Yellow color in the interior is not all it seemsrelevant, but this year it was yellow, or rather - the shade of buttercup was called one of the colors of the year. How and where it can be successfully applied - talked today with a professional designer

The Pantone Color Institute is about to openthe main coloristic secret of the season is the new list of 2017 shades. In the meantime, this has not happened, we recall the most charismatic shades of this year. This time, interior designer Varvara Zelenetskaya will tell us about buttercup. Varvara Zelenetskaya, interior designer Graduated specialist in interior and furniture design, specialist in art management (graduated from the Humanities and Applied Institute and the Institute of Contemporary Art), interned in Florence at the Lorenzo di Medeci Design Institute.

- There is an opinion that this is the color of schizophrenics.Hence the yellow houses and bright yellow elements in the clothes of the futurist poets. This is, of course, the color of madness, but like all shades, it can be very different. Anyway, if you don't want to go crazy, I would not recommend painting the entire room with buttercup. On the one hand, it is an invigorating and energizing color, but on the other, it can be very tiring. Therefore, if you desperately want to see this shade in the interior, then you should either thoroughly whiten it, or be prepared for the effect of an energy overdose.

In my opinion, buttercup would be ideal asaccents - edging or lining for dark curtains. If there is an irresistible urge to hang all yellow curtains, I would recommend doing this only in public areas and try to avoid such steps in rooms where food will be present. For walls, I would recommend using buttercup as an accent on one and preferably not the longest wall. As an ornament on walls, yellow can also be beautiful.

Oddly enough, even bright orange colors are notas aggressive as yellow. Probably, they are more inherent in human nature and therefore cause a minimum of rejection. No wonder the flowers that are called "night blindness" are bright yellow. This shade is really dazzling to a certain extent, for example, like the sun, which is also yellow. This is probably why we can subconsciously be afraid of such a shade as buttercup.
