How Your Interior Colours Choices Affect Your Mood

There is no doubt that colour can have a powerful affect over our mood, making choosing interior colours for a home a much more considered decision than simply picking what looks aesthetically best.

Our new Comfort palette from The Haymes Colour Library Volume 11 – Colour Conscience, is all about discussing the underlying thoughts around how colour impacts our moods, and how it can be used in the home to encourage comfort and wellness.

Showcasing dark, intense hues and complex colour combinations, this palette works to absorb the light in a room to create quiet and calm, whilst still injecting a subtle warmth and softness to interior spaces. This effect simulates a ‘colour cocoon’, a safe space that offers a sense of security and wellbeing, and slows down the senses from the fast pace of everyday life.

The styling of this palette is Japandi inspired, a style popping up on the interior design scene that sees the simplistic and minimal scandi look combined with the darker, more layered look of Japanese design. Incorporating beautiful tactile materials like velvet and linen in soft furnishings, throws and cushions, as well as textures like rattan and foliage to add that warm and comforting touch.
