Colour Me Happy!Published 22/02/2016Risky red or passionate purple?
Colours are fascinating! They can completely transform the look and feel of a room, plus they also influence our mood. If you are planning a new look for your space, you should be aware of how colours impact upon how we feel…
Green has both warming and cooling properties, offering a calming and stable influence. Darker greens are great as a serene choice for living areas. Limes bring a vibrant energy and a modern feel to kitchens and bathrooms. Green is a very versatile colour!
Yellow creates an inviting, warm and welcoming space. Do you know that it has a stimulating effect on the mind? Yellow is therefore a perfect colour for your office/study.
Blue offers calmness and serenity. Again, tones make a big difference. Deep blues signify intelligence and importance, great to create a feeling of sophistication and elegance within your home. Paler shades of blue are more classic, especially when blended with warm neutral colours – perfect for bathrooms.
Purple inspires creativity and imagination. Deeper shades create a feeling of drama and luxury. Lighter shades invoke a feeling of being special and have a softer, more relaxing feel. Pale shades of purple are perfect for bedrooms.
Red is a richly diverse colour. As well as inspiring love and romance, it also signifies danger and anger. Choose red as a focal point and a touch of luxury for your living room. (Deep reds were used by upper class Victorians to signify grandeur and prosperity.) A lovely red rug is a perfect way of bringing red into your room.
Cream shades blend well with most colours and are great to give an illusion of size and brightness to a room.
Whilst your moods can be influenced by colour, Interiors Monthly also points out that pale colours can create the impression of a larger space, whereas as deep, bold colours can seemingly ‘shrink’ your room.
