The Psychology of Colour

When we moved into our house almost two years ago now, there was a lot of redecorating that needed to be done. In fact, almost every room in the house needed at least a lick of paint. I like to have a colour theme to the rooms in my house, but I don’t necessarily think about the colour first. When I find an accessory or some wallpaper that I really love for a feature wall, I will work around that.

The feature colour of our bedroom is purple, Noah’s room is a neutral grey, Jacob’s is blue. Our bathroom did have blue accessories but we’re currently reverting it back to cream. The living room feature colour is red, and our kitchen is a vintage looking “custard cream” shade (which also happens to be my favourite biscuit, so it’s fitting!). We haven’t got around to the dining room yet, but as it’s connected to the kitchen then it will be a similar colour.

The people at Thomas Sanderson believe that choosing which colour to feature in a room is a very important task. Colour affects everything we do from how we act to our moods, so it will certainly influence how we are in in our own homes. They have put together this guide explaining the best colour for each room and the psychology behind it.
