Colour has the significant impact on our lives and it is of paramount importance that we ensure we are designing living environments that are conducive to their function. Study the environmental side of Feng Shui and understand the impact color has on our moods, health, well-being, and happiness and should be utter careful while choosing house painting colors.

Science says that looking at colors can relax you. That’s right, colors have an enormous impact on us, psychologically, emotionally and even physically. For instance, red shades tend to trigger your stress response, making you more anxious, while lighter shades calm you down. If you are feeling overly stressed, you can use color as a stress management tool. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of the most relaxing colors you should choose for a stress-free life.

1. White

White is the color at its most complete and pure, the color of perfection. The color meaning of white is purity, innocence, wholeness and completion. In color psychology white is the color of new beginnings, wiping the slate clean, so to speak. It is the blank canvas waiting to be written upon. While white isn’t stimulating to the senses, it opens the way for the creation of anything the mind can conceive. White color in your room needs to be clean, because when it gets dirty then it would be reflected in your emotions.

2. Blue

Peaceful, calm and gentle, blue has tremendous power to manage stress. It’s a very soothing color that helps calm your mind, slow down your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and reduce anxiety. Blue is often used to decorate offices because research has shown that people are more productive in blue. It can also lower the pulse rate and body temperature. Blue has a soothing quality about it that makes people feel relaxed and comfortable. This psychological effect of the color blue is used in interior design to ‘expand’ the walls of a room by painting them in light shades of blue (it doesn’t work with dark blues!).

3. Green

Green for house painting color is cool that symbolizes nature and the natural world. It also represents tranquility, good luck and health. Green also has the same calming qualities as blue. Neutral shades of green such as olive or sage are more accepted in room colors and decor than shades of aqua or yellow-green. Those who have a green work environment experiences fewer stomach aches.

 

4. Pink

Pink is another color that promotes tranquility and peace. In fact, Feng Shui believes pink soothes various energies in a room and keep them understated. Its peacefulness promotes the balance of your energies. Although pink is considered a feminine color, commonly seen in a baby girl’s nursery room, the right shade of pink can look beautiful in just about any room.

 

5. Yellow

There’s something very positive about this house painting color that makes you feel lively and energetic the moment you lay your eyes on it. So if you want to jump start your day on an energetic note, keep a significant ‘yellow thing’ in a prominent place at home. Or even better paint your kitchen yellow (in full or parts) because a recent research found out that people in the yellow room appeared to be more active and conscious than people in other room.

Yellow captures the joy of sunshine and communicates happiness. It is an excellent choice for kitchens, dining rooms and bathrooms, where it is energizing and uplifting. In halls, entries and small spaces, yellow can feel expansive and welcoming.

6. Neutrals (black, gray, white and brown)

These are basic to the house painting color decorator’s tool kit. All-neutral schemes fall in and out of fashion, but their virtue lies in their flexibility: Add color to liven things up; subtract it to calm things down.

Black is best used in small doses as an accent. Indeed, some experts maintain that every room needs a touch of black to ground the color scheme and give it depth. To make the job easier, rely on the interior designer’s most important color tool: the color wheel.

Brown can be quite a ‘yummy’ color (think chocolate, coffee, cookies). Those are the shades of brown that remind us of creature comforts and the Good Life.

Nature, too, is full of the color brown; in most parts of the world, brown is the color of the earth, and most plants have got at least some brown in them.

This is why the psychological effects of the color brown are often described as reassuring, safe and stabilizing – we tend to feel safe in nature (as long as it doesn’t move, shake or drown us).

Many people think of gray as a “safe” color. With gray, it’s possible to create either fantastically gorgeous or truly awful interiors. Used well, the color gray can lend interiors an elegant formality that is subtle without being overly conservative.


Finally, choose the colour that fits your mood and environment, because those colors are going to stay with you for many days or months. Please feel free to give feedback and suggestion in comment box below.
