Color Crush: Let the Sun Shine In

by Amy on May 13, 2021

It’s been said that the color yellow can promote tension, but color theory aside, isn’t it just warm and inviting? Particularly with an abundance of natural light streaming in from outdoors, yellow can be magical, like liquid sunshine inside a room.

Whether it’s a bold, bright lemon or a subtle lemonade, any shade of yellow literally brightens the space it’s in and provides a sunnier outlook on things with its optimistic hue. When paired with black or grey, it even ascends to an unexpected level of sophistication.

Today, we’re inviting you to let the sun shine in a little and play around with this irrepressibly happy color.

    Gorgeous!  My son wanted an orange room - we met in the middle with orange accents.  He loves it and so do we - bright and cheery!

    I cant see how yellow should tense anyone up. I think its just a slice of joy.
