8 Interior Colors Defined


Almost everyone has a favorite color. Have you ever wondered what your favorite color says about you? Most of us have preferences and are naturally drawn to certain colors, and interior design is no exception. John Elliott Interiors uses color to help express our client's interior design desires. We want to share some insight into the meaning of color and how to use them in your house - from adding energy to creating calmness, learn about the basics of color.

Blue: One of the most popular colors in the world, blue can be used to create an atmosphere of efficiency and relaxation. The color blue has been shown to lower blood pressure and heart rate. It can be used in light shades to make a room appear larger, or cool a space with too much sun and heat. 

Orange: Expand your thinking with orange. This vibrant hue may reduce self-consciousness and inspire confidence. Use it in your home to create a feeling of youth and celebration. Orange accents make a excellent addition to children's rooms and fun spaces.

Green: The psychological effects of green are similar to those of blue. Green is perceived as calm and soothing. You can use green to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home. Green is the color of fresh starts and growth and is the primary color of nature. In an interior, green can be combined with several different colors. Use silk trees to incorporate green and mimic nature.

Red: Bright red is a stimulant that promotes courage and fearlessness. Like orange, use this color when you want to increase self-confidence. Use red with caution, as too much may make you feel over excited or agitated. Red is also known to increase your appetite, making it a popular color to be used in the kitchen. 

Yellow: This cherry color can give a bright and optimistic feeling to your home. Yellow can also be used in spaces where you want to increase your focus. It can help stimulate conversation and clarify thoughts. 

Purple: The effects of purple depend on the richness of the color. Light purple can enhance spirituality and encourage compassion, while dark purple can create a luxurious and expensive looking environment. From serene and calmness to demanding attention, purple has a long-standing reputation of royalty and power. 

Grey: A trending interior color, grey can give a formality that is subtly elegant. Gray color effect can depend on the shade you prefer and comes with multiple undertones. A beautiful shade of grey on the walls can create a clean and refreshing appearance in your interior spaces. 

White: The use of white in creating clean fresh looks in a home has long been popular. White can be used to create an airy atmosphere and can give the impression that rooms are larger or taller than they are. White can work well as a backdrop to emphasize other colors or blended in a neutral interior.
