Did you know that a human eye can see about
7,000,000 colours? Scientists say that colours can put us in a good mood but on
the other hand they can also irritate us and cause headaches. Some colour
combinations are healing and help us relax.
So, let’s have a look at what I found out about
colours and what they can do for us:
Green – one of my favourite colours and very
popular as well (from a selling point of view). Green means nature, healing,
love and has a calming effect. About 25 years ago I remember my Grandmother
sitting in the garden and saying “look at the grass for half an hour a day and
your vision will be better and your mind will be relaxed.” And Grandmas are
always right! I love plants and flowers, however I am not the greatest when it
comes to looking after them – my mum is and her house is full of gorgeous plants
and I have to say I get a bit jealous. They definitely bring a positive energy
to any room.
Blue – it is said
that a blue colour has a calming effect on people. It is recommended for people
with stressful jobs to have blue walls or sofas in their room so they can relax.
Blue is not the colour I would choose for my launch but I visited my friend a
few weeks ago and her sofas are blue, also some of her accessories are blue and
beige and it looks great!
Purple – another relaxing colour - encourages sleep
so if you have sleeping problems this would be a great colour for your bedroom.
Red – a colour of passion and stimulation may increase your appetite. I noticed that when I buy
colourful sweets for my son, first colours he reaches for are red and orange,
normally blue ones are the least appetizing.
Orange – another great colour full of energy, joy
and creativity. Apparently, if you have difficulties getting up in the morning
this is the right colour for your bedroom. I think I will try it and get some
orange bedding – oops, now you know my secret – I am not an early
Yellow – the colour of sun, activity, tension release. Yellow has a positive effect and keeps us
concentrated. Walls in my house are mostly yellow (light) to help my rooms feel
bigger and brighter.
My favourite colours are green, orange, turquoise and red – as you can see I really
can’t decide what’s my favourite ONE colour as l like so many of them – how

effect on your mood and how do you choose your colours?
