Surprisingly, of the three primary colours, yellow is the least popular for interior design, along with secondary colours, orange and brown. According to a survey by a well-known major paint manufacturer, as we get older we favour orange less. None the less, yellow appears in a lot of popular songs, ….Submarine, ….Rose of Texas, They call me mellow …., Tie a ….ribbon round the old oak tree, Goodbye ….brick road. It is also known to represent honour and loyalty, and, other unkindly, cowardice. Bananas in Pyjamas and Big Bird are very yellow indeed, and couldn’t be happier. In art, it is a favourite. Van Gogh used yellow by the bucket load in corn fields and starry nights; and Sunflowers being one of his most enduring masterworks.
