How color affects your mood, have you been stressed recently?

by Johnny Haiki

The power of color is inescapable. Color affects your behavior, moods, and thoughts.  Your reactions to colors are often deeply personal and rooted in your own experiences. A certain color has the ability to soothe your frazzled nerves, agitate a hostile adversary, motivate and empower you to take action, and also to bring healing energy when you need it. As Wassily Kandinsky proclaimed, “Color provokes a psychic vibration. Color hides a power still unknown but real, which acts on every part of the human body.”

The color you choose for your space needs to be intentional. Colors in the red area of the color spectrum are known as warm colors and include red, orange, and yellow. These warm colors evoke emotions ranging from feelings of warmth and comfort to feelings of anger and hostility.

Colors on the blue side of the spectrum are known as cool colors and include blue, purple, and green. These colors are often described as calm, but can also call to mind feelings of sadness or indifference.

Ochre, orangebrown and mustard yellow are all classic midcentury modern paint colors. Whether paired with other colors or used for a clean, monochromatic look, these earthy hues reflect the handcrafted, organic nature of midcentury modern design. The understated warmth of teak, and other medium-toned woods is a trademark of midcentury modern style.

The power and influence in color can help navigate your emotions throughout the day, Mid Century Modern colors have an amazing capability of calming down the mind, welcoming new energy and redirecting stress.
