Today's Colour story is a double feature.......in an undertone of Yellow in Hepplewhite by Benjamin Moore and Yellow Submarine for TBT by General Paints. Both historic colours in their own palettes of time.
The Colour Language in Hepplewhite is a nod to antiques, the true colour of the past an undertone of ivory. Hepplewhite is from the Historic Palette of Benjamin Moore Paints.
It is composed of pure YELLOW, tints of white, tones of black and undertones of green-blue. The saturation of this colour is dull, warm. Suitable for a room with south west exposure - giving a warm mood. Similar colour found in the glow of a candle. In a northern exposure room the mood would be a dull, colder mood - one perfect for layering decor and textures.
In the colour language of Yellow Submarine, by General Paints is also playing into Throw Back Thursday - a classic colour from another era evoking fun, loving, and happiness.
When we look at the number system of colour sometimes it will give us a clue to the colour recipe. Here the number contains the letter M - which refers to a medium white base for tinting. The colour is made up with a large part of pure YELLOW hue, tints of white, and pure red. This gives the saturation of light to bright, bold - a 'cheery' mood. One we see in the Beatles, YELLOW Submarine!
Here are a few inspirational 'Throwbacks' for Today.
As in colour allow it to speak to your surroundings, and to your era of design with Hepplewhite or Yellow Submarine.
