Have you ever looked around and noticed that many major brands utilize similar colors? A huge part of learning design is color theory. Learning how colors affect mood and overall atmosphere can go a long ones. Color can make a huge difference even when choosing the decor and furniture in our El Paso. Take a look at these facts on the different effects of various shades and hues.

What Exactly is Color Psychology?

Visible color is made up of a single wavelength. When light combines, it can create other colors. Some colors even cancel each other out and create white. When looking at color it is important to remember that color holds cultural importance, too. In the U.S. white is a color that symbolizes purity, but in European and some Asian cultures white is worn for mourning.

Choosing the Right Color for Furniture and Decor

When you are choosing the furniture and design style for your home, you should strongly consider color theory. Different colors can indeed invoke different moods for you and your family. Take a look at the moods these commonly used colors can create:

Red: Words used to describe red are warm, passionate and intense! It can evoke strong emotions like love or anger. Many food companies use red as it is known to create hunger.

Blue: Blue is a shade that is widely loved by many people. It is also a color that represents calm. It can also convey a regal, professional or intelligent feel. It is a go to for many corporations trying to build trust through branding.

Green: Green is a calming color associated closely with nature. It can be used to create ideas of rebirth and renewal. It can be used to create a calm, pleasing mood.

Yellow: Yellow is a color known for happiness. The iconic happy face is yellow and the bright happy sun in the corner of drawings is yellow. It can be attention grabbing as well. Surprisingly, too much yellow can make babies feel fussy or cry more than normal.

How to Use Color for Evoking Mood

If you want to be bold and create a mood using color, the walls are the best place to start. Be sure to paint a small patch in different areas of the room to test how it looks in different lighting and different times of the day. Royal blue for a room or accent wall is currently a popular choice. This can convey a regal, cozy feel in a room. If you aren’t look for a bold look, or perhaps want to stay timeless, consider adding bright pops of color throughout a room. A small piece of furniture like an accent chair or a wall hanging can be a bright shade of red. You can pick neutrals like grey or brown for couches and use accents as well as rugs and hangings to add color. It can also be fun to create palettes with either matching or accenting colors.
