Color Theory: And It Was All Yellow

We all love sunflowers and daisies for their cheerful color, but it’s possible to have too much of a good thing! This sun-shiny color has some lesser-known negative effects that might surprise you.

Since it’s so bright and intense, yellow can actually make people a little over energized if there’s a lot of it around. In fact, babies tend to cry more often in yellow rooms and people are more likely to become agitated or upset. So, if you have a grumpy teenager at home who’s spending a lot of time brooding in a yellow bedroom, it might be time to break out the paint!

That doesn’t mean you should get rid of every yellow patch you see! This hue is the most visible color in the spectrum, so it’s great to add little lemon-drop doses to places that need some attention. Consider perking up your living room sofa with a few yellow pillows or a set of curtains. You can also brighten up any wall by hanging a few yellow paintings.

Here are a few of our favorite uses of yellow. Tell us, how do you use yellow in your house?
