They Call it Mellow Yellow
By Janet Woods Msc.d
Yellow is a bright cheery color that mimics the color the sun. In homes, it can brighten a room that lacks natural sunlight and add a very comfortable level of the fire element to any area. From “hot” yellow to pale yellow, there are numerous shades that will work well for feng shui balance.
Yellow can add a cheerful tone to a child’s room or create a warm, cozy and inviting environment for a family room. It is believed that the color yellow can enhance overall well-being and even improve self-esteem.
In keeping with tradition, bright yellow would best be used in the east (Healthy & Family Area ) and southeast ( Wealth Area ) areas of your home.
