How Paint Colors Help You Achieve Your Goals in 2023
You were probably introduced to color psychology sometime in middle school or high school art class, but the concept extends far beyond the classroom.The colors within your home (or home office) influence the mood of the space. Keep in mind these general rules:
- Pale Colors. Pale colors are light and airy, which can help a room feel uplifting. This is especially true in yellow, green, and blue hues.
- Neutrals. Earthy neutral tones such as cream, taupe, and gray are grounding. Choose these colors if you want to stay calm and focused.
- Whites. Classic and pristine, whites are a “clean slate.” They invite you to express yourself on a blank canvas. Choose this if you want the influence of your office to be, well, yourself!
- Deep and bold. Rich, bold colors bring more emotion than the rest of the colors on this list. Choose deep and bold paint colors if you want drama, mystery, or power to imbue your home office.
