How Colour Effects Our Mood

 What Colours Are Uplifting for Your Home?

 You may not have considered which if any particular colours are actually good for your overall mood. But guess what? You are about to find out otherwise.

Colour is a powerful communication tool and is often used to signal action, influence a mood, and even influence physiological reactions. Did you know that some colours can elevate your mood, and on the negative side, increase blood pressure?

So how exactly does colour work? How is colour believed to impact mood and behaviour?

Colour Psychology

Isaac Newton discovered that when pure white light passes through a prism, it separates into all of the visible colours. He also discovered that each colour is made up of a single wavelength and cannot be separated any further into other colours. Jeez he was a clever bloke!

He then went on to demonstrate that light could be combined to form other colours. For example, red light mixed with yellow light creates an orange colour.

Despite an overall lack of research in this area, the concept of colour psychology has become a really hot topic when it comes to marketing. Much of the evidence in the area of colour influence is based around theory, but researchers and experts have made a few important discoveries and observations over the past few years.

Strong, bright colours are known to have a positive effect on our emotions. Bright red, bright yellow and bright or emerald green can feel energizing and make you feel more alert. Brightly coloured furniture, when mixed with muted, pale colours can have a hugely positive effect on our mood.

Our New Velvet Dining Chairs

Thinking about the effect that colour has on us has made us think about what colours would be best to add to our range of covered dining chairs. Velvet as a material is soft and comfortable but also stunning on the eye, especially when it comes in mood enhancing colours such as emerald green, navy blue, yellow and pink.

We will be adding to our range over time, but these beautiful colours have been a great addition to our growing range of modern, luxury chairs.
