Interior Calming Colors

Interior Calming Colors

Create a relaxing oasis of a room instead using the calming colors. Calming colors promote feelings of calm, rest and relaxation. The most calming colors are generally believed to be cool shades such as green and blue. Designers, psychologists, feng shui experts, and advertisers all agree that blues and greens make us feel calm, balanced, and less emotional. They use these hues, especially a sage green, in hospitals, test centers, and television stations to ease nerves and attenuate harsh emotions. Whether this reaction has to do with the effect of wavelengths on brain chemistry, linguistic associations, cultural meanings, or coincidence, has yet to be fully determined. Interior designers noted that people consistently describe rooms painted blue and green as relaxing and harmonious, a finding that has been backed up by scientific studies. Architects and painters use colors from the cool part of the spectrum like blues and greens on walls and ceilings in bedrooms and bathrooms where people like feeling peaceful.

And browns and tans can be your another choice of calming colors. Browns and tans are considered neutral colours and make good choices when decorating a room. Like green, brown and tan are derived from nature, and are inherently relaxing. Walls painted in a soft brown and accented with tan trim provide a relaxing backdrop for a room. Stick with classic white or black accents such as pillows and lighting and you will have a comfortable and classic room.
