Psychology of colors, or how to turn a home into a fortress01/12/22

When you hold the key to your new home, you already have a very important task ahead of you - to turn it into the home you have always dreamed of.

One of the main advantages of the apartments that are sold with a "white box" finish is your freedom to choose color combinations, shades, textures, and design solutions that will transform the empty space into a cozy and creative interior.

Therefore, today we tell you a little more about the proven ways in which different colors affect us - mentally, emotionally, and even purely physically. Below you will find the basic principles of color psychology through which to create the effect you are looking for in different parts of your home.

White: purity, simplicity, and innocence

Not coincidentally, white remains the most preferred primary color for the walls in the home. On a psychological level, color is associated with purity, innocence, freshness, and emotional balance.

Visually, the white walls create a feeling of vastness and the illusion of enlarging the room. From a practical point of view, white is the easiest color to combine with all other colors in the interior, so you can change the details many times without having to repaint the room.


Green: harmony, balance, growth

Green is one of the most emotional colors in the spectrum - it has been proven to calm and harmonize the mind, bringing the vibration of growth, new beginnings, health, renewal, hope, and peace.

Different shades of green can create a totally different style in the home - from fresh and almost neutral, to impressive with boldness and depth. All you have to do is choose the solution that works for you and then enjoy it!

Blue: peace, spirituality, tranquility

Although cold, the blue color brings a sense of balance, purity, and peace. Combined with warmer shades, the color of the sky inspires confidence and a sense of security. For this purpose, however, you should carefully combine it with complementary colors to avoid the too sad or melancholic effect.

In color psychology, blue is also defined as the color of stability, reliability, and emotional maturity.


Yellow: energy, optimism, joy

Yellow captures the warmth of sunlight and brings a sense of elation, enthusiasm, and a positive mood to the home. This color is a great choice for kitchens, dining rooms, and bathrooms, where it acts energizing and welcoming, without dominating the interior and irritating the eye.

You can use yellow to illuminate the darker corners of the rooms and give them a visual illusion of light and space. We advise you to stick to paler shades so as not to make the interior too flashy and stimulating.

Red: strength, passion, emotion

The importance of ambition, willpower, energy, and passion is attributed to the red. It is a brave and creative color that you can use for individual corners of the home to give them uniqueness and character.

In the living or dining room, red brings people together and stimulates active communication. In the entrance hall, it creates a strong first impression, and in the home office or library, it creates a very intimate and creative atmosphere.


And other

Here are some of the other possible color solutions for the interior and their meanings in the psychology of colors:

  • Orange: optimism, courage, and confidence.

  • Pink: love, care, sweetness, and sophistication.
