The Color Psychology – The Bedroom
Color can have an amazing effect on perceptions, feelings and interactions. Different colors evoke different memories and different ideas. In the bedroom, where you should probably be most satisfied, it is important that you plan your color scheme so that it creates maximum comfort for you.
Psychologists have studied the effects of color on people for many years. While they have made many discoveries about color effects on people in different communities, they have not found any effects that occur in all societies. For example, in China, the color tends to make people feel calm, while in America, red tends to make people more aggressive. This means that the effect of color on the human mind is individual and perceptual, rather than physiological and inherent. In order to choose the right color for a setting, you must get in touch with your inner self and see which color you harmonize best with. In the bedroom you try to achieve maximum relaxation. By choosing the colors that you feel most comfortable with, you will find the greatest satisfaction with your decor.
Consider the following colors. Think of each one separately. Think of their different shades, how you feel about them, what they invoke in you.
RED. Orange. Yellow. Green. Blue. Violet. Purple. White. Black
Once you realize what you think about these colors, you can read about the general effects of these colors on people in American society. Don't be afraid to disagree, your taste differs from someone else's, but keep in mind that the average American entering the room will feel these effects to some extent.
The two extreme colors are white and black. Black is an attention grabber, and can create a bedroom with a dark, sultry appearance. Unfortunately, it will also make the room look smaller and seem more restrictive. Overuse of the color black can be dangerous in a room like the bedroom, as it can weaken human mood. It can even produce night jumps. At the same time, its polar opposite, white, can be uninspiring. Most rooms start with white walls, and that is the generic look of many homes. It can have a positive and calming effect on their feelings, but it can also lead to a lack of stimulation which can be a horrible thing in a bedroom. Whatever perception is, white is a good color for warm climates. White reflectors light create cooler temperatures and a windy feel.
The earth tones are mild and will hold a bedroom that feels close and snug as long as you pay attention to the tones you use. These colors include brown, oranges and yellow. Browns tend to remind Americans of the family and emotional ties to each other and the world. Orange is a color that makes people happy, but is also the color associated with food and can lead to midnight snacking. Yellow creates a very positive effect on people psychologically, but only in the short term. Prolonged exposure to this color may cause irritation.
Blues and greens produce peace and quiet. They are colors associated with nature and the sea. Using these colors heavily in your bedroom can help calm the feelings of their passengers and take quiet nights. Blue will also calm the desire for food after you go and lie down, because there is very little blue food in nature, so our minds tend to oppress hunger on the spot. Pink is the extreme clinging color and many will find it impossible to act aggressively when surrounded by it. Purple is a nice color for a bedroom that makes it more sophisticated.
Red is an exciting color. If you have trouble falling asleep, do not use red in the bedroom. But to get a tired relationship goes, red can be just the color you want. Red makes the Americans aggressive. It accelerates their metabolism and gives them energy. Red is a good color for sheets or blankets, because if it becomes too distracting it can be put off until desired.
The combination of these colors provides additional effects, which are many outside the scope of this article. Remember that shade and tone are important, and will change these effects. Most importantly, you should have the last say; It's the colors that affect your own mind, which is important, and only you can really understand your own impressions.
