What Color Should You Use When Decorating?

Not sure what colors to use when it comes to decorating your home? Color can elicit different emotions, so it is important to know how it can influence your mood prior to starting that next home improvement project. Here's a rundown of different colors and the psychology behind using each one:

Color Is Key To Home Decor

RED is an intense color that can be used to attract attention. It can be great for an accent wall or as accessories to bring color to a neutral space.

ORANGE is a warm and welcoming color that works well in an entry way or living room. You can also bring some fun energy to a child's playroom using this color in the space. 

YELLOW evokes energy and excitement and is perfect for a sun room, kitchen, or child's bedroom. However, babies are known to cry more around this color - so you may want to hold off using it in your newborn's room.
Yellow Evokes Energy
GREEN is a soothing and peaceful color that symbolizes nature. This color works well in a dining room or area of your home where relaxation is key.

BLUE creates peaceful and tranquil feelings. It is a color often used in the bedroom to induce sleep.

PURPLE can be used to create a romantic and elegant space. You can create a rich and luxurious feel to any room of your home using this color.  

BROWN is a popular color used to create an inviting and cozy feel. 
Brown Feels Cozy
BLACK creates a bold and powerful look and is a color that never seems to go out of style.

Still not sure what color to use? Here's a great Designer Tip: Pull some clothes from your closet and see what colors you gravitate towards. It will be a clue as to what to use in your home.
