Colors In The Interiors And Their Effects On Our Moods

So are you interested how different colors in the interiors can influence the overall mood? It is not only about which colour you prefer, but the ones that might be the best choice for a particular type of a room, whether it is a bedroom or a living room. The orientation of the room is also important - North facing rooms will gain some warmth with warm colours and opposite is also true. Check out our gallery.

Neutral colors like white, black, grey or cream not only are consistent colours that hardly ever will be out of fashion, they also help to reduce the intensity of the bright and active colors, like red, orange or yellow. 

Yellow is an energetic color, suitable for a living room or the kitchen. Yellow can also help increase the feeling of warmth in north oriented rooms or rooms which lack sunshine. In large areas,  it can cause irritability and impatience. It’s always good to combine it with a neutral colour. 

Light pastel blue is calming color.  It softens the breathing and the heartbeat. In southern oriented rooms,  blue evokes a feeling of reducing heat. Blue needs to be adjusted with warm and neutral colors. 

Red is the most energetic color of them all. Very suitable in meeting rooms, because it makes people gather together while it is absolutely not recommended for bedrooms. 

Green is another calming color. Perhaps you‘ve noticed green in light shades in hospitals. It helps to relax and works well in bedrooms as well. 

Orange,  similar to red, evokes excitment. It work well for a living room. 

Purple,  like lavender,  brings peace and works well for sleeping.
