Colors are known to be an important part of creating a mood within a space and for good reason! Not only does incorporating colors into your home look great…They actually have a subconscious effect on the brain.
Blue has been scientifically proven in studies to lower our heart rates, an Australian study in 2015 proved that exposure to blue light lowered participant’s blood pressure. Light and pastel blues can feel quite cold if you want a warmer, cozier feel; opt for warmer shades such as turquoise.
Yellow catches the sunlight and brightens your home, reminding us of happiness-inducing sunshine. Yellow is also linked to energy and vitality, so can be used to give you a lift if you feel lethargic.
Green is associated with prosperity and nature; like blue, it provides a calming effect whilst lowering the heart rate by simulating daylight. Green is thought to be the most natural color to the eye and encourages composure, clarity and restores the mind.
Orange is an exciting color associated with creativity and energy. If you require some enthusiasm in your home, try infusing it with some zesty orange statement décor.
