Pudsey Bear - Children in Need - Yellow colour of happiness. This opens a new browser window.

Were you one of the millions watching the BBC’s Children in Need last night? What a fantastic charity. I love how they focus on making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

You can’t help but notice their main brand colour. You only have to look at the charity’s mascot Pudsey Bear to see they use the colour of happiness!

(Day 17 into my 30 blogs in 30 days challenge!)

Yellow has wonderful positive psychology qualities, just perfect for children and young people.

Yellow positively communicates happiness, like on a sunny day. We feel happy, our spirits are uplifted and we feel cheerful.

It is also the colour of self-confidence and self-esteem, putting us in an optimistic mood for change and new beginnings. A wonderfully joyous colour for children.

What do you think of the colour yellow? How does it make you feel?

    I adore yellow, the colour of optimism and sunshine. Wonderful! A friend of mine had a morning room. It was bright and airy and decorated in yellow. It always made me feel happy. It must have been delightful to start every day in that room.

      Yellow is one of my favourite colours too. It always makes me smile. Using the right tone of yellow can certainly cheer up a space. Breakfast/morning room is perfect for a splash of yellow.
