This Summer, Choose Yellow.
Summer’s finally here and it’s the perfect time to refresh your space. You’d be surprised at how simple this can be by adding a new coat of paint or little pops of colour. Choosing colours can be somewhat overwhelming at times, so getting to know your space is crucial. If you’re working with a small, poorly lit room it’s best to stay away from darker hues. Instead, opt for something that will open up the room, and give it light. Yellow adds a punch of warmth and brightness to a room of any size. If you’re decorating, consider using this fun colour. Not convinced? Here are some things you may not know about yellow. Fact: Yellow is one of the only colours visible to the colour-blind. Fact: Yellow represents joy and happiness. Fact: Yellow has a stimulating effect on the mind. Fact: Yellow houses have been known to sell faster. Used well, yellow is the perfect choice for both modern and contemporary spaces. For something subtle, consider adding a couple of yellow throw pillows, or a yellow flower arrangement. If you’re looking for something dramatic, using a yellow-patterned wall paper will give the room flare. Interior designers will agree that using yellow is a simple way to add warmth to a room without breaking the bank. Subtle or dramatic, a little yellow will go a long way. Need some inspiration?
