How happy does your space make you feel?

Updated: Oct 9, 2021

Every colour triggers a different emotion or mood, whether you realise it or not. When creating your mood board for a room, think how you want to feel in that space. Below is a brief guide outlining how each colour makes us feel.

Every colour creates an emotion.

Blue - Known to help lower blood pressure!

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 - Increases your energy

Brightens your mood and increases your energy. Yellow can catch the sunlight and leave you with an uplifting feeling of joy.

White - Leaves you feeling clean

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 - Helps to reduce anxiety

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 - Great for sparking creativity

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 - Brings bursts of energy

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 - Known to raise blood pressure

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 - Relieves feelings of anger

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.
