How The Colour Of Your Room Affects Your Mood
Tip: Don't paint your bedroom red
7 March 2017
You may choose the colour of your walls and accents in your room depending on your taste and preference. Or you may choose colours depending on the seasonal trends. But there's also a third way you can choose colours that dominate your space - psychology.
Colour psychology is by no means a new concept. Several studies over the years have found that colours can have an impact on our mood and thinking. Here's how the following colours affect your mood.
The colour pink is known to soothe and ease the mind making it a great choice for your bedroom.
Yellow is the colour of happiness. This warm, vibrant and energizing colour works great in kitchens and living rooms.
You have to be careful with yellow though. In the above image it is an overkill, however in the image below it is used as an accent, which makes it so much more beautiful.
The colour blue has long been associated with productivity and intelligence which makes it a great choice for your home office/study. As blue is the colour of the ocean and the sky, it has a tranquil effect on the mind which makes it ideal for bathrooms and bedrooms too.
The colour green is associated with nature and the outdoors and has proven to be a stress reliever.
This colour works best as a statement and what better statement than some beautiful plants to liven up your space?
Red is a colour that is often associated with aggression which makes it a less than ideal choice for the bedroom. However, when used in dining rooms it can stimulate appetite and when used in living rooms it encourages conversation.
