Colour Facts For February 2019

Colour Facts For February 2019
  1. Goodbye violet and hello coral. Pantone has named “Living Coral” its Colour of the Year for 2019. ‘Living coral’ is an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. In the natural world, coral is a calcium-carbonate skeleton that is formed by tiny undersea polyp that cluster together to form reefs. However, naturally-occurring coral is not always orangish-pink loving coral edition. Sometimes it’s gold, pink, or even black. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid ecosystem, Living Coral is symbolic of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour.

  2. Heard of synesthesia? Around 4 percent of humans can hear colours. This condition is called synesthesia. Synesthesia happens when someone's senses are blended. Scans proved that the brain’s regions for sight and sound are activated when somebody experiences this phenomenon. A sound or word can automatically trigger a colour in the mind’s eye. A 2018 study decided to search for answers inside DNA. This was not a bad idea because synesthesia often runs in families. Synesthetes can not only smell colours but also see scents and taste sounds. Research proves that these people experience reality in a different way.

  3. Colours are responsible for 62-90% of our first impressions of one another. If you prefer a particular colour, you may be subconsciously drawn to other individuals who are wearing that colour. Certain colours trigger an emotional response. That means that if you prefer black and neutrals to violets and oranges, it might be time to add a little colour to a bland wardrobe to make a better overall impression. Learning which colour gives the best impression will help you in meeting new people, landing a job or an interesting potential partner.

Colour Tips For February 2019

Colour Tips For February 2019
  1. A beautifully decorated hallway sets the tone for the rest of the house. When it comes to paint colour, you can either go for bold statement hues or choose a welcoming and soothing palette. Neutrals will obviously ensure that your hallway feels light and airy, but also consider light and mid-tone shades of yellow, green, pink and blue or go for pastel colours for a cheery and uplifting feel. When in doubt, there’s always the perfect timeless grey. Don’t be reserved on the colour choices and step outside of your comfort zone by choosing a bold hue for a hallway.

  2. Never settle on one look for your house. Allow your space to continuously change just as your life does. Remember that your home needs to evolve just like you. As and when you can , try to spruce the décor with a collectible or a treasure from your recent travel or go for a DIY. You could even switch or mix and match things you own currently. Your nest should always be a place of comfort and inspiration, and it's a constant work in progress. Also remember that matching all the rooms in the house is a myth. If you decide you want a contemporary bedroom décor but a modern living room decor, go for it! Switch ‘em, when you feel like.

  3. A transitional style goes with every home. The look is a hybrid of modern and traditional — perfect for updating older home styles like Colonial or Victorian, or warming up a new-construction home. In short, transitional home decor is the combination of various design styles brought together simultaneously to create a cohesive design in one room. The transitional home decorating style involves the use of dark woods, stone, neutral colours and earthy reds, sages and olive greens as accent colours. Transitional style is great for those who aren’t interested in freezing their homes interior design to one design style.
