Studies done on the symbolic meaning of the color yellow have consistently noted that the primary association is with the sun. It might seem obvious to think that a sunny yellow would lend a dimly lit room the radiance it lacks. This will not work though, and an ochre such as this one, which is modest in its light requirements, is the better choice for rooms with strong shadows or dim lighting. While the sunny yellow will be cool and gray in shadows, this natural ochre will be luminous under any conditions of lighting.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
