The effect of colour for furnishing with your desired colour

Colours have a strong psychological effect on people and can trigger various emotions and reactions. This is why they are one of the most important components when it comes to furnishing rooms. The choice of colours can have a major impact on the effect of the room and can be influenced by nuances and combinations.

The use of colour is just as important. Do you want to set colourful accents as eye-catchers or large-scale highlights in the form of wall paints in your desired colour? The rule here is that dark colours make a room appear smaller and more compact, while light colours make it appear larger and airier.
Each colour has its own meaning and effect on the viewer. Here are some common associations and tips on how best to use your desired colours to create the desired atmosphere:

Yellow stands for joy and optimism and is a cheerful colour that is perceived as sunny and inviting. In colour psychology, yellow is often associated with intellect, concentration and communication. Yellow can also attract attention and be used as a signal colour. However, excessive use of yellow can trigger restlessness and nervousness.

Red stands for energy and warmth and is a very passionate colour. It can immediately make a room appear more exciting and lively and convey a feeling of security when used in a darker tone. However, red can also have an aggressive effect if it is used too boldly and obtrusively. Red can also stimulate the appetite, making it an ideal colour for dining rooms and kitchens.

Blue stands for relaxation and confidence and is a calming and relaxing colour associated with the sea and sky and can convey a sense of space, freedom and calm. Blue is often associated with intelligence and seriousness and is well suited to business environments and professional contexts. The colour blue can help to clear the mind and focus on inner thoughts and emotions. However, blue can also appear cold and distant if used too much.

Orange stands for enthusiasm and creativity and is a vibrant colour that is associated with enthusiasm. In psychology, orange is considered a stimulating colour that can trigger feelings such as joy and optimism. It can also have a positive effect on the immune system and is often used in therapeutic applications. In art and design, orange is often used to attract attention and evoke emotions.

Violet symbolises wisdom and spirituality and is associated with the promotion of clarity in psychology. It is believed that violet can help to overcome fears and insecurities. The colour violet has a complex effect on us. It is a mixture of warm reds and cool blues and therefore has both calming and vividly stimulating properties.

Green stands for nature and growth and is a calming colour associated with nature. It is believed that green has a calming effect on the mind and can help to reduce stress. Green can provide a sense of peace and calm and is therefore well suited to bedrooms and bathrooms. Green can also promote concentration and is often seen as harmonising and balancing, making it well suited to workspaces.

Grey stands for restraint and neutrality and is often seen as a colour that lies between black and white and represents a neutral tone that dampens and calms emotions and moods. Grey is often used in architecture and interior design to achieve a modern and minimalist look. The colour can also evoke feelings of boredom and sadness, especially when used in excessive quantities or when combined with other colours that can also be perceived as drab or gloomy.

Have fun spicing up your home!
