Colour-Coded Inspiration: Yellow

By Marica

The rainy winter has me craving a sunny day – this gloomy weather has the power to seriously depress (that, and probably the lack of sun-given Vitamin D). Here is a little visual Vitamin D inspiration to cheer you up seeing that Yellow equals sunshine! Yellow is a warm colour that denotes happiness and joy – there is not a colour more cheerful and perky than yellow. It is also said to stimulate creative and intellectual energy and symbolizes wisdom.

Use bright yellow to create excitement when red or orange may be too strong or overbearing. Yellow suggests freshness and citrus fruitiness. For a lovely contemporary and trendy combination use yellow together with shades of cool grey – it makes quite a statement (think bold geometrics and chevron patterns). If you are looking for a more refreshing ambience try using yellow with blue as they are a high contrast, eye-popping combination.
