Colours to set the tone of your new home

Interior colours to brighten your homes and your mood as we pop into Spring.



Did you know that blue rooms can actually oppose the “feeling blue” idiom as they provide a calm and relaxing environment? According to experts, living in a blue room has been proven in multiple studies to boost your mood.

Blue also neutralises melatonin levels, helping you to get the best night's sleep and wake up feeling fresh and energised: that's why blue is arguably the ideal bedroom colour choice!



As the colour of sunshine, yellow can signify summer and joy, but what many people aren’t aware of, is that this colour can increase your metabolism, productivity and creativity. That’s why in an office space, yellow provides the perfect boost of energy.

However, too much yellow can over-stimulate, so a half-painted wall or accent soft furnishings can be just enough to leave you feeling ‘Mellow Yellow’.



The result of combining blue and yellow, and with them being somewhat opposite in the emotions and effects they evoke, it’s no surprise that green is considered to be a very balanced colour. Being a dominant colour in nature, it’s closely associated with freshness, grounding, and growth (green means go, right?).

It’s also frequently used to represent health and prosperity. Essentially, green, be it sage, lime or forest, is a great way to bring the outdoors indoors and to reinforce the feeling of country living.
