While many in the northern hemisphere welcome spring in May, we are beginning to feel the chill of winter. Yellow is a great colour to introduce into your décor scheme to add a bit of warmth, and this month we are highlighting a beautiful yellow called Summer Memory Y2-A1-3 from the Plascon Inspired Colour System.
Used as a wall colour, yellow will add warmth and provide a cosy, friendly and inviting atmosphere. Summer Memory has an orange undertone to it which makes it more golden and less intense than bright yellows. Golden and buttery yellows work better as wall colours – as bright yellows may be too overpowering and are best used as accent colours.
