Our Colour Of The Month this April is… Sunshine Yellow!

Bringing Spring to LoveVivid, Yellow is one of our favourite happy colours! The colour of warm Sunshine, Daffodils and Zesty Lemons, we think Yellow brings energy to any situation.

Yellow is a primary colour and is widely used in the art world. Dating back to the prehistoric times, yellow is featured in cave paintings, ancient Egypt and ancient Rome art! It may not always be the main colour, but it is featured by many artists! For example, Picasso used yellow as his contract colour in his ‘Blue Period’. Van Gogh used yellow in most of his paintings such as, ‘Sunflowers’, ‘The Yellow House’, ‘Irises’ and ‘The Starry Night’, just to name a few.

The human eye processes Yellow before any other colour. This is why it is often used for cautions signs, traffic lights, taxi’s and emergency vehicles as it literally catches people’s eye!

This stand out colour has different meanings in different countries… while being widely associated with Happiness, Warmth and Summer; Japan see this colour as courage! Whereas Mexico relate bright yellows to the colour of death.

Like most colours, singers love the colour Yellow! This is definitely proven in some of the most famous songs such as ‘Big Yellow Taxi’ by Joni Mitchell, ‘Yellow’ by Coldplay, ‘Yellow Submarine’ by The Beatles, ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ by Elton John, and many more!
