March 21st 2019 marks the 9th year of celebrating International Colour Day, and as our part in the event we are taking a look at the colours we chose to decorate our homes, how they are a direct reflection of our personality and the fact that there may be more to our colour choices than meets the eye.
Many experts have found that different colours effect our mood and feelings in very different ways. While some colours are calming and encourage a zen like existence, others if not used sparingly, can summon feelings of frustration and anger.
International Colour Day reminds us it is important to think about the colours you love and how they make you feel. A truly beautiful home is one where those living within its walls have combined the colours they love in a well thought out manner.
When faced with a whole house to chose colours for it can seem very daunting. Colour can not only change the feel or atmosphere of a room, it can also trick the eye into perceiving the room as a different size or shape altogether. Picking colours can be fun and in no way perilous if you are aware of the basics about colour and its effects.
So, which colours should you think about for which room? And of equal importance, which St Mawes Gallery artwork should you consider to sit alongside?
