Colours and Feelings - Interior Design Themes

by Guest on Oct 25, 2012

Ask someone what their favourite colour is and you will get a list of colours, ranging from white to red to black. But ask them to paint their bedrooms; they would never go for their favourite colours. They would choose from the regular palette of blues and pinks and pastels and whites. That is so because colour plays a very important role in mood building. A simple room can feel or evoke a special emotion depending on just what ambience is created. And colour of the walls play a very important role in making of the ambience. Imagine walking into a room with red walls, candle lit chandeliers hanging from the top and a bunch of red roses lying carelessly strewn across the bed. Isn’t it a good day to spend in with your loved one on a, say, Valentine’s Day? Or wouldn’t you want a baby’s play room full of loud bright colours and sleeping arena, a mixture of calm midnight blues and pretty sweet shades of pinks.

The magic of colours can immensely affect your mind set, mood and your thought process. It is a widely accepted and scientifically proved fact. The colour therapies and other colour based procedures work on this theory only. In fact, in New York, there is a hotel chain that has its suites named on colours as the whole suite is coloured, or the basic scheme of decoration thought, keeping the colour in mind just because it induces a specific feeling when experienced so closely. Why do you think that most of the restaurants have pastel and brown woodish colours as their themes, simply because they want you to be filled with a warm cosiness that you experience in a family dinner. Or why is it that kitchens are generally painted in bright shades of orange and family, just because they provide a sense of hunger. The greenery of the garden goes best with the white furniture and not, say, a black one. The bathrooms are generally never too loudly painted. Rather they are done in sober blues and greens apart from the regular spotless whites. You might have never seen a red coloured living room, but a single wall painted red looks classy as a mount for pictures and medals and can easily become a wall of fame of the house. Contrasting and matching the colours differently produces a different effect on everyone, yet there are some general rules.

But that does not mean that contrasting and mixing of colours can never be done. Rather, today few companies are focusing more on wall patterns, textures and shades in never imagined before colour contrasts and design. Beauty has no definition and so what is ugly and unbelievable today may become the trend for tomorrow. Just pick your colours practically, keep a clear tab in your mind of what you want the room to feel like and look like every time you enter. Then you are free to unleash your colours.
