What do the colours in your home really mean?
Scientists have recognised that there is a strong link between colour and a humans mood and behaviour when in the company of that colour.
In todays blog we will be exploring the most popular colours to have in rooms and what emotions these colours can bring.
The Meaning of Yellow
Yellow is a refreshing and vibrant colour; which is very popular in UK homes.
Yellow associates with sunshine and communicates
happiness. The colour itself can promote cheerfulness, creativity and positive thinking. We recently read an interesting article written by Angela Wright
(psychologist of Queen Mary's Hospital) on the meaning of colour; we found out that primary colours such as Yellow, trigger psychological feelings in
regard to the body, mind and emotions; Yellow supposedly gives us a boost of energy and even provides us with mental clarity!
Fun fact: people who pick the colour yellow love learning, and live for a positive life.
The Meaning of Blue
BBC Homes reported that the colour Blue is the most popular colour used in rooms by homeowners. Our research has suggested
that people are drawn to different shades of blue such as turquoise and teal due to its attractiveness and soothing manner. Light blue
and pastel blues have psychologically been labelled as soothing colours which can promote intellectual thought and increase productivity...
To encourage relaxation and productivity in social areas of your home, blue would be best in Living rooms or large kitchens.
Fun Fact: The colour blue is said to bring down blood pressure and lower your heart rate!
The Meaning Of Red
Red is a bright, passionate, overpowering colour which is considered to be very stimulating! Red has been associated with
passion, warmth, optimism, energy and adventure; the colour red is the bipolar opposite of blue and is not recommended in a room
meant for relaxation. Red is said to stimulate hunger aswell as promote a sociable and lively feeling.
So, what room would be best red?
Alon Interiors would highly recommend using red in a Kitchen or Dining area!
Fun Fact: Those who pick the colour red are said to be courageous and confident!
Wonder how can these colours work in your kitchen?
