Color commentary

Did you know beeswax yellow was the “Color of the Week?”

Neither did I!

And here is it Sunday.  Who knows what grievous fashion faux pas I may have committed due to my ignorance of this exciting new color trend.

Thank you, Stylelist.com, for letting me know in the nick of time.

Thank you for sharing this specific shade of yellow in a variety of clothing, accessories and packaging formats…so I can be sure to use the right yellow (and not commit yet another possible fashion don’t).

In case you are curious, here’s what a real chunk of yellow beeswax looks like.

Way to go nature!

Now I can see why designers have been inspired to recreate this color, which is — according to Stylelist.com — taking over spring runways.

Did you write that down?  Did you note the particular shade?  We almost missed it, people!

Beeswax yellow is the “Color of the Week!!!!”

Color crime

If you have a few extra pounds on your person, don’t blame yourself.

Blame Benjamin Moore.

A study published in a recent issue of Contract magazine reveals that people who eat in kitchens and dining areas painted red, orange and yellow feel hungrier.  The sunnier hues apparently make food more attractive.

To eat less, we need to surround ourselves with blue light and blue tones…or, at the very least, use blue utensils and dishes to help curb our hunger.

Now they tell me!

My entire house  is a tribute to the colors red, yellow and orange.  They’re even in my bathroom.  I have always loved their energy and fire, but now I guess — deep down – I was really just looking for another excuse to eat.

This revelation has its advantages.  Now, if I gain a pound or two, it’s not my fault; it’s the yellow paint in my kitchen.  And all those red dishes.  Or maybe the orange FLOR tiles in the living room.  Heck, I even have a red leather love seat.

I’m the victim here!
