Nandina Home & Design’s Color Psychology
Have you ever stopped to think about how color can help you set the mood for your interior spaces? Whether you are looking to create a welcoming and friendly environment, or perhaps a space that’s quite relaxing, there’s a perfect color for you.
Before you begin to paint and select fabrics and furnishings, take a look at some of Nandina Home & Design’s color psychology information below. It can help you select the perfect color for a fabulous room.
- Orange, like red, tends to warm a room, but in a more friendly and welcoming way. As a result, paints in various shades and tints of orange work well in living rooms and family rooms.
- Yellow is also warm and welcoming, but it is more attention- getting than either red or orange. For this reason, it is a good paint color to use in poorly lit foyers or dark hallways.
- Blue, which is part of the cool color palette, makes us feel calm and tranquil, so it is ideal for use in bedrooms. But since blue works as an appetite suppressant (perhaps because there are few blue foods) it is not the best option for a dining room … unless you’re on a diet.
You can find more color psychology information on the Nandina Home & Design website. This basic information can serve as a jumping off point for selecting the right colors for your space.
