Hello, Yellow!…
Yellow equals Happy Chic joie de vivre and sunny optimism.

Jonathan Adler, Happy Chic Colors

Also to be found in this gloriously colourful book, the following quote by Vincent Van Goph, master of golden goodness.

Yellow is capable of charming God.

Actually it’s been suggested that Van Goph’s yellow period, when he painted Sunflowers, Starry Night and Night Café among others, was due to the sideffects of excessive digitalis, which is not an over-saturation of electronic devices but too much of an extract from the plant Foxglove. Van Goph was prescribed this to suppress his epilepsy and manic behaviour.  Symptoms of this condition [Xanthopsia] are blurry, haloed lights  [check out Starry Night] and yellow tinted vision. *

The alternative theory is he liked yellow. Or it’s a combination of the two…
