Colour Psychology

One of our favourite topics to discuss, colour psychology in the home.  A lot of people don’t think about the effects colours have on them and choose favourites like a bright red in the bedroom and then wonder why they’re unable to unwind and feel calm in their surroundings.



The Power of Colour

Room colour can impact our moods and our thoughts and affect us in many ways, depending on age, gender, ethnic background, and climate. Certain colours or even groups of colours tend to receive a common reaction from most people, which is why it’s so important to choose colours wisely when it comes to decorating.

Colour has the power to change the shape and size of furnishings, as well as the shape and size of the room itself. Colour trends come and go, but you don’t have to worry about trends to have a beautiful home. How?


When deciding a colour for your room ask yourself
What mood do you want to create?
What colours match that mood?
