Every colour triggers a different emotion or mood, whether you realise it or not. Below is a very brief summary outlining how each colour makes us feel.
Blue: A calming colour that can make you feel centred, relaxed and serene. It is known to help lower blood pressure, clear the mind and help steady a person’s breathing. Be careful as pastel blues can come across as cold. Light, warm blues are great and are easily balanced with warm hues and furnishing.
Yellow: Brightens your mood and increases your energy. Yellow can catch the sunlight and leave you with an uplifting feeling of joy.
White: Not necessarily an energy nor calm inducing colour, white gives a happy medium that leaves you feeling clean. White rooms give an automatic feel of cleanliness and purity. The colour white itself stands for protection, innocence and goodness.
Green: This is a great colour for a home office as it symbolises prosperity and helps to reduce anxiety. It is one of the most restful colours for your eyes and is known to be restorative, mind-clearing and encourages composure. It can also creates an outdoorsy, natural feel if mixed with plenty of plants and matching decoration.
Purple: A rich and dramatic colour that creates a romantic, mysterious and luxurious vibe and is great for sparking creativity. Paler colours such as lavender and lilac are calming and light.
Orange: An exciting colour that brings bursts of energy and enthusiasm. It’s a great colour to exercise around, but not so good for rooms in which we need to calm down and focus.
Red: Bold and intense, red is known to raise blood pressure, heartbeat and cause irritability, but it is a great colour to use for rooms where you plan to socialise.
Pink: Pink can have a calming effect on the nerves and helps relieve feelings of anger, aggression and neglect. It is said that the longer that you are exposed to pink the calmer you become.
