What do you consider when choosing bedroom colors? If you have not yet paid attention to the psychological and sensory influence of colors it is time to review your concepts. Planning the home from a decorative standpoint is very important, but it also needs to be thought out from the subjective needs of each person.
Yes, because for each emotion or sensation, there is a specific room color that is directly related. For those who need a little push at bedtime, they can count on the help of the color blue. For those who just want a good place to relax and rest, the option is to bet on the shades of green, and for those who prefer a mother’s collar or that feeling of warmth, can lean on the shades of yellow.
Psychology explains that room colors alter our sensory perception. The first to say this was the German Van Goethe in his work “Theory of Colors”, published in 1810 and which until today has repercussions in the academic, scientific and philosophical milieu. Goethe realized that bedroom colors cause sensations in our mind, confronting Isaac Newton who believed that colors were a purely physical phenomenon.
With Goethe’s theory, a broad field of study on the influence of color has begun to emerge, and today it is possible to state, with scientific support, how bedroom colors change the reality around us. It works something like this in our body: vision sends information to the brain, which in turn captures these stimuli and relates them to memory and patterns related to a particular color. For this reason, red brings us heat, fire and energy, while green brings us the sense of balance found in the midst of nature.
Thus, the colors of each room of the house will arouse specific sensations and emotions. With this information in mind, it is easier to reach a consensus when choosing the room color palette.
Continue to follow the post that we will explain the effect of each color for the room, the best combinations and, to top it off, a beautiful selection of images so you can already feel the sensations that each arouses. Ready for this immersion in the world of room colors? So, come on:
