Yellow Color is the brightest and most energising of the warm colors. It is vibrant and unique as compared to other warm colours. Here are few points which will help you to understand and use this color more efficiently-
Psychological Effect: Yellow color is associated with joy, happiness and the sunshine. The color projects love, light, warmth, and wealth, enhances communication, learning, mood, and energy level. Yellow color combats gloom and fatigue.
Represents Hope & Safety: Yellow color is also associated with hope, as can be seen in some countries when yellow ribbons are displayed by families who have loved ones at war. Most of the street signs are on yellow backgrounds. Yellow is the colour for potentially dangerous heavy machinery like JCB.
Unique: Vibrant yellow is bright and easily visible (yellow engineer hats, yellow raincoats). Generally, people who wear yellow color clothes are perceived as funny, intelligent, warm, and harmonious.
Use in Rooms: Yellow color opens up and brightens rooms. Pale yellow tones are considered to be good choices for classrooms; warm tones good for play areas and living rooms.
Influences Mood with Variations: Light yellows also give a more calm feeling of happiness than bright yellows. Dark yellows and gold-hued yellows can sometimes look antique and be used in designs where a sense of permanence is desired. The bright yellow adds a bit of extra energy to the design.
