Colour Psychology

Have you ever been curious about the effects colours have on us? Maybe you instinctively feel drawn to softer, more neutral colours in your bedroom. And maybe you feel more adventurous with the decor in the kitchen or living room? Colour psychology is the study of how different colours affect human emotions, moods, and behaviours. It is believed that each colour can have a unique psychological effect on people.

To illustrate, here is breakdown of some popular colours and their psychological effects:
