Let your abode enrich with positivity, welcoming vibes and perfect mood through colour therapy.
If the décor experts are to be believed, colour or chromo-therapy is said to have great impact on our moods as well as lives. It goes without saying that one must be a tad attentive while selecting colours for different rooms of the home. One wrong selection may destroy the serenity of your personal space. It can also influence the energy of the room. Before you paint your room with any random colour, read on to know what suits and how it can affect the ambiance, mood, energy of the space.
The first thing to keep in mind that to make your home look beautiful you do not always have to follow what is in fashion. Colours fall in and out of fashion. It might be a little intimidating for you if you are a beginner, however, worry not! Pick up the colours which reflect your personality and define you. Just blend those colours into an attractive combination.
Red: This hue is said to be the ultimate passion simulator, a symbol of confidence, pride and strength. Nothing can get you down with this colour. It beautifully compliments any light and can make rooms feel spacious. Since stir up passion, it is usually recommended for bedrooms. For other rooms, it is good if used in combination i.e. one or two walls red, the others white or as an accent colour.
Blue: It is believed, blue calms down the blood pressure level and stabilizes the heart rate. That’s why, applying blue in your rooms stimulates relaxation. Blue works best with a lot of natural light and wooden floors. Never use dark blues in small rooms because it can make small rooms seem very small. At the same time, if you go for a lightershade as the primary colour in a room, complement it with warm hues for the furnishings and fabrics. Although blue is highly recommended for bathrooms and bedrooms, it can also be used in other areas of your home. To incorporate a relaxed and calming effect in the social areas such as family rooms, living rooms and large kitchens consider warmer blues, like periwinkle, or bright blues, such as cerulean or turquoise.
Green: It is known as the most restful colour for the eyes. While dark green with lots of natural light encourages unwinding feeling, simultaneously, light green can make your rooms appear brighter even with no natural light. In a family room or living room, green refreshes the mood; in the kitchen, it cools things down. As a great stress-buster and a symbol of fertility, this wonder colour also can be used in bedrooms.
Yellow: This colour has the power to brighten up any space instantly. Yellow works fantastically with any light and especially with most floors. Posters also work well against it.
As a mood enhancer, it is great for those who are feeling down. This cheery colour is perfect for kitchens, dining rooms, and bathrooms, where happy colours are energizing and inspiring. In halls, entries, and small spaces, yellow can feel spacious and warm.
