Choose your colours wisely throughout your home
Think about how certain colours make you feel. To create peace and harmony in your home, choose your colours wisely. Limit the number of colours in a room to no more than three or four. Too many colours can make a room look busy or cluttered.
Pick a warm and welcoming colour, such as light orange, yellow, beige, or a tinted white. Corridors tend to suffer from lack of light, so keep it bright.
As the space for social gatherings, your living room will call for warm tones: red, yellow, orange, or the more grounding brown or the subtler beige. Where colours exude warmth, they stimulate conversion and people feel connected.
The kitchen is the place for stimulating colours such as red, orange, and yellow. They provide the energy needed for preparing meals and have an effect on your appetite as they play on your physical, sensual side.
To aid relaxation, sleep and connecting with your partner, consider green, blue or a light tint of violet such as lavender. Darker hues will create more pronounced effects, but be careful not to make the room bland, dull or depressing.
White tints and warm colours are popular for bathrooms as we associate cleanliness with them. But blue and green tones such as turquoise can also inject freshness into the room and make for a calming spa experience.
Home office or study
Green is restful and easy on the eye. It creates balance, which is the best base for periods of long concentration. A second choice for your home office or study can be violet, since it promotes thought and contemplation.
