The Beauty of Seeing the World in Shades of Yellow

Do you love yellow, and the look of Global Style Design? Fill your home with your favorite color, and the rich colors, exotic designs, and hand-made works of art that bring the beauty of different cultures to life in your space. Varying shades of yellow and gold are used in Bohemian style and Modern Global styles.

Yellow is used in various shades and saturation levels in many different cultures. Warm shades of yellow are much loved in Indian-style designs. Yellows, particularly golden yellows are often found in Turkish rugs. Golden yellows are popular wall colors in Morocco. Bright lemon yellows to earthy golds are popular in Mexican-style design.

Throughout time, in many parts of the world, the color yellow has been regarded as the color of wisdom. It is optimistic and may help with concentration. It is energetic, bright, cheerful, playful, and carefree.

Yellow can create a sense of warmth and coziness, but be careful not to use too much. Some research has shown that too much of a good thing can make people lose their tempers more often and can make babies cry. Although I can see how a lot of crying babies could make people lose their temper more often too!

Use your judgment and consider how yellow makes you feel. Try soft yellow wall colors and save brighter yellows for accents, or use brighter yellows in smaller rooms to test it out.

    1. Thank you!! I have some shades of yellow in my own home and they do feel happy. They are light shades so not over-powering and I have enjoyed them.

  1. I have always loved yellow, MaryAnn, so this post was right up my alley!
