The Psychology of color in Interior Design.

Have you ever been wondering what does your house color mean about you? If yes, I have a few answers for you! Color psychology is the theory that colors can affect how you feel, think and act. That's why, today, I'm gonna explain the meaning of colors.


Yellow is the color of optimism. It encourages hope, cheerfulness, and happiness, helping us to feel rejuvenated and refreshed. Contrary to popular belief, yellow is not a soothing color, but rather a stimulating one. It makes a person want to get up and move. It’s not a good color for a child’s playroom for example. In a bedroom, it will make it harder to fall asleep. Yellow can be perfectly used in a kitchen, it can increase energy.


Red increases appetite and can accelerate a person's heart rate. Reds can cause a sense of restlessness, so this is not a color you want to use a lot of in someplace like a bedroom. In feng shui, red front doors symbolize good luck, that's why it's very common to see red doors.


Orange is a combination of yellow and red and is considered an energetic color. Orange calls to mind feelings of excitement, enthusiasm, and warmth. Orange can be a great color for a children's playroom or a fitness room.


The loving one. Pink is a considerate and non-threatening color that strongly represents feelings of love and nurturing. It's a soft and delicate color that people usually associate with a child's room.


Historically, purple was the color that was occupied by the wealthy and noble, offering up a sense of royalty and wisdom. Purple is the color of creativity. If someone wants to tap into creativity, they should surround themselves with purple for inspiration. Proven to improve your love life, purple can definitely be added to a bedroom.


Mostly known for helping to promote relaxation and peace, like other earth colors—this is the color of the sky. Blues are a great choice for any room where you want serenity, bedroom, living room or even a bathroom.


As another earth color, green is also calming. The color green relates to balance and harmony. From a color psychology perspective, it is the great balancer of the heart and the emotions, creating equilibrium between the head and the heart. From a meaning of color perspective, green is also the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth. Green can be added to any room.


Brown is considered a neutral, but if it is deep and saturated, it can make a person feel more moody than happy. Lighter shades of brown make for happier interiors—think tan. Nudes can be perfect for a living room.


Grey is the color of maturity and professionalism. Darker shades of grey symbolize conservatism and elegance. It's definitely a color for an office.


The confident one. For many, white symbolize the feeling of security, protection, and cleanliness. People who love the color white are independent and self-reliant. You can easily play with different textures to create a harmonious white interior.


Black is a popular color in retail. In color psychology, black's color meaning is symbolic of mystery, power, elegance, and sophistication. You can easily add some black touch in any interiors.
