It is no surprise that the 2018 ‘Color of the Year’ is vibrant yellow. Yellow is a welcoming color which can bring a radiant feeling. Designing your space with hues of yellow will instantly add a gush of energy to the environment. Producing feelings of strength and stability.

Different hues of yellow often spark different emotions. For instance, using mellow hues in a communal area will bring a sense of relaxation. However, the use of bright hues promotes hunger.

Using accents in your design can be tricky. The general rule to a perfect design is to choose a three-color palette.

It is important that the dominant color takes up to 60% of the space. While the secondary color takes up 30% of the room. Leaving the remaining 10% as the accent. Yellow is the perfect pop of color to make a design feel fresh and youthful.
