Color is one of the easiest ways to change a space immediately, but selecting the correct colors can be difficult for many people. Natural and artificial lighting, furnishings, art, flooring and many other elements can affect the way a color looks in a space. A particular color can look one way in one space, but completely different in another. Color can raise or lower ceilings and make a room feel larger or smaller. Intensity and value can play a big role in the selection of correct colors, too. Trends and traditions are important to be aware of, but can’t be the only driving force in the selection of a proper color for a particular space. The selection of color is important to coordinate with existing elements or adjacent areas.
Color promotes emotional responses and has a profound effect on the way a person lives, thinks and feels. It has a biological and psychological influence on mood and more. For example, it is know that people feel calmer and more focused in softer blue and green rooms. Soft yellows and oranges are cheerful and comforting. Brown can relieve irritability and fatigue. Many other colors can have subconscious affects too. Also, some people have adversities to colors from their past and we help determine that in our initial consultation. We want our clients to feel good and enjoy their surroundings.
