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.

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.
