Yellow is Energy, Yellow is Clarity , Yellow is Happy … there is a reason why note pads are yellow, for it also stimulates creativity and intellectual alertness. So what other reason do you need to add it into your décor?

The shade or undertone is what determines the meaning and feeling of this effervescent colour, but we can all agree that we understand it’s fresh and bright energy. When I owned a paint store, the Customers often asked for yellow for their kitchens because their goal was for a bright and fresh space. It is easy to overshoot that ‘brightness’. For it’s positive attribute of being able to reflect light, Yellow can often be much too bright. When choosing your yellow, make sure you paint some samples at home to ensure it is the one for you.

Below are some examples of fabulous ways in which you can add yellow into your life this spring.
