With spring just around the corner, are you tempted to swathe your space in bright and light colors? Many of our customers seem to have caught spring fever, as they pick out colorful furniture and accessories for their homes.
For many of us, yellow is synonymous with spring, since we associate it with sunshine, ducklings, and cheery blossoms. Many people choose yellow for kitchens and dining rooms and it can be a great choice for small spaces. It pairs well with many colors and works with various styles of decor, whether formal, causal, modern, eclectic, country... Yellow is also the easiest spotted color in the human range of eyesight (that's why school buses are yellow).
What is surprising, though, is that yellow is not always sunshine and flowers! In fact, it can actually be a color of rage. Psychological studies show that people are more likely to lose their temper in a yellow room. Feelings of frustration and anger also increase with the volume and intensity of yellow present and research suggests couples fight more often in yellow kitchens.
Yellow is a timeless choice and blends beautifully with blues, but it seems that the research recommends using it as an accent instead of a main color. Do you agree or disagree? How does yellow affect your environment and emotions? Leave a comment below to share your thoughts!
