Show Your True Colours with Yellow

30th June 2016

Welcome to this week’s blog which comes courtesy of Nina Bertok at Futon Company and the team at, bestowing the benefits of decorating and accessorising with the colour yellow.

Mellow Yellow

Colour, according to colour-therapists, can affect our emotions, mood, and possibly even our health. So when it comes to decorating and accessorising your home, the shades you choose have the power to affect how you feel.

“Few colours are as good at projecting luminosity and sunny warmth. Describing it as “the workhorse of the colour world” yellow projects optimism and confidence. Its welcoming nature makes it ideal for entrance halls, and it is fresh with white; bold with greys, blacks and blues; and opulent with shades of purple. The vast array of yellow hues available mean it is possible to create a spectrum of different moods with just this colour. Muted, golden shades can feel timelessly elegant, while splashes of yellow signal sharp modernity.”
