Welcome to the site of PSYCHOLOGY!
Do you see all sorts of colours around you? From red to green and from green to blue, every different colour leaves a different impression on us. The effect of colours and their impact on our everyday lifestyles is undoubtly great -- can you imagine a life without colours? Our site deals with the effects of colours and what they represent to us, while delving into the world of colours. For starters, let's get you interested with colour psychology at YOUR HOME!
Maybe you have never thought of it. Not surprising though, since most of us take it for granted. White may be a nice, pure colour, but having it on our walls everywhere we go does make it boring or evasive. Besides, who ever notices the walls and ceilings?
It’s time to make a change! Since colours have such large effects on us, why not take it home and work Colour Psychology to our advantage?
Paint colour is more important to our emotions and attitudes than we normally would imagine. Colours can make us feel warm, cold, nervous, relaxed, invigorated, hungry… The list goes on! For instance, reds and yellows are warm, active, youthful and invigorating. Blues and greens are cool, calm, passive and relaxing. Different colour families have their own personalities which in turn influence our emotions. Colour also has the power to change the shape and size of the furniture and even the room. Thus, the choice is really ours to decide what kind of feelings we want to have when we go back home and what kind of house we have. The best thing is that paint is cheap as compared to getting branded designer furniture!
In order to have a visually pleasant home, the rule of thumb would be to blend your favourite colours into a suitable combination. Simple as it may sound, this is one of the most difficult steps for the non-artistic layperson. Trends should not affect our choices as it is more important for the owner of the house to enjoy the colours. Besides, fashion goes in and out.
It is important to consider the psychological values of the colour choices. This is especially so for the main colour of a room. The amount is also important as some colours can have negative effects on emotions when in excess. If you cannot decide what colours to pick, magazines and fabrics can be good sources of inspiration. The colour wheel can also help with coordination.
There are three types of colour groups, active, passive and neutral. Light colors, like are expansive and airy; they make rooms seem larger and brighter. Dark colors, like are sophisticated and warm; they give large rooms a more intimate appearance. Neutral colours include light shades of that blend into the environment.
