If not, you should pay attention to the magical effect of using the right color palette to transform your living space. You and your kids could be missing out on the benefits of creating a colorful, rejuvenating home environment. In fact, surrounding yourself with calming colors is more powerful than you might think. There’s no time like the present, especially with so much time spent indoors these days.
Believe it or not, you can lower your stress levels and improve your overall sense of wellness with the right colors. If you’re doubtful that changing the colors of your walls could really make a difference in your home’s vibe, it’s understandable. You probably don’t realize that this color phenomenon has been studied multiple times over many years. According to science-backed color theory, the various colors we see around us consistently affect us psychologically.
The grounding, comforting effects of low-saturation shades contrast the feelings of stimulating, fiery, saturated colors like red, yellow, and orange. You’re naturally more attracted to soft pastels and neutral tones when you’re feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, confused, or uncertain. You’re likely to gravitate towards yellow when you need a boost of energy. You’ll find an interesting overview and practical guide to taking advantage of color at the end of this post.
So, why not make sure your home is full of stress-relieving colors? As we’ve mentioned, using a calming color palette to repaint is one of the easiest ways to refresh your space without a major commitment. Worst case scenario, you end up hating the color and repaint the next weekend.
