Your Cart is Empty

Picture this: after months of searching, you’ve finally found your dream home. It’s in the perfect location, it’s the perfect size, and it’s the perfect price. Your new place is everything you could ask for, except you aren’t entirely on board with the previous owner’s aesthetic and are looking to truly make the space your own.

Choosing a color palette for a room is often the first, and most daunting, task of decorating a new place. With so many options out there, you may ask yourself: Do these colorsgo together? Is this bluetooblue? What does tertiaryeven mean?

It might be time to try a new approach. Instead of focusing on what you wantsee when you enter a room, think about how you’d like tofeel.

Color psychology studies and analyses how certain colors and hues affect our behaviors and emotions. Though it can be rather subjective,studies show that different hues evoke a different  feelings. With a little bit of research you can transform a once overbearing project into an exciting experiment in creating a space that feels like home should.

So, what colors work best for each room?

Living Room

Your living room is the central hub of your home and needs comfort, welcome, and relax you and anyone who comes over. After a dinner party, it’s the perfect space for drinks and conversation. On a rainy day, you’ll want to curl up with a warm cup of tea and a good book.

Warm shades of yellow will encourage energy and enthusiasm and evoke summertime, a time full of fun and good laughs comes to mind. The excitement of these brighter shades can be offset with tranquil and comforting cool tones of blue and green.

Try pairing dark navy accessories in a room painted light yellow with abundant plants, bringing the excitement and relaxation of a long summer day inside.

Bedroom

We begin and end our days in our bedrooms, so it’s important for it to be a place where our emotions and spirits can be uplifted and where we can relax at the end of a long day.


In addition to being a confidence booster, red, much like it’s other warm color cousins, incites excitement and fun. To ensure it doesn’t overpower the room, stick to lighter shades and accessories like throw pillows or metallic copper accent pieces. Pair reds with cooler tones like light grey for a balanced vibe.

Bathroom

We’re all looking for the same experience in the bathroom: clean, blissful, and comfortable. But how do you turn an often cramped space into a personal spa? White, the absence of color, helps clear the mind while creating the illusion of more space. By including shades of blue, which studies show have a calming effect on the body, you can elevate that feeling of peace. Blue can help lower body temperature and elevated pulse, leaving you in a state of serenity.

Color has an enormous amount of power: each family of hues has the ability to alter our emotions for the better. Keep this power in mind when choosing color palettes and decorate your space to be aesthetically and emotionally in sync with you.
