Have you ever wondered why the most used color in restaurants are yellow and red? And why white and blue are the preferred palettes for hospitals? Well, as most of us know, colors have a great impact on our moods and psychology. Red and yellow increases appetite, while white communicates cleanliness and professionalism. On the other hand, blue soothes and calms. In the same way colors are used by companies to effectively communicate a brand/message, you should also use colors create the right mood/ mood in your home’s spaces.
Here are the colors recommended for some areas in the house. You don’t necessarily have to go big; you can start by incorporating the palette with the use of accents or even with just one big piece that helps to draw attention.
1. Red – You may want to use this color palette in the kitchen to increase appetite or in the bedroom to inspire passion.
2. Green – The color of nature energizes and helps one to focus, which is why this is perfect for a home office setting. You may choose to paint your walls green or strategically place potted plants and blooms near your desk.
3. Yellow – Like the first rays of sunshine that bring light on a gloomy day, yellow helps boost confidence and optimism. It’s usually used in kitchens (to increase appetite), day rooms where children play, and the living room. Liven the mood in any area with a spruce of yellow.
4. Pink – Pink is not only reserved for the little girl’s room. Use it effectively to help calm emotions. It’s highly recommended to paint your prayer/meditation room or yoga space this color.
