Yellow is a symbol of optimism and the soft, pastel yellows are clear, light and uplifting for use in home decorating. Although yellow (and the lighter tones in particular) are considered more of a feminine colour, they do work well with dark steely greys for a more unisex look and balance. A warm colour, it can help to bring in a touch of sunshine to cold interiors any time of the year!
