Room colors have a lot to do with our own personality and what we stand for,however not many of us seem to pay attention to the subtle psychological impact of colors on our moods and energy levels. We all have favorite colors that differ from those of other people within a degree. While some colors may be very interesting and lovely for us, for others they may be annoying or even
depressing. There are certain things that most people agree upon however when it comes to colors: they impact our moods. The following article will cover the basics of colors and what they inspire in us:
Red is known to help raise the energy, get us excited and more alert. It is an excellent choice for a living room or a dining room as it creates a nice atmosphere for a lively day or evening. It is known that red can stimulate the blood pressure and heart rate, thus making it a good choice for bedrooms, but only after dark. This allows us to enjoy the muted, warm colors for a romantic feeling.
Yellow is a warm, joyous color that reminds us of happiness, sunshine and innocence. It is a vibrant and nice choice for places such as dining rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and more. It is cheerful and energizing and it is something positive, but not when used too much as it is a powerful and too bright a color for any relaxation.
Universally connected to the sea, the sky and known for its calming effect, blue is a color often associated with wisdom and tranquility. Its calming and serene effect is often used in bathrooms, bedrooms and other places where people tend to need relaxation, however it is also a cool color which can be a bad choice for rooms that see little sunlight during the day. Such a combination would kill the mood after long exposure and should be avoided. For the social areas of the home warmer blues might be used, such as turquoise or cerulean as they are softer and more pleasant than dark blues.
One thing most people agree upon is that green is a color universally accepted as the most pleasant and relaxing one for human eyes. It is easy to implement in any room around your home, as it is both warm and calm in nature, emulating the outside world as much as possible without actually growing trees inside our homes.
Combining the cheerfulness of yellow and the rich, blood-pumping nature of red, orange is a great color for a room where one exercises and needs elevated energy levels combined with a good mood.
* Dark colors
Black, white, grays and browns are excellent tools for accentuating angles, corners and other parts of a room. The earthy browns can combine wonderfully with greens and other colors for a contrasted experience that makes your home something truly unforgettable and deep.
