???
Psychology of color – Yellow
Yellow is perceived as warm and welcoming. It is a color that has energy, spontaneity, creativity, lightness, newness; its modern, innovative, full of surprise with a hint of caution. In Feng Shui, Yellow is an Earth Element (grounding and support).
Choosing yellow paint colors …
Because yellow is so full of energy think of using it where energy flows in your home; an entry foyer, kitchen, home office, family room or dining room. Choose yellow paint carefully in a bedroom. Yellow is a common choice for bedrooms but a bright yellow is too stimulating for a restful sleep, so choose a soft warm tone for a bedroom.
- Introducing Yellow into your space ~
The yellow counter stools below are a great example of infusing a space with a pop of energizing color.
