Use Safe colours – If you can’t decide what colours to use, go safely. Use cool colours. Cool colours are generally known to make you feel calm and relaxed while warm colours add energy and warmth to a room. You could use ivory for your living area and a low saturated shade of blue or pink for your bedroom.
Hacks For An Office Area:
Brand colours -The first set of colours to consider are your brand colours. These colours already represent what your company stands for. If your brand colours are too loud you can consider using cooler colours as the background.
Warm colours – For most companies, the go-to colours are between grey and off-white. White is neutral, however, can be very stark and harsh – an off-white is generally recommended. This is because these colours are very accommodating. When mixed with other colours, artworks and designs. Warm colours are known to evoke emotions of warmth.
Productive colours – The most productive colour according to Google is blue. Yes, there are different shades of blue and some would look totally disturbing on your wall. Go for low saturated blue shades. Other productive colours include ivory, white, low saturated grey etc. These colours will definitely trigger creativity.
