Colour psychology and symbolism in interior design

Colour psychology and symbolism plays a decisive role in interior design. When choosing colors, it’s important to think about what kind of atmosphere you want to create and what colors will help achieve that. Colors can evoke warm or cold emotions, coupled with sensations such as the seasons or elements such as water and fire, which radiate heat or cold. Warm colors like yellow, orange or red have been shown to stimulate the appetite, so they fit very well in a dining room or kitchen. Of course, cultural background also plays a role in color symbolism, which cannot be discussed here to its fullest degree. The following are some of the symbolic meanings of certain colors viewed from an artistic approach.

If you don’t want to start with colored walls right away, but just want to add color accents, artwork provides the perfect balance. Artwork is an element of your interior which can wonderfully create atmosphere. The larger the artwork, the more you can use the tool of color psychology with it. Let’s take a look at the colors green, red, blue, orange, yellow and the neutral color palette, combining art, interior and emotion.

Blue belongs to the cold colors. The association with the sea and the sky gives the feeling of infinity, longing and distance. Blue, like green, is also a calming, fresh color. As one of the strongest hues in the color psychology spectrum, blue is said to lower blood pressure and slow breathing and heart rate. Deep, bold hues create a sense of confidence and are associated with qualities such as loyalty, trust, peace and success. Rooms with blue accents offer a place to rest and help you relax and unwind. Blue therefore suits the bedroom. Dive into the expanse and freshness of the color blue in our curated collection.
