Your home is your safe space, and it should reflect your personality and give off warmth to make you want to return to it after a hard day at work. The state of the house’s interior, the arrangement of furniture and decorative ornaments, as well as different types of colors, can greatly influence the mood or personality of its inhabitants. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn some of the reasons to have a colorful interior.
Colors and their meanings
Each color has its meaning. For example, the color yellow usually refers to warmth and good mood, green to nature, and pink to romance and femininity.
Despite the fact that the meaning of certain colors can change from one culture to another, we can still talk about the concept that is defined by what is called “color psychology”.
Furthermore, according to the definition given on Wikipedia, “Color psychology is the study of human perception of color and the impact of color on human activity.”
Light colors soothe the mind.
Having a clear mind is, arguably, one of the secrets to the joy of living. In other words, the more peaceful our mind is, the better we feel. For example, if something stressful has happened, there has been an incident that needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. Thus, staying or resting in a clear, soft, and pleasant room helps to relax and to think better. As a result, one can move on more easily and will be more likely to enjoy life.
Colorful decoration can be suitable for any room.
Colorful decoration is an excellent solution when you want to optimize the brightness of the lighting and/or visually enlarge the spaces, especially since it can be suitable for any room.
Adopting such a decoration for the living room can be synonymous with sharing joy and a warm welcome to the guests. In addition, having a colorful decoration in the bedroom can help to have a good mood morning wake up. In the bathroom, it can help to relax and have a good time, in other words, to have a nice bath or shower. In a child’s room, the different colors will influence the personality of the child. And this from early childhood. Thus, nude colors and light shades are the most popular for the walls of a baby’s room.
Colorful decoration can be adapted to most styles.
Like ethnic decorating, the bohemian decorating style is a colorful decoration par excellence. Bohemian decorating is characterized by a combination of light, warm and bright colors, by the adoption of patterned and colored coverings, as well as by choice of natural materials.
We can also associate the colorful decoration with Scandinavian decoration. If Scandinavian decoration is originally distinguished by choice of material (wood) and colors (pure), it is not impossible to bring color while keeping the nature of the decoration. Moreover, this option is increasingly adopted to bring pep and dynamism into the room.
A chic and/or vintage interior can also be a colorful interior. For example, you can combine a black leather sofa with a vintage coffee table (trendy 60s, for example) and two velvet armchairs. A colorful and patterned wallpaper for the wall covering and a laminated wooden floor highlight the chic style of the room.
