Have you been thinking about painting this fall? Perhaps you’re in need of a lift? Whether it’s your mood that needs lifting or if you want to increase the energy and “lightness” in your house, yellow may be your color. Some research suggests that yellow can increase self-esteem and can strengthen levels of overall well being and health.
In Feng Shui yellow is the color of sunlight, cheerful and uplifting, it brightens any home or office with a breath of fresh air. It can also create a cozy warmth with a welcoming feeling to nearly any room in your house. There are so many options to choose from whether it’s a bright and shiny lemon yellow or a pale creamy or buttery yellow.
If you’re just not sure about putting yellow on the walls, you can try a fun painting project with furniture, say your dining room chairs? Even small things with that yellow glow as in yellow colored candles, flowers, or yellow and gold colored crystals like citrine and pyrite can bring a little light into a dull, dark room.
So try a little yellow in your home this fall… it just may ward off the dark winter to come!
