INTERIORS & FASHION ACCENTS
Inspirations: Dandelions and buttercups, my favorite summer dress from when I was a little girl, of PAC-MAN, and the somehow timeless emoji - the smiley face. Symbolic of positivity, sunshine, and hope, yellow radiates messages of optimism.
Used to convey divinity, happiness, success, freedom, since ancient times the Chinese culture and Buddhist people have adorned their lives with yellow clothing, artwork, jewelry, and keepsakes to symbolize these qualities.
TURMERIC & AYURVEDA
Since the pre-industrial era in India, turmeric has been used as a natural textile dye to yield a vivid yellow color.
From interiors to the runway, the color yellow adds vibrance to the world around us. Forecasted as a color trend for 2017, we’re starting to see it start to pop up all around us. Popped with black and mixed with neutrals, some of our favorite examples are included here.
