COLOR ID: YELLOW



YELLOW, does it make you smile too? Is this your colour?

Now what does this tell about you?
The colour yellow is the colour of the mind and the intellect.
Yellow is creative from a mental aspect, the colour of new ideas, helping us to find new ways of doing things. It is the practical thinker, not the dreamer.
Yellow is the colour of the networker and the journalist, all working and communicating on a mental level.
Yellow is the scientist, constantly analysing, looking at both sides before making a decision; methodical and decisive.
Yellow is the entertainer, the comic, the clown.

So if you go for yellow you know that dreaming is just a little part of the job. Yellow makes you do things and is this not what we all deep inside want?

If you use yellow, whether it is in wearing it or using it in a decorating job, you can be sure people don't miss out on it and you better have your story ready on the why and convince them by your attitude!



How can yellow have an influence ?

Yellow is the best colour to create enthusiasm for life and can awaken greater confidence and optimism.
Yellow is the great communicator and loves to talk. (my husband will LOVE this one : )
Yellow helps us focus, study and recall information, useful during exam time.
Yellow has a tendency to make you more mentally analytical and critical - this includes being self critical as well as critical of others.
Yellow is non-emotional, coming from the head rather than the heart.
Yellow depends on itself, preferring to not get emotionally involved.
Yellow is related to the ego and our sense of self worth, to how we feel about ourselves and how we are perceived by others.
yellow in a kitchen makes us become more hungry, not only for food but also to create new things, try out different recipes....

Have you noticed yellow is THE colour of spring? Flowers are screaming for the change from winter to summer, screaming out to the bees 'here I am'...
Yellow tulips inside a room can lift the room to the spring vibe.

How to 'yellow' a room?
Yellow is a classic colour and has been used throughout history.
A "golden" tip on using it: the bigger the surface to less vibrant it should be, unless you really want to get attention.
But also to this rule there are exceptions. When combined with grey this automatically tempers the vibration and you get a classical tone.
Both modern and classical interiors can use yellow and it is a colour with a high 'FEEL GOOD' level.
Personally I'm a big fan of golden yellow and what I call mustard yellow. They work well with Black and White and grey and they give an instant GLAM feeling to a room when combined like this
