Color is an important element for interior designers when determining how a room should look and feel. When designing rooms, decorators look for accessories and products that will enhance the room’s décor.
- Studies have found that certain colors cause measurable physiological changes. For example, there is greater physiological relaxation in response to blue as opposed to yellow or red.
- Warm colors (red, orange, yellow) remind us of temperate features such as fire or sunshine and therefore tend to stimulate, energize and activate.
- Cool colors (blue and violet) remind us of cool water and verdant landscapes and therefore tend to relax, soothe and calm.
