Using colour to set the moodNovember 5, 2014
A new colour scheme in your home will not only revive the rooms, it will enliven your spirit too. Choosing certain colours can set the overall tone of the property and evoke a mood of peace, tranquility, excitement, femininity or energy for the people who live there.
Typically, each colour creates a commonly shared set of psychological associations which can vary slightly from person to person and differ significantly depending on the context and surrounding colours. Despite such variations, it is useful to have a general description of each colour to better understand the psychological effects they can create. Here at Unique Bedrooms, we have compiled a list of common colour associations to help you create a fresh, warm room for total comfort and relaxation.
If you pine for a space that calms and restores the body and mind, cool, crisp hues are the perfect solution. Pale yellow and peach tones are often utilised for their expansive and open qualities which enhances the feeling of spaciousness. These soft, neutral tints establish a warm and sunny atmosphere within any room in the home. Fresh yellow tones can completely revitalise a room and transform it into an uplifting escape. Deeper shades of yellow deliver warm energy to a room, while still allowing for a richer general colour scheme.

Shades of light green are considered healing colours for your mood, while tones of blue can bring serenity to a room. By incorporating such pale, calming colours, a bedroom, bathroom or lounge can be transformed into a space for you to retreat from the stresses of the outside world. These soft shades can give the room a fresh, clean, natural feel. With its blend of warm red and cool blue, lavender can also transform any room into a peaceful sanctuary.
Style & Personality
You can exhibit style and personality in neutral-coloured rooms, as white or beige tones create the perfect backdrop for showcasing statement accessories. Shades such as these can make your room seem more inviting and, when used in hallways or stairwells, can connect rooms that have differing palettes.
Bespoke fitted furniture immediately creates a sense of luxury and elegance in any room. It is an excellent way of conveying style and charm through your way of decorating and accessorising these statement furniture designs. Harmonising your furniture with the colour palette you have selected is essential to create a distinctive and tasteful room.
The richness of walnut can be applied to modern and traditional properties alike. For a truly serene atmosphere, the warm, orange hues of walnut complement a neutral-coloured room seamlessly.

The mid-tones of a beautiful, golden piece of oak furniture brings light and warmth to a room with a calm, soft palette, such as whites, creams or beiges. Another similar colour trend are lighter wood finishes such as maple which, when blended with pale, neutral tones, help to create a spacious and tranquil room.
When using a new colour scheme to renovate any room in your home, it is important to choose the correct palette which will complement the furniture you will be using in the space. If you have any doubts, the safest thing to do is to test a colour before committing, so you can visualise what the room will look like.
