Colors are always tied up with your emotions and when it comes to our house, the environment of our own house is always very comfortable and safe. Even after a long journey we always think of our bedroom or our cozy couch where we could just lie around and feel free .As, Life begins at home, and it should be a place that brings you happiness.
I am person who loves to explore research about design psychology, According to some of my recent research’s:
The amount of time we’ve spent at home in recent months, there’s no denying the importance of turning your home into a personal oasis. After all, the state of our homes can directly influence the state of our minds. Our visual surroundings have a profound impact on our mental health our visual surroundings have a profound impact on our mental health.
On a basic level, of light and color affect mood: “Light colors may make a space feel more open whereas darker colors may make people feel more closed in. Thus, for those quarantining right now, it might seem to make sense to use lighter colors so as not to feel so confined. A TV room painted a darker color, however, may seem ‘cozier’ and thus entice us to cuddle up together.”
And while certain colors imply certain ideas green for nature, blue for calm, Well these aren’t universal, for some, a light blue bedroom might have a calming effect but for others, light blue might trigger memories of a childhood bedroom during an unhappy stage of their life. The important thing is to become aware not only of what may look good design-wise in a space but what makes you feel good. The color you paint your walls isn’t just a matter of aesthetics. It’s a tool that can be leveraged to affect emotions and behaviour.
If you like the idea of using color to create an emotionally healthy home, color consultants say you should first consider the primary function of each room. Next, pick a predominant color. Although it can’t be proven scientifically, color consultants say some hues work better than others at encouraging certain activities. We have been conditioned from early on, be it culturally and geographically, or be it other physiological factors which may influence how we perceive various colors.
Let’s consider some specific spaces:
- Living room and foyer paint colors : Warm tones like reds, yellows, and oranges, and earth tones like brown and beige often work well in both the living room and foyer, because they’re though to stimulate conversation. These are colors that encourage people to sit around you feel the warmth, the connection with other people.
- Kitchen paint colors : Color consultants say that if you have fond memories of spending time in the kitchen when you were a kid, it might make sense to recreate the color scheme in your grown-up kitchen. “If you grew up in a blue-and-white kitchen and have great memories, blue and white may be the best colors for you and your family
If there’s no particular paint scheme you remember fondly, reds and yellows can be great colors in the kitchen as well as in the living room and foyer. But a great ambience always makes a great difference for our wellbeing, usually when we consider dark colors , it makes a room look smaller as well as , quite high chances for our mood to swings from one end to another. Even maintaining a clean surround has a lot of impact on us. Even when we consider each individual’s environment the way in which they have brought up in their life , the memories considering all aspects can gave a great influence on their mental health. As a calm house equals a calm heart equals a calm life.
