A Jolly Good Yellow

Yellow Roller Blinds

Yellow is the strongest colour, psychologically. For this reason, it is widely used to attract attention and enhance visibility. Examples of such are the use of yellow in “Caution” signs for various situations, it is famously used in New York to make official taxis more recognisable and it is even used by the RAF's Search and Rescue Force to make their aircraft, the Westland Sea King, easier to see at a distance. Because it is such a strong colour, any large expanses of yellow that you wish to introduce into your home would be recommended to be toned down, rather than use an intensely bright yellow. Using particular tones of yellow in the wrong proportion to other colours in your colour scheme is believed to evoke instinctive feelings of emotional distress, fear and anxiety. However, an effective use of a sensible yellow, such as a rich cream colour, can motivate the intellect, as well as inspire senses of optimism, confidence and friendliness. There are, of course, home accessories that can be placed in a room to benefit from the colour's energising power. Introducing some yellow window blinds can be an effective way to help a sunshine deprived, north-facing room achieve a much brighter look. White and Yellow can vividly compliment each other and even if the colours result in a room that looks too insipid, you can bring in some black adornments or graphics to add some detail and make the room more tasteful. The larger furnishings in the room can be chosen to give a significant amount of luminosity to the room. west elm offer home furniture with quaint and contemporary designs, including sofas and chairs that are available in, amongst other colours, a soft yellow named 'dandelion'. Or if you would rather choose a different colour for the seating, you can still add the colour in the form of soft furnishings; the curtains, throws and cushions.The Shimmer Sunshine curtain fabric, available from various curtain suppliers, is a light-reflecting fabric that is sure to brighten the room. For more continuation of this colour scheme, in a north-facing or any other room, Concept Handtufting Ltd specialise in the design and supply of bespoke area rugs and would be able to provide a unique rug to suit your room plan.

To further the incorporation of yellow into your interior, but in slightly more subtle measures, you could display some accessories that will add style while serving a function. Vita Audio's R1 Tabletop Radio is available in a limited edition yellow lacquer and, being a product by award-winning Vita Audio, will produce high quality sound from either the radio or a plugged in MP3 device. Controliss Electric Window Blinds are also available in a selection of yellow tones. Our Remote Control Roller Blinds can be produced with different fabric colours, prints and textures that include various creams as well as other more gold or shaded yellow styles. It can be hard to visualise how each fabric would look in your home, judging by the website picture alone, that is why Controliss send free fabric samples to anyone who requests them, to allow the customer to better decide which material they want for their blind.
