Most of us have experienced the Work at Home scenario during the lockdowns. Some may have enjoyed it (That would be me!) and some might have found it boring and unproductive. Bustling cities like Bangalore may have experienced a lot of sudden lockdowns during the Pandemic, and this leads to more work hours construed to the interiors of our homes, where we might find ourselves staring at the barren walls nonchalantly, bored out of our minds.
Interior wall paintings
This is where Interior Wall Paintings come in handy. They are not only used to beautify our interiors, and get a whole load of compliments from our visitors, which is one of the reasons why our aunts fall head over heels over those exquisite wall paintings!
But they also play a huge role in affecting our personality and productivity.
Now, I know we who belong to the educated tribe of city dwellers, are more or less skeptical about superstitions, but we are not talking about our Vastu concepts, nor are we diverting your attention to Chinese Feng-shui stuff over here.
No, we are going to approach this matter through colour psychology. Now, you might have heard about this when you were sifting through magazines or watched a number of detective series or two, but we will give you a quick runover of what it actually is. Colour psychology dictates that colours have inherent qualities that evoke certain emotions in people. Colours can also enhance the effectiveness of some medicines and have an overall mental and psychological transformation, which differs from person to person.
For Example, most people assume that bright colours are associated with energy.
But a psychology study at the University of Rochester found that red drastically increases the speed and intensity of emotions that boil inside each and every one of us. Red makes us feel as if everything is urgent, which makes us feel anxiety and worry for the worse.
Colour psychology links our emotions to the primitive centers of our brain, the ones that allowed our hunter-gatherer ancestors to survive eons ago. Scientists say that this correlation also affects us to this day, which is why marketers exploit this in order to sell and create traction in the economy. We can also use this unique and inherent feature inside all of us to ramp up our productivity and get our job done in a jiffy.
What colours should I use in my home office?
Now when we say Home Office, it doesn’t strictly pertain that you must have an office with all the facilities at home. It means that you may repaint the interior wall paintings with a desirable colour to boost your productivity. Studies say that it is better to have a specific space at your home that you use for work, so that you may get into the “zone” and have peace of mind to finish your work attentively.
Because there’s a lot of thinking or collaborating involved. For example,
Intense colours like emerald green will make you lose focus, as it is used for more creative spaces like an artist’s studio.
Like we said, It’s not only the colour itself that affects your mood and behavior, the intensity of the colour also plays a major part in transforming your mood as well.
Balance in a home office is essential, both in painting and in life as well. If you paint your walls in a sky-blue tone, don’t use a similar type of blue for the trim or an accent wall. Break it up with a dash of white stripes, or any light colour of your liking. It works as long as it blends well with the primary colour without extra intensity.
Yellows and blues blend well together if you go over and choose the right shades and finishes. For example, the paint colours Old Navy walls and Sunburst (both by the Famous Benjamin Moore) accents will calm and brighten your mood simultaneously, perfect for a low-key work-at-home paint for your interior walls. Take some liberty to throw in a dash of red and yellow to spice things up and amp up your energy level by a notch or two.
