Green is a great colour to use in a home office; this is because green is shown to improve concentration. The reason for this seems to be the link between the colour green and nature, which provides a calming, but not tiring, effect on the brain.
Your workout room should be a combination of warm and cool colours; the warm colours are there for stimulation and motivation, but an all-red room will actually leave you feeling too hot, and may lead to your workout ending early. A combination of blues and yellows, with green to increase concentration, can really help extend your workout.
Yellow is a great colour to use for an entryway; yellow increases optimism, and it can be reassuring to leave or enter your home with a bright burst of sunshine. It can be used to equally good effect on your door or porch; when the first or last thing you see is yellow, you’re sure to be inspired.
Purple is my favorite colour, but it should be used sparingly in interior painting; purple is rarely found in nature, and when it is, it’s usually poisonous. When using purple, have more natural colours like subtle yellows and greens in the room; this makes the purple pop while still maintaining a found-in-nature colour palette.
Brown can be a wonderful colour in a living room or den, especially one adorned with a lot of wood or leather. This colour can be incorporated in a sophisticated looking colour palette, but beware of overuse, which can look drab.
Pink is a great colour for relaxation; if there’s a room you would like to use for meditation, yoga, or other mindfulness cultivating activities, pink can bring you to a state of serenity. This colour is important not to overuse in your home, though, as too much can leave you feeling sleepy.
Bathroom fixtures should remain white; white is associated with purity and cleanliness, which is perfect for the purposes of the room. More importantly, the psychological and physiological detriment of having a dirty space means it’s important to be able to clean your fixtures easily, and mess shows up less clearly on any non-white colours.
Nature has the best colour palette; if you’re feeling uninspired, going out into nature can give you a great idea of how to use different colours in your home.
