Colour in Context: Vanilla

Colour of the day: Vanilla
Simple description: a light, clear yellow

Notes for usage: This colour needs good lighting conditions to retain it´s bright and uplifting appearance. If used as a wall colour in north-facing interiors, the blue undertone in the light will tinge its clear impression. Excellent as an accent colour. Used in large quantities, this colour can be overpowering, despite being a pastel colour, due to its inherent radiance. Balanced with enough white space (not necessarily white in literal terms) vanilla can create a modern, vibrant feel. For surface design, be careful with textures, to prevent the colour from looking dirty due to the shadow effect.
