How Color Affects How We Feel

Have you ever felt more energized after looking at an orange painting? When you spend time in a blue hotel room, do you feel more relaxed? Psychologists have shown that the colors we see can have an effect on our moods. Here are a few of the ways that color can affect the emotions you feel — and how you can use color in your interior decorating to your advantage.

  • Red. Red is a color that usually indicates alertness, passion, or excitement. Red artwork raises a room’s energy level and stimulates conversation. You might want to include red décor in your home’s entryway or dining room to keep the energy of your next gathering up.
  • Blue. Blue is a calm, relaxing, and serene color. Introducing blue artwork or décor to a space can help you set tensions at ease and unwind. If you’re planning on hosting or attending an adult paint party in Milwaukee County, you might want to use blue hues if you plan on displaying your creation in your bathroom or bedroom.
  • Orange. Orange is an invigorating and exciting color associated with creativity and enhanced activity and energy levels. If you have a home office or workout space, consider adding orange décor to boost yourself out of your midday slump.
  • Purple. Rich, dramatic shades of purple have long been associated with passion and creativity. Consider adding a few purple pieces of artwork to any space that you create in — like your office or workspace.
