Your favorite color says a lot about you. Colors hold the power of communicating certain behaviors, emotions, actions, and moods in almost everything we do in our everyday lives. Industries know the psychology behind colors and choose to use them to their advantage to influence the way consumers think and act. It’s important to remember though, that color psychology is also inherited in us as individuals, and the colors we choose to have around us influence us and say a lot about us. Look around you right now; what colors are the walls in your living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and all other rooms in your house? Why did you choose those specific colors, and how do you think they influence you every day without even realizing it? Let’s take a look at some powerful color combinations that you can choose for your interior décor and what they represent.
The Psychology of Colors
Let’s go through the colors of the rainbow really quickly and sum up what each color represents (taking into consideration that one color can have both positive and negative representations). Although colors are relatively subjective, some effects have a universal meaning.
Red – A powerful, strong, and attractive color displaying excitement, love, strength, and energy while also relating to caution, danger, and anger.
Orange – The color of beautiful autumn leaves. This color calls for warmth, confidence, and a calming sensation but can also have a downside of pessimism and superficiality.
Yellow – A bright and fun color indeed! Yellow colors have a happy and positive hue that shows hope, cheerfulness, illumination, and fun. Too much yellow can also represent anxiety, worry, criticism, and cowardice.
Green – The color of mother nature, balance, growth, healing, and comfort; all things nice. However, it can also lead to feelings of envy, greed, jealousy, and selfishness.
Blue – Usually used most in business and corporate uniforms, this color represents trust, honor, dependability, and nobility. Blue can also show maturity in old age and somewhat boringness.
Purple – Purple inspires creativity in imagination and spirituality. The color heightens a sense of beauty and shows superiority.
