COLOUR PSYCHOLOGY
Where to use and where not to use?

Yellow communicates happiness, therefore making an excellent choice for kitchens, dining rooms and bathrooms, where it is energising and uplifting. In halls, entrances and small spaces, yellow can feel expansive and welcoming.

Although it is a cheery colour, it is not the best choice for a main colour scheme unless being used in a tinted (hue mixed with white) value. Studies have shown that people are more likely to lose their temper in a yellow interior, -interesting – and apparently babies also seem to cry more in yellow rooms, most noteworthy!

Furthermore in chromotherapy, yellow is believed to stimulate the nerves and purify the body.

or tinted down values of this energising colour!
