Here is my theory. Color and what is “IN” and “On trend” and “Hot” etc etc seems to be always in flux…or what is being the HOT color, isn’t even really a color, but WHITE, which while I LOVE a beautiful white room…especially as a perfect backdrop to other colors…is a bit devoid of color.

Since green is a by-product of yellow+blue, there is an ease about this combination. It feels very natural and symbiotic.

IT IS EASIER TO FIND THE WRONG YELLOW THAN THE RIGHT YELLOW.

It is important when choosing a yellow paint color, to test it on your walls. Yellow is highly susceptible to the changes that occur with light. There are warmer yellows which lean toward gold and yellows with bright lemon undertones. One HUGE discovery I made the hard way was that many of the pale yellows are actually NOT CALLED YELLOW!!!

YELLOW IS HERE TO STAY

IN 2010, The Dining room walls at Thomas Jeffersons Virginai Estate, MONTICELLO, were taken back to their original color (that is over 200 years ago by the way – and the color, formulated by Ralph Lauren paints is named CHROME YELLOW.

FROM THE MONTICELLO WEBSITE

“Monticello’s bright Dining Room is the centerpiece of newly transformed spaces being unveiled this June. The most noticeable change to the Dining Room is the color if its walls―from the much-copied Wedgwood blue to a brilliant chrome yellow. Extensive research by paint experts indicated that Jefferson chose the lively yellow for the Dining Room around 1815. Not only was it one of the most fashionable colors of the time, but it was also one of the most expensive. …. This comprehensive repainting and refurnishing of the Dining Room provides visitors with fresh insights into Monticello’s domestic life and Jefferson’s much celebrated ingenuity and taste.”
