The color of paint you choose for the walls of any room will have an effect on your mood. There is a lot of study on the psychology of color. There is no color that is “bad”, but by understanding the purpose for the room, it may help lead you in the right direction when choosing color.
Cool Colors: Green, Blue, Violet/Purple
Cool colors tend to invite a sense of calm and rooms painted in this color have a relaxing feeling. They will make the room feel larger and more serene. Think of a spa and you will get the mood these colors provide.
Warm Colors: Red, Yellow, Orange
Warm colors are exciting and dynamic. Rooms with warm walls tend to feel cozy and inviting. The feeling is like being enveloped in a warm blanket.
Neutral Colors: White, Cream, Gray
Neutral Colors are used when you want the walls to fade to the background. This will allow the furniture or artwork to stand out. These colors are considered base colors and do not usually have an effect on mood. They are all very “clean” looks that can make any room feel big. There are hundreds of shades in these hues. Be cautious of the undertone in the color.
Generally speaking white, cream and gray are considered base colors and are not generally used as the only color in a room with walls, furniture and artwork being the same. However, when used on walls, the other colors in the room with be more prominent.
Which color is best for you? For most people this may prove to be a challenging decision. First determine the mood you want to set for the room and if need be, ask an expert in color to help. You will find that the color you select will feel different and have an effect on the people who spend time in the room.
