Bright As Yellow: The Hidden Meanings Behind The Colour April 13, 2016 13:00

Yellow is one of the brightest colours of the spectrum, and helps capture our attention more than any other colour. It is the colour of sunshine, and is associated with joy and happiness. Yellow can also have a warming effect, and help us organise our thoughts and ideas.

In the natural world, yellow is one of the predominant colours, and appears everywhere from flowers to foods and even animals.

You can't help but feel bright and cheerful when surrounded by the colour yellow. So we've picked out some of our favourite yellow products to help illustrate some of the deeper meanings of the colour yellow:

Joy and happiness

The colour yellow is uplifting to the spirit, creating a feeling of joy, happiness, enthusiasm and fun. Yellow also provides a feeling of optimism and confidence about your life and your future. This is because it is the brightest and lightest colour on the spectrum, so this light has a positive influence on the mind and body.  

We have incorporated yellow into our Daisy Pop wine glasses, so no matter what you are drinking you're sure to feel happy and joyful. Plus the yellow highlights really do make the design go "pop!"

Yellow helps stimulate the mind, making it a great colour to help you focus while studying. It helps with logic and quick decision-making, and can inspire deep thinking. Yellow is mostly associated with the left side of the brain, which is the analytical side. In that sense, yellow is more about problem solving and finding practical solutions, rather than dreamy thoughts.

Yellow is a warming colour, but it lacks the fiery heat and passion of red. That's because yellow is non-emotional, coming from the head instead of the heart. As well as having a physically warming effect, yellow can also warm the emotions due to its association with being happy and carefree. This makes it a good choice for home decor, in small amounts. Perhaps consider painting an accent wall in yellow to really create a focal point for the room. Beware of painting children's bedrooms in yellow though, as it's said to make children cry more than any other colour.

Because of its association with intellect and new ideas, yellow is also representative of communication and clarity of thought. Yellow can help us to focus and recall information, making it easier to communicate our ideas, either orally or on paper. Many students find it helps to use yellow notepads for exams and revision, as it helps them recall and articulate their ideas more effectively.

Yellow is an effective colour for attracting attention, because it is the colour which is picked up quickest by our retinas and peripheral vision. That's the reason New York taxi cabs are painted yellow, as well as warning signs, especially when yellow is combined with black.

In the home, yellow can be used to highlight a focal point for the room, because it is so good at attracting attention.
