The meaning of different colours
There are many meanings behind different colours. Many often link them to temperatures, with colours such as reds and oranges being considered warm, and blues and purples being considered cold. But it doesn’t stop there, as colours are also often linked to different personality traits and emotions.
Colours can change how we feel and make us perform certain actions. For instance, the universal colour for ‘Stop’ or ‘Danger’ is red for a reason, not because it was someone’s favourite. So, if you’re thinking of painting a room, it might be worth thinking how you want the room to make people feel. Below is a guide to colours and their positive emotional links:
Red: Courage, passionate, and romantic.
Yellow: Happiness, intellect, and joy
Green: Friendly, welcoming and peaceful
Blue: Calm, health and tranquillity
Purple: Peaceful, romantic and nostalgic
Orange: Exciting, stimulating and playful
Pink: Innocence, nurture and love
Black: Powerful, secure and sophisticated
White: Clean, simplistic and healthy
