Something got me thinking about the healing nature of color today and thus I’m taking a break from the ordinary on this site. Since living in an apartment with dark green carpeting, I have missed decorating with colors such as yellow and red as we have found other hues (such as soft green, soft cream and plum) better distract the eye from the bold carpeting. But, I have heard and found in my own experience that yellow is a good color to surround oneself with, a mood lifter if you will. (I guess it makes sense…God did not create a yellow sun for nothing!) I figure if I can not use it right now on walls or other more obvious surfaces, I do not have to give up on it all together!
How? For example, these now glassless frames I’ve had lying around forever. I decorated them with the few materials this non-crafty mama had lying around (which unfortunately did not even include glue thus the some what obvious tape;) and will put them in the kid’s rooms.
Also, these bedrooms I found online…sometimes simply seeing pictures of a room bathed in yellow is relaxing and uplifting enough in itself! Once we feel the freedom to paint in other colors again, my first pick will be yellow!:)
Do you find a particular color(s) lifts your spirits?
