"Van Gogh rented a small yellow house situated on the Place Lamartine. He intended that it would become the center of his Studio of the South. In a letter to his sister, he described the cheerful building as "a little yellow house with a green door and green blinds, whitewashed inside—on the white walls very brightly colored Japanese prints, red tiles on the floor—the house in the full sunlight—and over it an intensely blue sky…."
"Yellow is not a practical colour to use when selling expensive items to men ...
they perceive it as an untrustworthy and childish ...
and avoid yellow if you wish to evoke safety and stability.
Care is needed with shades of yellow as they can lose their warmth and appear dirty. "
