Years have gone by since any painting has been done in most of my home. The kitchen and the bath are the only 2 rooms that have any new paint since I’ve lived here. So I’ve been thinking about what I could do and how I’d like to do it. I was doing a little research on line yesterday about new ideas for interior decorating and came upon this interesting article.
Adults reported feeling happier when in the presence of the colors green and yellow. On our deepest levels, these glorious spring colors remind us of sunshine, spring fields and happiness. Don't underestimate the power and importance of your physical environment - your home, your office and your car anywhere you live. Paint it happy!
So I decided to check out the color yellow and this is what I found about it
the color yellow
Yellow is sunshine
Yellow is one of the warm colors. Because of the high visibility of bright yellow, it is often used for hazard signs and some emergency vehicles. Yellow is cheerful.
For years yellow ribbons were worn as a sign of hope as women waited from their men to come marching home from war. Today, they are still used to welcome home loved ones.
Yellow ribbon - hope, support, remembrance
Mellow yellow - laid back, relaxation
And of course I had to check out the color green too!
Green is life. Abundant in nature, green signifies growth, renewal, health, and environment
Green is a restful color with some of the same calming attributes of blue
With both a warming and cooling effect, the color green denotes balance, harmony, and stability. Use several shades of green for a fresh, Springtime feel.
Right now the walls in my front room are plain old beige, tan or something in between.
The front room faces north so yellow would be good to warm it up. The dinning room has a double window that lets sunlight in during the afternoon and into the evening. So green should be good there. Now I just have to find the right shades.
It is fun planning for some brighter days around my house
