With the sunshine flooding your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford home you are sure to be appreciating the colours in your home and garden. Have you ever noticed that a particular colour can have a real impact on your overall mood? For some of us, the subtlety of colour psychology may men you don’t even pick up on it immediately but there is a clear link between colours and emotions. This could be something to consider when decorating your home whether it's painting the walls, changing your soft furnishings or looking to revamp your bed linen.

It worth knowing a bit about the impact of different colours to inspire emotions and create distinct vibes so you can decide how you might want to use them in your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford bedroom, bathroom, living room or kitchen.

Green has been popular combining warm yellow and cool blue, a choice that is said to bring balance and harmony to any room. It has a peaceful, calming effect that creates feelings of safety and fosters a sense of connection to the natural world. Then there is blue is one of the most common colours used in bedrooms, known for its soothing and relaxing properties. It’s also a clean, crisp colour, making it an ideal choice for bathrooms. If you are looking to achieve that calming vibe, it might be better to opt for softer, lighter shades of blue. 

Of course, there are always the neutral shades it is hard to go wrong with such as shades of grey, white and black. They are easy to incorporate into any scheme, in any room of the house and you can balance them with almost any other colour.

If you like warm, bright colours like red you will know they have the power to energise and stimulate a space. Some people find reds overwhelming but if you can incorporate it subtly into a room red can be a nice accent in your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford living room or kitchen, social areas where energy and stimulation are always welcome.
