As kids we’re told that the sun is warm and yellow; water, blue and cool, and these are things that have no doubt stuck with us. Colors and emotions are closely linked. Warm colors can evoke different emotions than cool colors and bright colors can create different feelings than muted colors. They can make us feel happy or sad, and they can make us feel hungry or relaxed. These reactions are rooted in psychological effects, biological conditioning, and cultural imprinting.
Today, as we’re stuck in our homes, the colors around us play a greater impact on our mental and psychological health than ever. Our home ambience heavily influences our mood.
Red is the color of passion and energy. The warmest and most dynamic of the colors—it triggers opposing emotions. It is often associated with passion and love as well as anger and danger. It can increase a person’s heart rate and make them excited.
It’s used to draw attention since it’s a bold colour. But it should be used as an accent color in moderation as it can be overwhelming. So while shopping for cushion covers online or new aprons for your kitchen, this is a colour you want but definitely don’t want to overdo.
Yellow is the colour of happiness and spontaneity.
Yellow is perhaps the most energetic of the warm colors. It is associated with laughter, hope and sunshine. Accents of yellow help give your room energy and will make you feel optimistic and cheerful. However, yellow tends to reflect more light and can irritate a person’s eyes. Too much yellow can be overwhelming and should be used sparingly. It is often used to grab attention in an energetic and comforting way.
