Mellow Yellow

by Universal Interiors

Mellow Yellow

Now that the summer holidays are over, you may be finding yourself putting a sweater on as you step out the door; maybe even putting the heating on and looking at those winter warmer recipes for dinner.

There is a quiet nip to the air and the trees are beginning to change. So if you are feeling the cold and desire something warm then here at Universal Interiors we are looking at bright and cosy colours that will really bring the heat.

This month, we will be exploring yellow. It is an option for those desiring an illuminated and fresh design. It evokes a sense of happiness and energy and is often a choice for children’s rooms.

It is also associated with happiness, friendship, and fun. Yellow is an ideal colour for a study, as it stimulates the left side of the brain where we think practically and can create new ideas with clarity and it activates our memory.

It is the easiest colour for the human eye to process and is therefore used in signs and emergency vehicles.

In Japan, it represents courage. Whereas in Mexico, the vibrant yellow marigold is one of the most famous symbols of the Mexican holiday, Dia de Los Muertos, it is said that its scent and colour help guide families’ ancestors to their altars.

So if you are looking to add some fun to your home, warm up a room or even boost your motivation while studying, then yellow is the ideal colour for you. In the words of Vincent Van Gogh, ‘How wonderful the colour yellow is. It stands for the sun.’

If you desire just a light hint of warmth to your room then our Premier High Gloss Vanilla fitted wardrobes are ideal with just a subtle touch of yellow.
