There Is No Blue Without Yellow | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

One of my friends, who grows food so beautifully, gave me a young pumpkin.  Attracted by the round shape, I photographed it and played with Photoshop magic manipulations. So many new versions came out that inspired me to create some new home décor concept boards.

I like very much the first color board I created in yellow tones. Yellow represents the sun in all its energy, it’s optimistic and cheerful. Some people feel annoyed around yellow, some people feel anxious and babies cry more in a yellow room. For these people, muted colors must be mixed with yellow to accommodate the negative effect yellow has on their mind and soul.
Solution: tone down with grayish tones and some light brown, introduce  light by adding bluish and pale yellow hues, harmonize it with any hue of light and dark green and punch it up with a small percentage of yellow.

For the rest of us, yellow represents life and happiness. What is the solution? Go for the high tones of vibrant blue, green and purple, mix in the warm golden-yellow and feel kissed by the summer.

There is no blue without yellow and without orange ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun ~ Pablo Picasso

I told my dentist my teeth are going yellow. He told me to wear a brown tie ~ Rodney Dangerfield.

When in doubt about the colors of your décor, add a little touch of brown. It’s safe and classy. Ciao,
Valentina

    Van Gogh’s quote explains a lot of his art, which I love.
