Colour psychology

I have the bug for decorating at the moment and just before Christmas I took to painting the bedrooms. Next on my list will be the living room, but I’m waiting for the summer when I will have more time spare to tackle that one.

I love choosing colours for each room, setting the theme and giving the room that feel of being your own space, it’s a lovely feeling once you’ve made a space your own. I tend to choose colours that I find pretty and which make me feel happy. Some people choose colours based on the latest trend or to fit in with the furniture they already have.

I hadn’t given much thought to the emotional effects of colour, but it seems that colours can have quite an impact on us and our feelings. I was quite interested to find some information relating to the psychology of colours, the chart below shows that the mauve shades I have introduced into my bedroom are cool colours, bringing peace and tranquillity to the space, although for me I just wanted to bring some retro chic into the room. I am naturally drawn towards the warmer colours, although this is mainly because claret and amber come under this section and I’m always drawn to Bradford City colours anyway!

Why not take a look at the chart below and see what colours you are drawn to and what those colours represent.
