I love color. It’s most likely quite evident in my scrapbook pages. I am not afraid to mix and match colors at all. The yellow and gray color combo trend that started months ago fascinates me because yellow is one of my all-time favorite colors.
Are you in love with yellow and gray? Let’s look at the psychology of color as posted by Annie B. Bond at care2.com:
Yellow: The color of happiness, wisdom and imagination, Yellow is chosen by the mentally adventurous, searching for novelty and self-fulfillment. Yellow usually goes with a sunny and shrewd personality, with a good business head and a strong sense of humor. It is the color of intellectuality and all things to do with the mind. Yellow folks are usually clear and precise thinkers who have a good opinion of their own mental capacities and who have lofty ideals. They may at times tend to shun responsibility, preferring freedom of thought and action.
Gray: The color of caution and compromise, diligent Grays search for composure and peace and often work hard without reward. Older Grays like life to run on an even keel with few ups and downs. Young Grays may be withdrawing from life and suppressing their personalities. Grays often have good business ability and tend to work too much.
