Let’s talk colors!
Picking out a color for your home seems like one of the most obvious steps in home décor, right? Haven’t we all imagined a quaint sky-blue cottage that matched the color of the sky, or perhaps a soothing eggshell white that your family can never tell apart from powder white? *scoffs*
Yes, we all have the color part sorted during the most preliminary part of home décor, but we rarely ever think about the impact of colors in our living space. For example, that instant uplift in our mood and spirits when we step out on a sunny day is not just the weather; it’s the green of the plants, the soothing snow-white of the clouds, the brilliantly yellow of the daisies poking from the sidewalk, and the harmonious blend of it all to fill up our senses.
Imagine having the same effect when you walk into a room of your house, it’s wonderful, isn’t it? I’m here to tell you that you can achieve a similarly pleasing effect with a little understanding of colors and how they work and complement each other.
Here’s the real question, can your wall color affect your mood?
It totally does – to a huge extent! It’s amazing to realize how color invokes emotions in us. If you’ve seen the movie Inside Out, you’d get me. Wall colors have an instant effect on mood, and you can communicate your style and personality through them as well.
Pick the perfect color for your home based on these factors
So, how does one decide how to pick the right color – given that it has such a huge impact on our everyday life?
Some important factors to keep in mind when deciding on a color are the size, dimension, and purpose of the room. Colors can help a small room look airy and spacious, impart warmth or a cushy, comfortable feel, and even add texture and depth.
Another important thing is the location of the room. Yes, the natural light and position of the window factor in when deciding the color theme. Take a north-facing room for example. A north-facing room will not receive sunlight throughout the day, so a warmer color palette will beautifully make up for it.
On the other hand, a south-facing room might get a little too much sunlight, with the room baking in heat in the harsh afternoon sun. Going for a cool color will perfectly complement the natural light coming in throughout the day.
Let the colors take over!
Now that we have considered the factors governed by the room, let’s talk a bit about YOU. How do you want to feel when you enter a room? As a mother, I know how hard it can be to catch a break and calm your nerves when you’ve got so much to deal with. Won’t it be comforting to have calming hues of blue in the bedroom, engulfing you with tranquility while also igniting a creative spark and trust in the process? Blue is famously known to invoke all these emotions.
For the kitchen, neutral tones on the wall with accents of yellow, red, or orange in the décor can make your meals more appetizing – oh yes, notice the same color tones in restaurants when you plan to eat out the next time!
