Colours can evoke a multiplicity of emotions in you — from calm to joy, and even sadness — making it necessary for you to pick the right colour for your home.
Minal Srivastava, Shalimar Paints suggests the colours that work the best for different rooms in your home.
1. Living room
The living room is any home’s heart. Paint it grey, as this colour can make your space look spacious and sophisticated. Another colour in the same league is beige. A shade of beige on the living room walls never fails to set the mood while adding a minimalistic yet classy effect.
Those who find neutrals boring, can opt for green to give the room a fresh look. For your living rooms to appear clean and organised, blue is the go-to colour. If you want to make your living area look unique, apply black as it makes the other elements in the room stand out against the darker background.
The bedroom is the most special area of any house. To ensure that it remains cool and cosy, one can choose from different shades of green. Being a natural colour, it perfectly brings in the feeling of serenity and content.
For the stressful souls out there, lavender comes to rescue as it infuses a calming effect in the bedroom. Hues of grey do the same magic to the room.
Blue is another colour that offers a sense of relaxation. While pale blue is known for soothing minds, deep blue ensures the incoming of wisdom and utmost calmness into the soul.
3. Kids’ rooms
Having red as the backdrop in kids’ rooms can escalate their energy levels and helps them focus on various activities, letting their brains run fast. A softer shade of orange, since it’s bright and cheerful, can enhance the social skills of children.
Traditionally, pink that was considered to be a go-to girls rooms’ colour, is now believed to benefit both sexes by nurturing the sense of care and empathy in them, thus making it a great colour for your child’s bedroom.
From a learning perspective, choose any shade of green as it brings freshness and enhances comprehension ability. Accent their rooms with purple, which can pass on positive effects on budding minds and inspire thoughtfulness and spirituality.
To keep the kitchen warm and welcoming, pick colours such as white, grey, blue, red, yellow and green. Although each of these colours can add a different kind of uniqueness to the area, soothing colours like blue and warmer colours like red have always been the top preference. While lighter blues can add ethereal beauty of beach and sky to the kitchen as well as to the mind of cook, red is believed to stimulate peoples’ appetite. (IANS)
