See how wall colors can change your mood.

Home colors and your mood.

So, is it time for you to finalize a paint color for your walls? Are you unsure of what to choose? Well, this is probably the most critical decision you will make in the whole process of doing up your home. The furniture, upholstery, décor will all depend on this. Also, color has an impact on our psychology and influences our emotions, our actions and how we respond to various people, things and ideas.
As Oscar Wilde said, “Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unsullied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.”




Hence, when choosing your interior wall colors don't neglect your own personal preferences or the colors that make you feel comfortable and satisfied.




Your choices may lead you to a soft, earthy, natural environment; an intense, brightly energized space; an ambiance of quiet sophistication; or a fun place for quirky playfulness. Use your favorites as accents, or splash them everywhere. Feel free to express your personality in your choices. After all, this is your space, so color it to your tastes without a worry. And remember this quote by Picasso Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? No. Just as one can never learn how to paint.”      So whatever you choose is your own personal preference … and somehow the colors will always sing!


Here’s a list of colours and the characteristics they reflect…this could be your guide or starting point when you are making your choices:


If you need a boost in energy and/or confidence, use a shade of Red as an accent wall. This vibrant color stimulates the nervous system and generates energy. But stay away from red if you have high blood pressure or get angry easily.


If you want to give your room a sense of peace and space, paint the walls Blue. Its soft, soothing tone will help you relax and meditate. But blue should be avoided if you tend to be depressed or low on energy.


A burst of citrusYellow in the dining room perks up appetite and gets the digestive juices flowing. It is also the color of cheer, so your meal is happier.




Orange is a vibrant, welcoming color. Psychologists advise using it in areas where you entertain guests. Burnt orange walls, orange glasses or napkins, a playful set of coasters… imagine the festive feel of it all!


Try green accents in your bathroom. It is the color of peace, and suggests freshness. Just a couple of indoor plants and a lime-green towel can evoke vitality.


Purple is the color of prosperity, because it gives a rich, luxurious feel. Use it in the living room for a calm, sophisticated feel.
