Good Colours for a Good Place

Well it may have not been Eleanor’s cup of tea, we love these primary tones to brighten up the exterior of her house. I think the closest colours from Benjamin Moore’s own colour palette are Delightful Yellow, Heritage Red, and Sailor’s Sea Blue.

While I don’t recommend painting your whole house in these, you can always introduce them in your front door, planters, furniture, or even planting flowers to match. The sky’s the limit. Eleanor tested. Chidi approved!

Colour Feature Sunday- 2023-30 Sun Porch

Yellow is the colour of sunshine, joy and happiness. It stands for freshness, positivity, clarity, energy, optimism, enlightenment, remembrance, intellect and loyalty.

Studies show that the meaning of the color yellow can be warmth, cheerfulness, increased mental activity, increased muscle energy. The color yellow helps activate the memory, encourage communication, build confidence and stimulate the nervous system.

Bright yellow is an attention getting color, and when used in combination with black, is creates one of the easiest color combinations to read and see from long distances. This is why school buses, taxi cabs, and traffic signs are painted yellow and black.

The fresh on citron.

Citron. Yellow with a hint of green. It evokes energy, but not for the calm mind. Citron carries the promise of a positive future. It is a color that starts conversations.

 * TIP* : Citron is a bold statement to any room. Why not paint a table, add pillows or a few yellow lamp bases?
