Color is a very effective design tool and bright yellow is one of the most powerful colors you can add to a room or exterior. It may be the emotional response that it seems to elicit - one of upbeat happiness, usually, something sunny and warm - or perhaps it is just the intensity...
...of the hue, but one thing is certain - even a single shot of it makes an impact and adding just a touch can wake up the whole room (or facade).
Take a look at these examples that prove the power of yellow and then look around your own room - could it use just a little squeeze of lemon?
