Queues, adverse weather conditions, traffic jams – they all collude to sap our energy! However, there is a solution!
Our mood is directly affected by colour – for instance green is a restful colour, so is pleasing for your Bedroom or Bathroom, and we would recommend it for spaces where you wish to be calm and relaxed to aid your sleep or begin your day.
For example if we wanted to influence our productivity, blue is known to lower the heart rate, so your study or office would benefit from this centred colour – and when complemented with green, makes for a positive and inspiring environment.
An emotional space such as the Kitchen or Dining Room would be greatly enhanced by yellow – a great stimulus for confidence and optimism, something creativity needs in spoonfuls!
But you see how this works, you can be rich, deep or light – in any colour the stimulus will be the same.
Paint is such a simple solution and one we can embrace as either a permanent, or brief, colour change.
Working, as we do here at Sara Slade, with Paint & Paper Library, Zoffany, Little Greene, and Mylands, this then gives us the opportunity to choose from a wide range of colours and finishes.
