9/30 Yellow


I can’t say that yellow is my favorite color. I don’t wear it, nor do I decorate it. The yellow car I owned was truly a lemon. 

But yellow is a useful color if you’re an artist or crafter. While dyeing, mix a lemon yellow with a deep purple and and you get a gorgeous cool grayish brown. While quilting, a small amount of yellow will make a quilt pop. 

A sunny yellow will make a north-facing bedroom feel warming, and any bedroom sunny and welcoming in the morning. 

Yellow can be uplifting with being too exciting, though it will rarely calm. It’s one of the most visible colors, which is why children were dressed in yellow raincoats back when kids walked to school.
