Does The Colour of your Walls affect Your Mood?

Updated: Jan 13, 2020

"Colours, like features, follow the changes of the emotions," the artist Pablo Picasso once remarked.

Artists have long believed that colours can certainly evoke specific moods. Looking back (in the early 1900’s) what began as the art of decorating, connecting form and function, over the years it has evolved into so many different areas of interior design.

Interior designers naturally embraced colour as a powerful communication tool.

So what's the psychology behind each colour – how it affects your feelings and how to choose the right one?


1. Blue

Blue is known as cool and calming colour which makes you feel relaxed, focused and gives you sense of stability. It works well in our living room where we spend most of our time resting.


2. White

If you want your home to feel more spacious and airy white is the prefect colour. Painting your ceiling white gives the illusion of the higher ceiling. White rooms also give the feeling of cleanliness and purity.

It's a multipurpose colour and it can be used in any room, but I think it looks great in bedroom or bathroom particularly.


3. Yellow

Yellow depending on what undertone - it can be warm or cool. Warm yellow has an orange undertone, while cool yellow has a green undertone.

It increases your energy and leaves you with an uplifting feeling of happiness.

It goes well in your Kitchen - where we definitely need good vibes just before the first coffee.


4. Green

Green is one of the most relaxing colours, it represents the colour of the nature. It restores your energy and helps you to clear your mind.

With that said – this a great colour for your home office, where you need to keep your focus.


5. Purple

Historically known as a colour of royalty and luxury. Deep purple gives a feeling of romance and mystery. While lighter purple gives more sense of calmness. It is often used in bedrooms.
