What different wall colors mean

December 18, 2017

We find that many of our clients struggle when selecting a color for the interior painting of their home.   Some say the selection of a color represents our emotional and behavior conduct.  Below you'll find some insights from paint psychology to assist you in selecting your colors for your living spaces.  Please note, that emotional responses to some colors may be individual, as variances in cultural importance, as well as personal preferences, can play a part in our opinions. Here are some of the usually held concepts to color psychology:

 

Blue is known to have a sedating or calming effect. It has even been said that blue shades can lower the temperature of your body, slow your pulse rate, and even decrease your desire. Due to these bases, blue shades are ideal for creating comforting surroundings in your bedroom. (I say lets paint the whole house BLUE, I think I can stop reading now???)!

 

Red is possibly the most motivating of paint colors. It is said to stir up energy and excitement, as well as physical reactions to the color can contain increased heart rate and respiration. However, the colors can suggest different responses depending on the context and shade, as it can be linked with deep emotions of love or anger. It can still be a good selection for a bedroom or dining/living space and works well on accent walls.

 

Green also contains a cheering effect, and it is also related to vigor and health. It stirs up emotions of the natural world, as well as its similarity to vegetables, makes it a better choice for kitchens, dining rooms, and bedrooms.

 

Purple may be most efficiently used in quiet shades or others with a red trace as more strange color. Purple is a lot related to creativity and royalty.

 

Yellow is well-known for interior paint shade, possibly because it emotes the most pleasure. Sunny yellow paint colors are inclined to suggest feelings of optimism and happiness. Therefore, it’s appropriate for almost any part of your house.

 

Black is frequently best used in small quantity, as a conventional use of black on trim or accent pieces can create an elegant, sophisticated look. However, too much use of black color may express feelings of depression or dullness.

 

Orange is a different, unusual color that when used correctly can stir up feelings of warmth and energy. Accents of orange color are an excellent selection for social areas for example dining or living rooms.

 

Brown is said to carry about thoughts of security and stability. Natural browns, tans, and beiges can add a calming and organic feeling to approximately any room.

 

White is linked with cleanliness and purity. It creates contrast when used on trim alongside other colors. Keep in mind when choosing your colors that white colors usually have some undertone, as only a few paint colors are pure white in reality.

 

Gray is the most famous neutral colors for interiors because of its versatility and elegance. It is linked with intellect and wisdom. Warm grays lean to be more motivating, while cool grays stir up feelings of coolness.
