Paint Color and Mood Psychology, part 2

Paint Color and Mood Psychology, part 2

Several weeks ago we shared some color and mood psychology and discussed 4 colors; blue, yellow, white and green. Today we are sharing information about 4 more colors. See below how these paint colors can effect the ambiance and mood of a room and those in it!

(continued from 6/8/18 entry)

5. Purple

Purple is a rich, dramatic color that is historically the color of royalty and luxury. Deep purples give off a very romantic, mysterious and luxurious vibe and are great for sparking creativity.

While deep purples aren't the best for the bedroom, where you want the mind to relax, lighter purples such as lavender and lilac are better options as they are calming and light.

6. Orange

Orange is a very exciting color that brings a burst of energy and enthusiasm. It's a great color to exercise around, but not so good for living rooms or bedrooms where we want to wind down.

Orange can also stimulate your appetite so, if you're trying to be a little more healthy and calorie conscious, we wouldn't recommend this color for your kitchen.

7. Red

While many people link red to romance and roses, it is also linked to hostility and rage. Red is known to raise blood pressure, heart beat and irritability.

It's a great color to use for socializing – especially around Christmas – and we would suggest that you keep this color to social rooms as opposed to rooms that are meant to be for relaxing.

8. Pink

Interestingly enough, there is such a thing called the Pink Effect. This is when exposure to large amounts of pink can have a calming effect on the nerves and helps relieve feelings of anger, aggression and neglect.

Pink has the opposite effect to its primary color, red, as the longer you are exposed to it, the calmer you will become. Lighter pinks are great for children’s rooms and promote feelings of love, playfulness and kindness.
