The Colours In Your Home : How They Affect Your Mood

Did you know that while you may not really pay any attention to the tones around you, they do affect your mood, every single day? Have you ever walked into a room and immediately felt calm? Immediately felt a little uncomfortable, or stressed? It probably has a lot to do with the colours used in that room. Colours are powerful indeed, affecting us in so many ways.

The Colours in Your Home: How They Affect Your Moods

Did you know that the colours you choose for your home kind of reflect your personality? And did you know that while you may not really pay any attention to the tones around you, they do affect your mood too, every single day.
Colours are powerful indeed, affecting us in so many ways. So you should carefully choose the colours for every room in your home.
Okay, so you may not really be in the mood for a new layer or shade of paint, but don’t worry, wall murals have you covered. Wall murals are available in so many designs, styles and shades.  You could keep them simple and stick to something geometric, or maybe even abstract; just splashes of colours on a plain background. Or you could go with something floral or an ethnic kind of look. For a calming effect, you can even go with scenes depicting flowing blue rivers or lush green colours. Remember, for all these murals, the colour with the greatest presence will have the most effect.
So you are now wondering what influence does each colour have on you? Colours affect in three main ways: neutral, active and passive.  You can match each colour to your desires and tastes as well as the purpose of the room in which it is being used. Generally, if your walls are decorated in light colours, the space looks bigger and brighter because light tones are airy and expansive, especially the pastel shades. Dark colours on the other hand have an intimating affect, reflecting warmth and sophistication. Let’s take a detailed look at some colours.

Red

Probably the best colour if you want to raise the energy levels in the room. The greater the intensity of the shade, the more and faster will the adrenaline pump. So if you want to stir up some thrill and excitement, go for a wall mural that features a design in reddish hues. Put the mural up in your dining room and living room; your family will come closer to each other. And oh, it creates a really good first impression by the way.

 

Yellow

The colour of happiness. Yellow portrays joys and uplifts mood.  You can have a yellowish toned mural in dining rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and halls; however, some studies also show that yellow can make people lose temper so be sure to add a harmonising colour to the space as well. Consider the striped mural design in the picture for example; it has some yellow, but it also has blues and purples so the overall effect is calming.

 

Blue

Blue is the colour of calmness and serenity. It is said to regulate blood pressure and normalises heart rates. While you can have blue in any room, it usually works best in the bedroom and bathroom, especially if you use it in combination with a contrasting colour.
