Colors can affect our moods and might stimulate us or calm us. Think of red and the energy it brings, the serenity brought on by the color blue, or the clean, crisp feeling of white. Consider the colors that surround you, specifically in your own home. It is possible to add colors to your home that bring about a feeling of tranquility or that lift your mood and energy. Bailey Pitts, owner of Bailey at Home and Liz Toombs, owner of PDR Interiors, have just the right colors in mind to make this magic happen.
Colors such as red, bright pink, orange, and yellow, Liz says, are “known for livening up a space and mentally firing us up.” She adds, “These shades are naturally energetic colors when used in their highest saturation.” If you prefer to keep your wall color neutral, Liz suggests incorporating these colors into your fabrics and accessories.“They can pack a good punch without overtaking the room.”
For a calming space, Liz says colors such as blue, green, cream, gray, and lilac are great choices. “Sticking with a shade of these colors that is muted — have a gray undertone, but aren’t pastel — will create a serene space for you to enjoy. Paint, fabrics, or accessories are all great ways to incorporate these relaxing hues.”
