Did you know that different colors bring out different emotions and sensations? Understanding color psychology can help you to choose the right colors for your home:
Red is an aggressive, stimulating color, and it is very assertive. It’s a color that will draw attention, so use it with care.
Orange is dramatic, but not to the same degree as red. It stimulates your appetite and radiates warmth and life in a subtler way than red.
Yellow is a color that draws attention, as it’s bright, cheerful, and striking. Combine it with black, and it’s definitely a “sit up and take notice” color scheme.
Green is a natural color, one that brings to mind trees, bushes, plants, and natural life. Greens are wonderful as a base color, as they are neutral and pair well with reds, yellows, blues, and brown. It’s a solid, supporting color that blends well.
Blue is a solid, calming color that will breathe serenity and life into your home. It gives your home a dependable, committed feeling, and can add a touch of power and authority into any room. Great for office colors!
Purple is mysterious, spiritual, elegant, and eccentric all at once. It’s a creative color that shows a bold sense of fashion, but it’s not an easy color to work with!
Pink is sensual when it’s bright and romantic when it’s darker with more red. Choose your shade of pink according to the mood of the room.
Brown is rustic, timeless, and durable, and it adds an element of substance and stability to any room.
Black is both powerful and heavy, and is a dramatic color. Only use black when you want to contrast with white.
White is pure, clear, and simple, and is the brightest color in your home. It can add a light, airy feel to your décor.
