The Do's And Don'ts Of Choosing Paint Colors Based On Your Room's Mood

December 15, 2015 by Isabel Jones
shefinds | Style

What color should you paint your walls? Well, it all depends on the energy you’re trying to promote. Remember mood rings? The stone is blue; I’m sad…yeah, yeah. When painting your walls, you’re really using the same principle—but we hope it’s a little less reminiscent of the seventh grade!

Red

This color red evokes excitement and stimulation. It’s a great scheme to incorporate into a living room or office—a space that can benefit from creativity. That being said, red can be a tad intense for a bedroom. Unless, of course, you plan to pull an all-nighter every day of the week (please don’t, you need your sleep!).

Yellow

Yellow is cheerful: “Here comes the sun” yada, yada… but as with anything amazing (chocolate, Beyoncé songs, Urban Decay eyeliner, etc…) it must not be used to excess. So go ahead, add a burst of yellow to your room, but don’t overdo it. Too much of the color can be a sensory overload, evoking feelings of frustration and irritability. Your home deserves better!

Blue

Pale or pastel shades of blue are great for any environment that seeks to cultivate a sense of calm. Just make sure your shade isn’t too dark, darker shades of blue are closely related to feelings of sadness.

Green

We’re going to go ahead and give green the “green light.” On the whole, green is the best choice for any room. A medley of two winning colors, green takes on the calming properties of blue and the happiness evoked by yellow. Pro tip: green is thought to improve fertility, so proceed with caution!

Purple

As you may have guessed, the color of royalty is associated with feelings of luxury and sophistication. Purple mimics the calming quality of blue, but doesn’t run the risk of depressing the room.

Orange

Orange is wild. Its high-energy, as with red, is too intense for the main rooms of your home. However, it could be appropriate for a playroom or exercise room—and if you have either of these, we’re super jealous!
