The Psychology of Color for Interior Design

Colors aren’t randomly used when we talk about interior design colors. At first sight we may think that it’s very easy to choose colors for a living room for example or for our entire home because we choose what we love and what we would like to have. In many cases the results are very good, but in most of the cases if you don’t know anything about colors and what combinations would look great for your home style, the results might have nothing in common with a professional appearance.

In most of the cases those who are interior designers have solid knowledge about colors, know very well which category belong certain color, what colors are suitable for combinations and most of all which are the psychological effects of one color or another and what fits better in order to obtain desired result. I’ve always liked the idea that by adding a certain color or a combinations of colors, you can simply change your mood, your room by creating optical illusion and making it smaller or bigger and so on. So, first we have to know that we have three primary colors: yellow, red and blue. When we combine these primary colors together, we get the secondary colors: yellow and blue is green, yellow and red is orange, blue and red is purple. Mixing primary colors with secondary ones we get different color shades which are called tertiary colors. Complementary colors are opposite each other in the graph. Each pair of colors complement each other and produce a neutral color. Each person perceives colors as cool or warm. If you see the color chart, usually the cool colors are in the blue and green colors side and the warm colors are in the yellow and orange side. Colors give us a certain state of mind, can energize us, can cheer us, can make us feel safe, calm, relax, can increase the ability to concentrate or remember us pleasant things. There are also colors that depress us, let us remember the sad things, to be tiring or become irritating after a while. We must take this into account when we choose our colors. Eventually we are the ones who stand in the house and it’s more important to feel good about it.
