Anne Roselt, Plascon Colour Manager
Yellow is the brightest and happiest colour in the spectrum; it brings a sense of joy and a touch of sunshine wherever it is used.
Sunrise Glow (Y2-A1-2) from the Terrain palette in the Plascon 2017 Colour Forecast has an earthiness that promotes a sense of well-being, that raises the spirits and injects vitality into a space.
This bright, sunny yellow is also perfect for a kitchen.
Yellow in a child’s room creates a happy and vibrant space. Be sure to add some cool neutrals to calm the brightness of the yellow. Purple is the complementary colour to yellow; adding purple will balance and enhance the colours.
Use in small doses to provide a lift and to add some light and energy to a space.
When quietude and relaxation are more important in the bedroom, steer clear of bright yellows as they are mentally stimulating. Choose a softer tint of yellow which is more calming but still has the uplifting qualities. Add whites and neutrals to soften the look even more.
Adding some yellow accessories to a blue room brings warmth and energy to the room.
We love to hear from you – let us know if you have used yellow in your home.
