A Cheerful Yellow Space

"Yellow is the color of sunshine. It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. Yellow produces a warming effect, arouses cheerfulness, stimulates mental activity, and generates muscle energy."

Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit there's a certain cheeriness to yellow that's uniquely it's own. The space above makes me want to run around that house and jump on the bed. Yellow is definitely my go-to energizing color.

Love the yellow and white bedspread! It's true about yellow it's so grey and dreary here and a lot of people inside homes are painted yellow I thought it was so weird. Now I understand winter year 2 and not much sun.

I painted my lounge yellow last summer and it instantly lifted the room! Always puts a smile on my face too :)

I do love it! Which is why we want it in the nursery. Cheerful for those nights me and baby don't feel so cheerful ;)

Yellow is my favorite color! I just saw a bunch of retro inspired kitchen appliances at Target- I was so tempted to make over my kitchen completely.

I never tire of seeing yellow! I've been trying to think of ways to use it in the new house.

loving the yellow! i might be a small dose of yellow kind of girl (and i CANNOT wear the color, except maybe butter yellow, or yellow away from my face -- TMI TMI TMI!), but a little bit of cheer never hurt a thing. :)

Funny you should write about this... Just finished painting my living room last night and it is most definitely yellow! It makes me happy just to be in there!

Great post!

I love the first room. It's so cheery yet peaceful at the same time. I don't have lots of yellow in my home. However, I do have a golden colored dining room and maybe that's why I love it so much...
