Blue

Blue has been scientifically proven in studies to lower our heart rates, an Australian study in 2015 proved that exposure to blue light lowered participant’s blood pressure. People often report feeling calm, centered, awake, and less impulsive when surrounded by blue decor. This is because blue and green light is hardwired to be recognized as daylight by our brain. If you want a relaxing and airy space that helps you to maintain focus, try incorporating blue walls in your study, or blue mosaic bathroom flooring to help you rejuvenate and unwind after your day.

Light and pastel blues can feel quite cold if you want a warmer, cozier feel; opt for warmer shades such as turquoise.

Yellow

Yellow catches the sunlight and brightens your home, reminding us of happiness-inducing sunshine and fresh fruit, yellow can be particularly useful to those who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (or S.A.D ) during the winter months as it reminds us of sunnier days until they bless us again in spring! Yellow is also linked to energy and vitality, so can be used to give you a lift if you feel lethargic. Try incorporating yellow to invigorate the mood of your kitchen with a custom mosaic backsplash or wall motif, and add yellow flowers to rooms that could use a boost of energy.

Green

Green is associated with prosperity and nature; like blue, it provides a calming effect whilst lowering the heart rate by simulating daylight. Green is thought to be the most natural color to the eye and encourages composure, clarity and restores the mind. If you are a nature lover; consider adding an earthy vibe to your living room with lush plants, mossy green walls or natural contemporary wall art.

Orange

Orange is an exciting color associated with creativity and energy. If you require some enthusiasm in your home, try infusing it with some zesty orange statement décor. Be mindful that because of its energetic nature, orange doesn’t make a good bedroom color, so stick to living rooms, kitchens, and office spaces.
