Day Two, Photo Challenge~Yellow

Light Yellow-entry way into attic
Day Two: Yellow

When I first moved into this apartment, soon to be three years ago, all of the walls here were stark white.  Not saying I have anything against brightness, but it seemed a very depressing white.  No matter how many pictures I could get to put up, I knew I wouldn't be able to deal with all of the walls being white.  

Luckily for me, the landlord did agree to painting, provided it would be with bright colors, since in the event that I decide to move out, it's easier to paint over lighter colors than darker colors.  At least that is what he told me.

So I did the bathroom in a periwinkle type blue; the bedroom is in a very light purple, and the walkway area...there's another stairway before you get into my apartment...is painted a light yellow.  My original purpose was to use that wall area as a showcase for some of the pictures that I had framed...kind of like an art gallery set up.

I received Power of Woman by WAK for my birthday last year and had it framed.  I think that the richness of the yellow in it and the earthy tones make an excellent compliment to the light yellow wall.  It calms me down, especially when I have had a rough day.

I go up the steps, make a turn to the left, and it's the first picture I see when coming in.

Those colors sound like a fruit basket exploded. I'm usually good with an off white or a light beige.
