Look. Fans of yellow. We need to have a talk. Apparently, painting a room yellow is a way bad idea. Look at some facts I just learned according to a psychological study on the effect of colors:
– Yellow can create feelings of frustration and anger. While it is considered a cheerful color, people are more likely to lose their tempers in yellow rooms and babies tend to cry more in yellow rooms.
– Yellow is the most fatiguing to the eye due to the high amount of light that is reflected. Using yellow as a background on paper or computer monitors can lead to eyestrain or vision loss in extreme cases.
EXTRA CRY-Y BABIES?! VISION LOSS!? No thanks Jose.
That’s why this overly yellow kitchen had to go. Well, that and the fact that it was outright hideous. The talented duo of Ali and Brian at BK Wenger Properties had a go at it, making it beautiful, traditional, and unlikely to cause anyone to fly into a yellow-induced temper rage.
I don’t even understand how this is the same room. But Brian and Ali seem like pretty nice people, so we’ll take their word for it. Hey, you want to read something funny? Check out some these people’s comments about how they react to the color yellow. I think the one about the teacher’s yellow shirt is my favorite. Enjoy.
