Colour Psychology For Home Decor
Colours have a language and impact of their own, capable of affecting humans both physically and emotionally, thus impacting our mood significantly. That is why selecting a colour theme for decorating your home is so important. Let’s have a look at how some colours impact our home decor as well as our moods and spirits.
1 Sunshine Yellow: An Enriching Hue Sunshine yellow is most commonly affiliated with optimism and happiness, as it helps in activating memory, promoting creativity and stimulating human nervous system. Paint your walls in sunshine yellow and tone it down with various accents to get the best of this wonderful hue.
2 Muted Yellow: Roomy and Relaxing If bright yellow is not your preferred way to go, you can try muted yellow, a much neutral and paler shade of yellow. Another great benefit of muted yellow hue is that it adds to the roominess of a room, just like in this image, especially with big windows letting in plenty of light and white, bestowing small space of this living room with serenity and capaciousness.
3 Bold Red: Energizing and Dramatic Red, no matter which room it is painted in, contributes towards a romantic and passionate ambiance. You can add a dramatic flair by using bold red generously or can simply introduce mild cosiness in a place by using it subtly. This colour can work out especially well for teen bedroom decoration ideas.
4 Bold Pink: The Grownup Way Long gone are days when pink shouted ‘little girls’. In reality, this punchy colour has much more to offer even to adults. Just observe in this image below how bold pink adds playfulness to the ambiance of this room, bestowing it grownup youthfulness.
5 Peony Pink: Youthful and Energetic If you are looking for a true grownup pink ambiance in a room, there is nothing better than trying a saturated peony shade, just as in the image below. This hue blends in some energy, but in a mature feminine manner.
6 Lime Green: Fresh Burst of Energy Green, owing to its association with nature, speaks of life and renewal. It can be really versatile. It can help you create a refreshing, dramatic or inviting outlook in a room, depending on how you want to use it. Lime green as in the image below, will add freshness into every meal you take up in your dining area.
7 Cool Blue: Serenity If serenity is what you desire in any of your rooms, you better seek cool blue hues. In the image below, blue sofas across a wallpapered background ooze pure comfort and serenity, turning your living room into an irresistibly inviting place for your guests.
8 Sapphire Blue: A Powerful Way of Expression You will be surprised to see how a darker shade of blue can turn your room into something totally different and powerfully expressive. Sapphire blue walls in the image below clearly exhibit the impact of darker shades of blue in a room.
9 Purple: Vibrant Playfulness The image below clearly speaks of the vibrant playfulness purple can introduce in a room. Dark purple sofas are complemented well with a lighter shade of purple in the carpet, making a striking and playful focal point in this living room.
