  • 2 min read

The color yellow is our favorite, that is clear, but we love color anyway: color in nature, special color combinations, what color does to you and what colors mean. Who better than Kara de Rooij can tell us more about this? Kara launched her own vegan watercolor paint brand Kaia Natural Watercolor this year, and how! This color expert shares with us 10 things you didn't know about the happiest color yellow. Read on and find out 10 very fun facts about yellow. No nonsense, but real facts.

1 Happy yellow

By looking at yellow you make the hormone serotonin, which is known as the happiness hormone. So it has been proven that yellow makes you happy!

2 Nauseous?

Yellow is avoided on airplanes, as excessive exposure to the color can cause dizziness and nausea. And of course we shouldn't have that!

3 yellow cab

In many countries, taxis are yellow. This is because the University of Chicago has shown that yellow is the color best seen from a distance.

4 Love

Today we see red as the color of love, but in ancient times yellow was the color of love and lust. Venus, the goddess of love, wore yellow robes in images.

5 B lukewarm does not exist without yellow

Yellow was Vincent van Gogh's favorite color. One of his statements is 'blue does not exist without yellow'. It is therefore hardly possible to find a painting by him in which no yellow has been used.

6 Crying about yellow

Babies cry more in a yellow room. So if you're going for gender neutral… choose green!

7 Lose Weight

Yellow speeds up your metabolism. If you want to lose weight, it can also help to eat from a yellow plate.

8 Post it

The fact that Post-it notes are yellow is purely coincidental. The paper mill she started making had a pile of yellow paper left over and decided to turn it into sticky notes. However, yellow is a very good color for Post-its, because yellow stimulates memory.

9 Sleep inducing

People who sleep in a room painted yellow sleep an average of 7 hours and 40 minutes. The color thus achieved the second highest score. Only blue scored higher with 7 hours and 52 minutes.

10 Smart

Yellow increases your creativity and boosts your intelligence. A good color for a study place!
