Keen to chill? These three colours will help you relax.

Your home is your sanctuary and the only space where you can truly relax, unwind and recharge, so does yours allow you to? If not, we’re here to assure you by changing that and bringing some more tranquillity into your home, through colour, is not only easy, but it’ll be fun and rewarding too. We already know that colours have a profound impact on our moods and emotions, so how can we harness that to create a peaceful and tranquil space in your home?

One. Use blues. Blue is known to evoke a sense of calm, so why not find a space for some soothing blue hues in your home? These colours remind us of calm and clear waters which really do have significant emotional and psychological effects on us – think of how you feel on the way home from a trip to any body of water. Doesn’t matter if it’s a pool, the ocean or even a lake, water calms us, and you can use that to your advantage in your home.

Two. Go green. And no, we don’t mean eco-friendly, although we are all for that as well! We mean literally. Find some shades and hues of green to use in your home and you’ll not only invite some harmony, peace and stillness into your space, but it’ll remind your brain of being in nature. We all know there is nothing better for us than being outside in nature, by incorporating those familiar colours indoors we can evoke the same feelings of comfort, belonging and freshness.

Three. Nice and neutral. Serenity is the ultimate goal here, so why not go with the more serene and calming hues of the lot by using neutral colours mostly, and only adding accents of colour. This is possible because of the flexibility neutral colours afford you. They pair easily, match and complement accessories and furniture, without demanding any attention or consideration, they create the perfect calm backdrop for you to adorn as your own.

Incorporating any of these three colour schemes into your home and rooms will undoubtedly help create a more relaxing and calming environment for you to recharge in. You can blend them too as the combination of blues, earthy neutrals, and greens are the colours that bring your comfort, and peace, in nature, so bring them into your home and let them do the same for you.
