Colours in our lives

Psychological research supports the premise that colour affects the body in different ways. The following are some body changes that take place around colour:
  • BLUE slows the heart rate, suppresses hunger and reduces blood pressure.
  • RED increases blood pressure and motor-skills activities. It also sharpens the appetite.
  • YELLOW increases cardiopulmonary activity, so it is very exciting, and it can also be irritating to be around for some people.
  • GREEN (a mix of blue and yellow) is a well balanced colour, good for speech development. Good for contemplation, and a restful state.
  • PURPLE speaks to the intellect and is considered a very cerebral colour. Good for contemplation and for inner thought.

  • At home, colour and its placement also play a role in optimum home function.For example, a vibrant yellow or red bedroom will ensure a "less than perfect" night's sleep.
  • In general, quiet tones are best for a living room, a soft green or lavender would work well as they are comforting hues, conducive to contemplation and relaxation. I always suggest a foyer, or entrance be a warm, welcoming colour. The first impression of your home should make your guests feel comfortable...and your comfort will follow.
  • Remember that too much of one colour becomes tedious. It is the interaction of colours with each other that creates a satisfying mood in your environment. With so much open-concept building now it's often a challenge for the homeowner to consider using more than one colour throughout. Be brave, inject colour by painting one or two accent walls.
  • The rules in colour psychology are general, as everyone experiences colour in a completely personal way. Much in the same way smells can trigger a memory from our past...so can colour!

  • It's not a black and white world. Colour is all around us and we love it! It affects our moods… it lifts our spirits… it conveys our personalities.
