YELLOW IS FOR HAPPY

Happy Yellow…..it is the color of the mind and the intellect. Being the lightest hue of the spectrum, the psychology of yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun. It is the best color to create enthusiasm for life and can awaken greater confidence and optimism. Using yellow in home decor is a wonderful opportunity to bring freshness and energy to a space and for fashion, a bright, yellow outfit may help bring a spirit of perkiness or renewed confidence.

With a little understanding about the psychology of  the color yellow, let’s see how we can be inspired by this primary color.
