Having just finished a colour seminar at Manderley Fine Furniture I am reminded that I , as a designer, take my knowledge for granted.
We all love yellow with its connotations of sunshine and happiness but did you know that being in a yellow room is not so happy?
Here’s where a little more information can help.
Colour can be described using three attributes:
1. Hue (the colour)
2. Value (lightness or darkness)
3. Chroma (intensity)
So read articles about the psychological and physiological responses to colour considering these three attributes. Is butter yellow the same as sunflower yellow or as ocher?
If you need help choosing a paint or material colour please contact me, I’m happy to help you.
