The psychology of WARM colours
We at Carpetright know that interior designers will no doubt agree that every colour has its own psychology. There is even a Chinese philosophy, the Feng Shui, which focuses on attracting positivity through balancing the energy of a room. Therefore, by balancing colours in an area, one may create a particular atmosphere that they desire.
So, with the days becoming cooler and cooler, we think that it’s best to think about using warm colours to make your home welcoming and cozy. Some colours, especially red, gold and orange, radiate warmth like a flame.
Identified with: Red symbolises two very different terms; cupid and the devil, which is love and hate. Although they are both superlatives that sit on the opposite sides of the scale, they both represent very strong feelings. This colour can radiate feelings of passion, warmth, boldness, intimacy as well as power and drama. By using red, it can easily add elegance to any room, simultaneously comforting and exciting the individual within.
Combination: For a dramatic look; colour block with bold blues and greens. If you’d like a more intimate design though, combine red with black, white or other neutral colours.
Warning: Red can be very powerful, too powerful for some. So only use this strong colour if you enjoy an atmosphere that encourages stimulating emotions.
Room: Use red to improve intimacy in the bedroom, add warmth and cosiness in your lounge and create a dramatic dining room for an elegant supper.
Achieve: Create a warm and cozy home or dramatic and unforgettable rooms.
GOLD / ORANGE:
Identified with: Gold is the colour of the sun, encouraging revitalisation, which is often reminiscent of a holiday. This colour can also symbolise luxury and a prestigious style. So not only can this help recreate a sunny break but also generate a rich and abundant atmosphere. Similarly, orange is often associated with energy and tropical countries where the climate is warm. It is also interesting that orange helps increase ones appetite, making it perfect for the dining room. As some wood effect vinyl flooring gives out an orange light, it makes sense to use it in the kitchen as well.
Combination: Both gold and orange will look great with white, which will create a contemporary minimalistic interior style. Why not try a more bold design, by adding blue to make a serene atmosphere or green for a naturalistic and Caribbean look recreation of the palm trees with the sun and energy!
Warning: If you are a person that is naturally energetic, these colours may make you feel chronically elevated. It may not be a good idea to use orange and gold therefore in a room which you would like to relax and be calm.
Room: We recommend orange and blue for the ideal bedroom and luxurious white and gold for an elegant lounge and superior dining room. Whilst, simple golden hues and orange shades of vinyl will look sleek and modern in any kitchen and bathroom interior.
Achieve: Make you rooms warm and constantly feel like you are on holiday. Then, use white to create more modern and elegant styles that will always impress!
