Yellows are happy and optimistic. It is the color of the smiley face! Choosing the right yellow is sometimes difficult since yellows magnify on a wall. If you are looking for a very bright yellow, choose one of the top three colors on a clean yellow stripe card so you won’t get too shocking of a yellow. Yellows also look best in rooms or spaces with lots of natural light – otherwise, the yellow could look dingy. They encourage spontaneity.
