Colour speaking. Bees know better
Nature knows best so it’s hard to ignore the fact that there is a purpose behind bees’ yellow and black stripes. John Hertz, the founder of New York yellow cabs skilfully used the patent. What stood out the most in using that colour combination made his taxis more visible and consequently reduced the number of collisions.
Yellow colour brings youth, energy and optimism to mind. In that context it may be surprising to hear that, according to research on preferred colours, yellow is the least liked shade. It is due to the fact that it easily tires when too intense and distracts when used in excess.
It’s a challenge to use the colour properly in an arranged space, but if well thought through the interior can become original and unique. It is best to use soft colours in places dedicated to long hours of work as they are beneficial to cognitive abilities, stimulation, improving memory and concentration. Some claim that soft colours help with clarity of mind and their decision making.
Yellow works particularly well with black, white and purple colours. It harmonizes with blue and green. Pairing it with orange brings in energy and combining it with greys add a bit of calm.
