Colour Selection & It's Impact On Psychology

Updated: Mar 30

Colour consultations are not a new thing when we are discussing interior design, but are we really paying attention to the importance and the impact it can have on our psychology apart from just the over all outlook of the home?

Colour plays an important role in how we have been perceiving this world, ever since the beginning of our time and yet there is still so much we need to understand about its impact on human psychology. This is because there are a lot of variables we need to factor in, for example, the ability to perceive the colour varies from person to person depending on the genetic composition, personal preferences, experiences in the past, cultural & gender differences, age, profession and so on. 

And that is the reason why we always prefer to sit and understand you before we commence any work whether its for yourself or your home. In this article, we’ll explain what colour psychology is and educate you on how colour will not only change your entire outlook of the house but lot within you as well.

What is Colour Psychology?

It is the study of colours in relation to human behaviour. Here we aim to determine how colour affects our way of living including mood, feelings, behaviour & personality. Have you ever wondered why we inquire about the favourite colour when we want to know someone better? It may be a subconscious inquiry but it tells a lot about how our psyche works. Believe it or not, we have been drawn or repelled by certain colours consciously or subconsciously and it has been one of the important factors in our decision making process within our minds. Every individual would have a certain colour meanings associated that could be dependent on his/her upbringing, gender, location, values, and a variety of other factors.
