The Many Moods of Colour

The right colour can lift our spirits, making us feel happy, relaxed or energetic. The wrong colour can also put us on edge or make us feel lethargic. When it comes to painting your house, or even just one room in your house, which colour and which finish are two critical questions.

Hot colours

Hot colours, such as red, orange and yellow, are bright and invigorating, helping to generate feelings of energy. Use these colours in rooms where activities occur, for example, the kitchen. If you don’t fancy painting an entire room in a hot colour then look at how you can introduce these hues with accessories and soft furnishings.

Cool colours 

Cool colours help to relax and unwind and are therefore ideal for your bathroom, bedroom or living room. Look out for blues, violets and indigos if you want to set a soothing scene.
