Paint effects the mood in each room which is felt when you first step in a space. Use paint to effectively emanate the mood you’d like yourself & others to feel throughout your home. What you’ll need to ask yourself prior to selecting your interior paint colors are “what mood am I trying to set?” and “how do I want myself & others to feel when in this room?”. Then, you can start incorporating each desired color in your home.
Here are the meanings to each color:
Yellow: Happiness, high energy, & welcoming
Pink: Feminine, positive, & lively
Green: Tranquil & restful
Red: Passionate, comforting, heightens emotions, & stimulates appetite
Orange: Warm & stimulates creativity
Blue: Meditative, calming, & clear thinking
Purple: Spiritual & stimulating
Due to there being various shades in each color, you can find which shade will fit your space best by testing them out in small sections on a wall next to each other. You can even create your own paint color by going to a paint store nearby & asking them to color match a color sample you have or as ask them to lighten or darken a certain shade.
Forget being matchy-matchy. Mix different shades of one color in a room so your pillows, rugs, & art, for example, are different shades of the wall color you’re using in that room.
Set aside all the fear of adding some bold colors & have fun setting the mood inside your home!
