How colour influences your space and wellbeing

Colour is all around us and in our latest article Style My Home looks at the different colours to see what they can bring to your home. Choosing the right colour and tone is key as it can change your mood, evoke happiness and promote wellbeing. The colour and design of your home should be a reflection of you and your family and chosen carefully it can create the atmosphere you are looking for in any given space. Try introducing a burst of explosive colour and décor to transform your home.

Colours in the spotlight

White – Undoubtedly this colour personifies clean, and signifies a fresh new start encompassing spaciousness. It’s a colour that beautifully combines with natural elements such as wooden floors, wool rugs and colourful cushions to bring warmth into the design.

Blue – Promotes intellectual thoughts and is perfect for an office or study area where you read, write and think. It has a calming feel and can be a good base colour to use with soft pastels or why not use more vibrant blues as splashes to make an impact.

Red – Stimulates eating, and is perfect for a more formal dining area. Eating Room Red no 43 from Farrow and Ball is a classical eating room colour. However, one word of caution, unless you have a large room, take care with red and use it sparingly. It isn’t the best colour for bedrooms.

Greens, Yellows, Oranges and Pinks

Green – This is a most harmonious colour and can be suitable for living rooms and especially bedrooms. Again it works splendidly with natural elements, wood and rattan.

Yellow – Linked to the nervous system and therefore stimulates mental activity so is a great colour for working places, kitchens and studies.

Orange – An energising colour, which will bring life into any space, and it’s great to add pops of colour, such as cushions and throws.

Pink – Creates calm, love and is a very peaceful colour for bedrooms and living rooms. So that it doesn’t look too feminine, blend it with greys and black.
