Psychology of Color: YELLOW

Posted on: February 9, 2011

When pure white light passes through a prism, it separates into all the visible colors. Color Psychology looks at identifying the Psychological Effects of Color. So let’s take a look at our February color of the Month: YELLOW.

Under therapy studies, YELLOW is thought to stimulate the nerves and purify the body. YELLOW is a “warm” color, which evokes emotions of warmth, of comfort. Another word associated with the color is “cheerful”.


YELLOW, of course, is the color of the SUN! The brain actually releases serotonin (the brain’s “feel good” chemical), according to studies, when a person views YELLOW. This speeds the metabolism, and bring out creatives thoughts (think: YELLOW Legal Pads!). The color invokes laughter, happiness, good times.

YELLOW is the most visible color, the first color the human eye notices. That’s a reason behind its “traffic-related” appearances: Yield Signs and Traffic Lights.

YELLOW in its deepest tones can bring out the passions. So in decorating, use yellow sparingly, for that flash of brilliance. And what better place than on your windows!  Golden Shades this month at CellularWindowShades equals more “gold” in your pocket:

I love the yellow shade in my bathroom! It is a great way to wake up in the morning with a hot shower and bright sunny feeling room…

Ah, thanks for sharing your story, Peggy!

It IS amazing how something like a little “bright spot” in the morning makes all the difference to the rest of one’s day.
