Color impacts every aspect of our lives, from the world around us to the comforting surroundings of our homes, color is part of who we are. We often hear about a “color story” in reference to interior design. It stands to reason that the impact of the colors in our home’s interior is not only on our story but also impacts ourselves and how we experience life within our dwelling.
Color Has An Energy Of Its Own
Regardless of fashion and trends which can come in and go out of style quickly, colors possess an energy that has the ability to influence our moods and affect our mindset. It is for this reason that traditionally, dining room walls were painted in tones of reds. Red is known to increase appetite and excite and awaken the senses, making it perfect for the room where we wish to enjoy beautiful food with the ones we love.
The color red, with it’s spirited energy, can also be too harsh for areas where we desire a more calming feel, as it can make it difficult to relax. The good news is that you can choose the colors of your home’s interior that draw you in and give you the comfort and feel that you want to have, as well as reflect your personal style.
Bringing Peace And Tranquility With Color
Today the classic coastal color palettes seen in custom home designs consist of cool tones and warm neutrals, blending style and ambiance that create calming spaces that invite relaxing as well as entertaining. Just as the brighter hues stimulate your brain and promote energy, blues, greys, and neutrals can calm a busy mind.
Violets are considered to be part of this neutral range of colors, promoting balance and peace when used in interiors. Neutral tones incorporate the softer shades found in nature, such as those seen in seashells along the beach. Lilacs, blues, greys, and even some pinks and browns all provide that feeling of relaxation and contentment that the coast brings to many people.
Designers have often advised that by using the colors found in nature inside of our homes, we are ultimately connecting with our natural world, which gives us a sense of belonging. These tones of whites, browns, greens, and greys complement many different styles as they offer fresh tones and an inviting feel.
