Color Matters: Hues and Don’ts

Colors are the real mood-makers in a room, aren’t they? They have the power to make your space pop or plop. 

In this blog, we’re explaining how colors make an impact.

1. Color: The Mood Magician

Ever walked into a room and felt instantly uplifted, or maybe surprisingly somber? Blame it on the colors! The shades you choose can cast a spell on the mood of your space. So, if you’re aiming for a room that’s happy, pick a brighter color! If you’re aiming for a room that’s a little more moody, go dark. 

2. Color: The Attention Grabber

Colors aren’t just mood-changers; they’re also attention grabbers. Think of the color as an arrow, pointing the spotlight wherever you want it. Whether it’s a statement you want your team to memorize or direction to the children’s area, colors draw eyeballs like moths to a flame.

A Word Of Caution

Don’t get carried away. Choose your colors wisely, especially when it comes to schools, businesses, and churches. Straying from brand guidelines can send mixed signals. Imagine a school painting its walls neon green (we’ve seen it done) or a church turning its pews electric blue. It might be memorable, but for all the wrong reasons!

Whether you’re creating a sanctuary or a vibrant hangout spot, remember that your choices of color can make or break the mood. Choose wisely, and you’ll have a room that’s not just easy on the eyes but also the mood.
