The colour of your walls impacts your mood

Published:Sunday | August 12, 2018 | 12:00 AM

Walls come in various shapes and sizes and there is no one colour that fits all, or suits every personality.

In fact, the colour of your wall can negatively or positively impact your mood. Yes, you read correctly, colours have been proven to dramatically affect moods, feelings and emotions.

Colours are powerful communication tools that can be used to influence moods and even influence physiological reactions. Certain colours have been associated with increased blood pressure, increased metabolism and eyestrain.

How exactly do colours impact your mood, or more importantly, how do the colours on your walls make you feel?

 

Blue

 

Perfect for bedrooms, the colour blue can create an aura of relaxation. Blue calls to mind feelings of calmness and serenity and is often described as peaceful, tranquil, and secure.

 

Yellow

 

Add a bit of sunshine to your life! The colour yellow is bright and adds cheer or warmth to any room.

 

Green

 

Have you ever wondered why you find yourself looking out the window admiring the greenery around? It's because the colour green is a serene colour which makes us feel more in touch with nature. Green is thought to relieve stress and is associated with healing.

Whenever you get out of bed in the morning or sit at your table with a cup of coffee, the colour you choose to put on your wall can help put you in a good place emotionally.
