STEP INSIDE: YELLOW

Yellow was said to be Einstein’s favorite color... Vincent van Gogh 
called it, "A color capable of charming God."

Yellow, the most luminous in the spectrum, is psychologically the most happy. 
Bursting with sunshine, sunflowers and daffodils, it is a color that stands for
intellect, curiosity and freedom. 

The Swedish 1967 film, I AM CURIOUS YELLOW, directed by Vilgot Sjöman, and starring Lena Nyman with a surprise cameo appearance of Dr. Marin Luther King, depicts the tone of sexuality, politics and class struggles of the 60s. Shot with an art-documentary lens, it zooms in on explicit sex scenes that began a censorship scandal which ultimately paved the way to free expression in films today. 

The Yellow comes from the Swedish Flag, which is Yellow and Blue. There is also a film called "I AM CURIOUS (Blue)"

I AM CURIOUS (YELLOW) 

 Wearing Yellow lingerie can inspire you; it is a physical, energetic color with vibrant flair.
