‘Caution’, ‘Danger’, ‘Climb Aboard’… yellow signs are not easily overlooked. They’re also easy to see at a distance. And for the most attention-grabbing, high-visibility combination of colours, you can’t go wrong with black and yellow. That’s why warning signs are yellow; even in thick fog, they still command attention. And that’s also why abroad, school buses and taxis are often painted a vibrant, glossy yellow with big black lettering. You just can’t miss them (at least, we hope you don’t).

Do you have a great feature in your home that deserves more attention? Yellow may just be your secret weapon to achieving show-stopping decorating success.
