When you begin a home renovation, or just decide to paint a room, the overall aesthetic and feeling of the room need to be considered. Certain colors have been determined to increase stress and anxiety in rooms, while others are proven to calm you down. While in your home, you’ll want to be able to maintain a calming atmosphere. Try painting with these colors to keep your home stress-free!
Lighter shades of gray are easy to complement in interior decorating. Gray has subtle undertones that can make light colors pop and tone bright colors down, leaving your room perfectly balanced. Adding touches of white, blue and yellow can create a perfect calming atmosphere at the end of a long day. If you are looking for a slightly darker shade, a gray with blue undertones can have a similar effect.
Pale Pinks and Purples
Darker shades of pink and purple can be brash and difficult to look at for long periods of time, and can even make a room appear smaller. Light shades of lilac, lavender and dusty pink allow for eye-pleasing reflections from natural light.
Cool Blues and Greens
Light shades of blue and green that you may find in nature, such as in grass, water and the sky will reduce stress and, according to Feng Shui, slow your heart rate to a relaxed, even tempo. Cool colors will help you sleep at night and complements many shades while decorating.
