Colours have been known to influence our moods and temperament. This phenomenon is not just observed in humans, but also in animals and even birds. And the right colour in your home can impact how you feel or perform greatly.

Do you read motivational books? Drink caffeine to feel awake? Deep breathe to relieve stress? We bet you’ve tried it all to uplift your mood and feel cheerful. But, have you ever thought that by simply changing the colour of your walls, you can influence your mood too?

Let’s take a look at some colours for wall paint for interiors and how they can affect your mood:

Go for sunshine yellow if you want a piece of cheer and happiness

Warm colours like yellow and orange are proven to exude feelings of happiness. They are mood enhancers since their hues represent sunshine, the summer and everything bright and happy. These colours are great, especially for darker corners of the house. However, it is best to use this hue as an accent wall and keep rest of the walls in a neutral or muted tone to balance the brightness of this colour. Yellow, is in fact also said to enhance the appetite. A good reason why you will see a lot of fast food chains embrace this colour in their décor or accents.

Looking to uplift the energy in the space? Red will do the trick

If you are thinking of painting ideas for interior walls that will instantly infuse a dose of energy to a space, red is a great choice. This colour evokes feelings of bravery and courage. It is ideal for high-energy areas like the living room. When using this colour, ensure the space is open, spacious and well-lit. We recommend complimenting this colour with a neutral or lighter hue and use it as an accent instead of painting all walls red.

For a calm oasis in your house, opt for lavender

Lavender, both smell and colour are said to have calming effects. This colour is ideal for bedrooms since it can help you sleep better and relax at the end of the day. It is also said to open up a room and make it look and feel more spacious.
