With each room in your home, you want to create a certain mood. The aesthetic of the room can be greatly influenced by color. A blue comfy couch can be calming, while bright yellow curtains will help wake you up in the morning. Here are some colorful art options to add to a room begging for a mood equalizer:
Red can make a room warmer and evokes passion, and liveliness. Because of its active energy, red can be a good color for a kitchen or living room. Red can stimulate conversation or inspire you while cooking. Darker red in the living room can be elegant, but reds in general increase the pulse so it’s not a great color to have in a bedroom where rest is needed.
Blue is restful and is a great option for bedrooms or bathrooms. With a serene and soothing feel, it can create a stress-free retreat zone. A light blue tone can be cooling and can reflect a coldness already present, so stay away from this color in basements. However, blue’s calm feel can offset a cramped or small space.
Yellow is bright and energizing and it exudes happiness and sunshine. The right yellow can instill laughter and optimism on the walls, but too much yellow can easily be overwhelming. According to 99design, “In design, yellow is often used to grab attention in an energetic and comforting way.”
Purple is an office, bedroom, living room, and every room color. It gives a creative and royal feel. Soothing or calming with an air of beauty, it’s a great color for stimulating ideas. It can also be used to make a room romantic and mysterious. According to Smashing Magazine, “Purple was long associated with royalty. It’s a combination of red and blue, and takes on some attributes of both. It’s associated with creativity and imagination, too.”
