Using the fundamentals of colour psychology, I’ve put together my top tips to help you choose the perfect colours throughout your home:
1) Tap into your psyche
Think of a room in your home. How do you want to feel and behave in that space? Do you want to unwind and put your feet up? Do you want to be energised and motivated? Do you want to have lots of fun and laughter when entertaining?
2) Pick colours that enhance your feelings
With that in mind, look for colours that represent these feelings and behaviours to you.
Here are a few examples of some positive psychology behaviours that colour can evoke:
Soft greens may help you to relax and put your feet up
Vibrant yellows will lift your spirits and give you a boost of confidence
Calming soft blues to help you take a deep breath and sleep well
Energising red to get you up and moving
Lively orange to keep the fun social conversation going
